No.1 were one of the first to merge Android and the rugged phone, and now they could be using that same knowhow to release their first rugged smartwatch.
I’ve often wondered what a smartwatch made by Casio for their G Shock range would look like, but it’s Chinese wearable maker No.1 who have brought the concept to life with their latest A10.
Off the top of our head this is the first wearable from China that is designed specifically as a rugged device. If you’re not convinced then just take a look at the ‘black and yellow’ danger colours which would be enough to prove that this watch means business. Of course I am joking and the colour option is a little 1980’s, but thankfully a more subtle grey and blue versions are available too.
In the photos you can see the No.1 A10 features a round display that is protected by the rubber bumper design and there is IP-68 stamped on it in bold letters (meaning its been tested to survive at depths of 5 meters for 60 minutes).
Going through the specs of the watch it appears the A10 is running a Mediatek based wearable OS with support for pulse monitoring, temperature sensor and even smart fitness monitoring that will even recognise different swimming strokes to log them correctly.
No.1 have have the full details of the A10 rugged watch on their website, but at this time there are no pricing details.
