Beating the Neptune Pine Smartwatch to the punch, the first true smartwatch may be available very soon with the GEAK Watch. The company is a Shanghai-based subsidiary of content giant Shanda, and it’s packed with lots of features and components that almost sounds too good to be true. The wearable device features a 802.11b/g/n WiFi module, which enables the watch to run on the Android 4.1 system so it can download apps directly to the watch and get OTA updates as well. Users can also create wireless ad hoc network so that they can instant message with other users who are near them. Of course, the GEAK includes voice-to-text input.
The GEAK watch also features Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC for device pairing, along with GPS and FM radio, with it’s own built-in headphone jack. Besides these features, the watch comes with numerous sensors that can monitor sleeping patterns, blood pressure, pulse, body temperature and a nifty little pedometer.
All of these features are packed into an 8mm-thin body with a rare 1GHz Ingenic JZ4774 brain, which is based on MIPS architecture and is accompanied by 512MB of RAM and 4GB of storage. Powering it is a 500mAh lithium polymer cell, with no word on how long it will last. Everything is controlled via the 1.55-inch, 240 x 240 multi-touch OGS display. It’s water resistant and is only priced at $330. You’ll be able to pre-order this thing in china starting July 3rd.
