While most Smartwatches are designed for all genders, many remain more appealing to men because of their size, weight and shape. Omate has tackled this with a new slimline design called the Lutetia which is specifically designed to be more appealing to women.
Omate, a smartwatch manufacturer from Mountain View, California, has created the Lutetia Smartwatch, a new take on the design choices currently being offered. The intention is of the Lutetia is to be more appealing to women who want a smartwatch but do not like the styling of the models widely available now.
The Lutetia has the design and feel of jewelry rather than a piece of technology as it is crafted out of stainless steel and comes in silver, gold and rose gold variants. The watch face measures 40mm in diameter and is slim at just under an inch in thickness thick with only one button on the right side to maintain its elegance and fashionable design.
The Lutetia pairs with smartphones via a Bluetooth® Low Energy 4.0 connection to push notifications for emails, incoming calls and social media updates to a user's wrist and has an always-on capacitive touch-screen that changes to various light conditions. The all-in-one watch also features an alarm, stopwatch, timer functions and pedometer capabilities to assist with day-to-day lives.
Omate's smartwatches are powered by the MediaTek Aster (MT2502) SoC that features the ARM7TM processor. The Aster chip was chosen by Omate as it is the world's smallest commercial SoC for wearable technology.
To maintain the Lutetia's exclusivity, the first batch of devices will receive limited edition status, with each wearable being engraved with a number from 1-1000.
