Omate announces the Omate Wherecom S3 a 3G wearable GPS smartwatch for Senior powered by Android in collaboration with European Distributor ADMEA and mobile safety, security and LBS specialist Monitorlinq. ADMEA and Omate signs distribution agreement for France and Spain.
The Omate S3 is the merger of a Wearable GPS Tracker and 3G Standalone Smartwatch powered by Android.
Based on the same architecture as the Omate Wherecom K3 designed for six to nine years old, the engineering team of Omate is extending its partnership with Monitorlinq to offer intelligent & advanced location and alert services to the Omate wearable tech platform.
The S3 is a 3G standalone smartwatch that seniors can easily use to connect with family members and contact someone in case of a fall and other critical issues.
The S3 incorporates a dialer, a message hub, an alarm reminder for users taking medication; a pedometer and a one-click SOS button which will push the GPS location of the wearer via WiFi or 3G to the connected contacts via an app.
“Combined with services tailored to Mobile Network Operators, tele-assistance and insurance companies, the Omate S3 is a unique wearable device which opens up the possibility of completely new family user experiences. Omate is a pioneer of the telecom standalone wearables and offers Tier 1 quality products at a competitive pricing. We are excited to offer the Omate S3 to our partners in France and Spain.” says Philippe Samuel, CEO of ADMEA Group.
“From fashion sport smartwatch like the Omate Rise, to child-friendly product like the recently released K3, and now this addition of a standalone smartwatch for seniors, Omate really does have something for everyone. A wristwatch is something many seniors have worn all their lives. ADMEA has deep knowledge of the senior segment through its existing product portfolio which makes it the ideal distribution partner for the Omate S3.” says Laurent Le Pen, CEO at Omate.
Like the Omate K3, the Omate S3 integrates a state-of-the-art internal printed antenna technology into its case which allows the straps to be interchanged for a more personal touch.
The Omate S3 can last up to two days on a single charge and triangulates a location using GPS, 3G GSM cellular networks and Wi-Fi hotspots, for a more accurate positioning to allow family members to communicate and locate the wearer.
The Omate S3 is powered by a 3G Dual-core 1Ghz ARM Cortex-A7 MediaTek MT6572M, and an ARM Mali-400 MP GPU.
The combination of optimum power savings and silicon area efficiency of the Mali-400 GPU make it the ideal choice to suit the low power of the wearables market.
The device sports a 1.54” color display with a resolution of 320×320, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, and 3G connectivity either 1900MHz (US) or 2100MHz (EU). Alike the K3, the Omate S3 is audio certified by Arkamys to provide a unique clarity feeling by reaching loud and dynamic sound ideal for voice conversations through a standalone telecom wearable.
The Omate S3 will be available unlocked at a recommended retail price of 149 Euros in France and Spain from September through European retailers and e-tailers.
Monitorlinq services will be accessible through several GSM mobile network operators and insurance companies from Q4 2016.
