Smart watches have been dreamed up and produced in some cases, for years already, but for some reason they did not really have a break through yet. Maybe that has to do with the fact, that what they had to offer was not attractive enough. With the rise of the smartphone and mobile technology in general, that might be about to change.
MetaWatch is getting ready to launch their new Strata. After having designed and tested a prototype already, they are now raising funds on Kickstarter to go into production.
Strata, is a smart sportwatch designed to compliment your smartphone and give you Hands Freedom™. With a Bluetooth 4.0 connection to your iPhone 4s or Android smartphone, you can check messages, see who’s calling, control music, view weather, and more, all from your wrist.
