What do you get when you mix a little bit of Apple, a lot of Android and package it in a wearable form factor? Well, the iMacwear smartwatch is a pretty good bet.
Chinese companies love copying other products, particularly Apple products.
This new kid on the block, however, even goes as far as to copy the nomenclature that the Cupertino based technology giant uses. The name of this company is iMacwear, and it specializes in wearable devices — which are essentially mini computers.
These days, there is no shortage of Android Wear products.
But this one is actually different in the sense that it uses Android proper, and make for a standalone device, without the need of a smartphone companion. The Galaxy Gear S is one such gizmo, though Samsung has priced it rather high.
At $350, it is almost at the levels of the Apple Watch.
However, as reported here, the iMacwear M7 aims to solve this little conundrum. It is a full Android smartwatch with that can replace your smartphone if you want.
You get 2G, 3G and WCDMA for calls and browsing, which can be done on the 1.6-inch touchscreen display. The watch also comes with three physical buttons — the top one being power, the lower one serving as the home key, while the large middle one acts as a 5 megapixel camera.
Technology, these days!
Internally you get a 1.2GHz processors that is paired with 512MB of RAM, 4GB of storage and a 600 mAh battery that should hopefully last you through the day.
We don’t know how much juice it provides, as the M7 goes on sale in China on November 20, for a very alluring price tag of $159.
