We have exclusive first photos of the Bluboo Xwatch, a wearable with all metal body and running a full Android OS.
Bluboo have gone full on smartwatch with their first wearable. What this means is that the Bluboo Xwatch won’t just simply count how many steps you walk or send you basic notifications, but you will actually be able to run apps!
Back in the early days of Chinese wearable’s we saw a few manufacturers toying with the idea of a full Android system on a smartwatch, and this year we are seeing companies move back to that idea as they try to emulate Android Wear, Google’s wearable OS.
Our sources at Bluboo say that the Xwatch in the photos is running a pre-release version of it’s OS, but gives a good indication of what to expect from the smartwatch.
Bluboo Xwatch Price and Specifications
Along with these new photos Bluboo have also confirmed the price of the Xwatch to be $99.99. For that price you would be buying a full metal watch with choice of coloured bezel, with 1.3-inch oncell display.
Android will run on a Mediatek chipset with 512mb RAM and 4GB storage for apps and music. The 9.8mm metal body will also house a large 480mAh battery.
Bluboo plan to release the Xwatch on sale next month, we will try to get a sample for review as soon as possible.
