A few days ago we told you about the Gnomio Smart Watch, a device in development that aimed to be compatible with Windows Phone in order to provide quick access to messages and notifications. The campaign has now been cancelled and donors on IndieGoGo are receiving refunds. No specific reason has been given for the cancellation, but it’s likely the developer may have believed that the $100,000 funding goal wouldn’t be met. The campaign page on IndieGoGo is now also set to private.
The release date for the watch was set for April of next year, which seems ambitious for such a new product, so that could have factored into the cancellation as well. This is a bummer for those of you who were excited to use such a product, but most people who viewed it didn’t see the use beyond athletes.
