Other information indicates the phone is a companion to a Smartphone via Bluetooth, however, it can run as standalone mode when connected to a WiFi network. In addition to remote dial, receive text, Social media interaction etc.. the device is load with app capable monitoring your health with heart rate, steps, calories intake, etc..
It has a 4-megapixel camera built into the strap, and tiny speakers in the clasp. You can measure health data through the camera. Take a picture of your food, and you can tag it according to what type of food it is, such as “grains” or “fat.” It’s a clear swipe at Google Glass — but would anyone take photos of their meals from a watch, other than for spy movie appeal?
The Smartphone will be unveiled on September 4th at IFA in Germany.
