iMCO Watch, world’s first Alexa-powered smartwatch, launched in India
Unveiled in April last year, the Amazon Alexa-powered CoWatch has now been rebranded as the iMCO Watch, and is now available in India via Yerha.com.
The iMCO Watch brings Alexa’s voice-based assistant functionality
like asking for weather, controlling your smart home, looking up
information on the Wen, or ordering stuff online.
The iMCO Watch sports a 400 x 400 pixel AMOLED display and is
powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core processor with 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of
inbuilt storage. It boasts of accelerometer, gyroscope, and magnetometer
as well as a heart sensor.
The smartwatch is made entirely of stainless steel apart from the
ceramic ring, and is dust and water resistant. You can activate Alexa
by pressing down the crown button or by tapping the Alexa icon on the
display. There’s no voice-activation like Echo devices though.
iMCO Watch runs on Cronologics OS, company’s own Android-based
operating system. While it is compatible with both Android and iOS, all
computing on Cronologics happens either on the watch or on the cloud, so
the watch is not necessarily reliant on the smartphone to work.
Available in two color variants – Mineral Silver and Carbon Black – the iMCO Watch is available for ₹14,990 ($232) from Yerha, the homegrown e-commerce startup in India.
