The Story

The OMATE smartwatch was a result of work that Laurent Le Pen and associates had done around ruggedized computing with Sonim. After making a couple of key breakhroughs in their development such as placement of the GPS and 3G radio in the watch's wristband, the company decided to push forward and create a smartwatch. OMATE launches its Kickstarter campaign on August 21, 2013 and less than a day later reached its funding target of $100 thousand. The campaign ended with $1,032,352. The watch is expected to ship in February 2014
