New Indiegogo smartwatch promises Windows Phone compatibility

Smartwatches have become very popular in the last year, especially watches that connect to smartphones. Places like Kickstarter and Indiegogo have seen an influx in smartwatches that work with Android and iOS, but Windows Phone has been left out. One reason for this is the Bluetooth tech that Windows Phone uses. A new smartwatch on Indiegogo, however, says they will have Windows Phone support at launch.

The VEA Buddy bluetooth smartwatch is the first watch that we’ve seen to include Windows Phone support. It can control the phone to make calls, see text messages, read emails, check Facebook, and control music. Their goal for funding is $320,000. They still have two months left in the campaign to raise $300,000. If you’ve been wanting a watch that will work with your Windows Phone this is the best one so far. Head on over to Indiegogo below to help fund the project. Here are some specs:

  • Thickness:8 mm
  • Screen:tactile, capacitive, 2″ ultra high contrast panel
  • Button: just one, on the left bottom corner
  • Bluetooth: 4.0
  • SoC:MTK
  • Memory:internal 8 GB
  • Frame:Metal
  • Band: Elastomer
  • USB port: at the end of the band USB port
  • Battery life: 10 days or 2 weeks standby.
  • Water-resistant: 3ATM

    Not bad! Good looking product, too. I happen to love smart watches, but we need to get some kind of platform. These are all different, have different apps and functions, and need different coding. Google should set a standard on smart watches to make it easier for devs.

    and unfortunately according to the New York Times, Apple is going to be the first to the starting line for Smartwatches…. Sad. My guess is that they wanted to stay away from playing chicken with Google on Project Glass
