The SpeedUp SmartWatch is a revolutionary wearable technology designed for a new category of wearable devices. It features a full tempered glass multi-touch 1.54” display, IP57 Water Resistant Technology, and unique functionality to keep people connected to the world. The SpeedUp SmartWatch incorporates an industry leading, low power MIPS-based CPU, which enables the new SmartWatch to be highly power-efficient and running Google’s latest Android 4.4 ‘KitKat’ operating system.

Rahmad Widjaja Sakti, Vice President of Product and Marketing SpeedUp, said, “One of our key priorities in 2014 is creating innovative and practical wearable technologies with long life battery. We chose a MIPS-based processor given its industry-leading low power design and complete support of Android by Google. We are proud to achieve this milestone of delivering the world’s first Android 4.4 KitKat smartwatch, and do it so early in the year. Because of its unique and appealing design, we believe consumers will be eager to adopt the SpeedUp SmartWatch, making it a significant milestone for us in penetrating the wearable technologies market.”

According to Amit Rohatgi, Vice President of Strategic Marketing, Imagination Technologies, “With its elegant, high-performance, low-power design, the MIPS architecture is an ideal fit for wearable devices. SpeedUp clearly recognized this and was able to leverage a MIPS-based processor in its innovative product for the fast-emerging wearable device category. We are delighted to work closely with SpeedUp on future innovations.”

In addition to standard functionality such as displaying time, date and weather, the SpeedUp SmartWatch incorporates a push notification feature to enable all Android and iOS devices users to stay connected to their devices. Users can be notified about incoming calls, chats (whatsapp, BBM, etc), social media (Facebook, Twitter, etc), email, alarm, calendar, and weather information with just a glance.

A Camera Remote Control feature enables the SpeedUp SmartWatch to take remote snapshots for Android or iOS devices with full screen camera preview, front and rear camera control, and remote snapshot button. In addition, a “Find My Device” feature enables users to easily locate a misplaced smart phone or tablet by sending a notification to remotely activate vibrations and/or ringing.

To help consumers on the journey towards a healthy lifestyle, the Practical Pedometer feature automatically tracks fitness stats such as step count, distance, and calories, enabling users to enjoy the morning run, stay connected and analyze their performance through daily, weekly and monthly statistics.

The SpeedUp SmartWatch also can be used to remotely control music as well as for voice recording.
