Alexa-powered iMCO Watch launches in India
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.
