Alexa-powered iMCO Watch launches in India

iMCO Watch with Cronologics OS and Alexa launches in India
iMCO Watch
Unveiled back in April 2016, this Alexa-powered wearable has changed its name from CoWatch to iMCO Watch in the meantime and is now finally available for purchase via Yerha.com.

Last year, the crowdfunded CoWatch promised to become the first Amazon Alexa-enabled smartwatch in the world. In the meantime, its name has changed to iMCO Watch, but the Alexa voice assistant functionality remained. Now, this smartwatch can be purchased in India via Yerha.com.

Powered by a custom Android-based OS named Cronologics, this smart wearable is compatible with both Android and iOS devices. Its specs and features include a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, 1 GB RAM, 8 GB internal storage, as well as multiple sensors. The 1.4-inch display has a resolution frequently used by smartwatches - 400X400 pixels. The iMCO Watch has a ceramic ring, and the rest of its case is made of stainless steel.

Although it launched later than expected, it looks like this smartwatch still managed to become the first one to integrate Amazon Alexa (after all it is the same as the CoWatch that apparently shipped to Indiegogo backers back in 2016). The iMCO Watch has a replaceable band, a customizable watch face, and can monitor the heart rate of its wearer, as well as many fitness parameters. Its price tag reads ₹14,900 INR - roughly $230 USD.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
