From Crowdfunding to Crowd Pleaser: iMCO’s CoWatch, World’s First Available Alexa-Enabled Smartwatch, Debuts on Amazon.com
Compatible with both iOS and Android, CoWatch accelerates from Indiegogo to mass market
SAN FRANCISCO – September 21, 2016 – iMCO, a global innovator in smart wearables and devices, today announced the availability of CoWatch, the first available Alexa-enabled smartwatch that gives customers voice control from their wrist. This is also the first smartwatch powered by the Cronologics OS, a revolutionary operating system built by Google and Android veterans, and is compatible with both iOS and Android devices.
CoWatch began its crowdfunding journey on Indiegogo back in April of this year and exceeded funding expectations by 280 percent. Since then, the team has been working toward meeting demand for broader consumer availability and distribution.
“We’ve been extremely pleased with the positive response from our initial backers and early adopters,” said Danny Dong, Founder and CEO of iMCO. “Being able to offer CoWatch on Amazon.com only four short months after our initial crowdfunding campaign is a testament to the product’s unique design and functionality as well as the success of our strategic partnerships with Cronologics and work with the Alexa team.”
With the Alexa integration, users can simply push-to-talk and quickly hear the news, get the weather, check the traffic, order a pizza, control their smart home, check their calendars, add items to a shopping list, track their Amazon orders, and more just by using their voice.
“The Alexa Voice Service makes it easy for companies like CoWatch to integrate Alexa into their devices,” said Aaron Brown, Director, Alexa. “We are impressed by the design and functionality of the smartwatch and excited to be working with CoWatch to offer customers a seamless Alexa experience in a compact wearable device.”
“The design of the watch combined with an operating system that was built from the ground up to focus on the wearable device rather than the phone, is a perfect balance of both form and function,” said Cronologics’ Co-Founder and CEO, Leor Stern.
In addition to its unique connectivity with Alexa, the sleekly designed CoWatch tracks your activity, offers up to 32 hours of battery life under normal use with an always-on display in 400×400 pixel high-resolution and fracture-resistant touch screen. CoWatch is powered by Ingenic dual-core 1.2GHz & 300MHz mobile processor created for smart wearables, and equipped by 1GB memory & 8GB storage, the highest capacity in the smartwatch market.
As part of today’s launch, customers can now pre-order two CoWatch color options on Amazon.com (estimated availability for shipping on September 25): Mineral Silver with matching stainless steel band at $279, and Carbon Black with matching stainless steel band at $299. Leather straps with three color options: Ink Black, Charcoal Gray and Dark Coffee Brown are also available to purchase and exchangeable with the metal band. More than 20 watch faces will be available at launch and more to add every month so CoWatch users can choose any design to fit any occasions. In addition to selectable watch faces, the ceramic decoration ring around the stainless steel watch case is also customizable in various graphics to fit any style.
