There is no denying that Wearables are a thing of the future. The first generation Android Wear smartwatches including the Moto 360 cannot last more than a day at best.
A company called COM based out of Brooklyn, New York started an Indiegogo campaign for a new Android-Wear-powered watch called Com1.Starting at a mere $125, the Com1 offers almost the same features as the current smartwacthes The 10mm watch is said to have “around 2 days” of battery life. That’s one thing we cannot verify at the moment and we hope that they will be able to deliver that.
The Com 1 will be available in Aluminum (aircraft grade) and stainless steel. The latter will be the thinnest of both at 8mm instead of 10mm. As far as specs are concerned, here is the full list:
