A new smartwatch that can make calls, send texts, access web content and do GPS navigation, independently of a smartphone, has achieved its modest Kickstarter funding goal.
The Omate TrueSmart, which is more watchphone than smartwatch, reached its $100,000 (about £64,000, AU$111,000) funding goal in one day and is now sitting pretty at $202,643 (about $130,000, AU$225,000) with 28 days remaining.
It's easy to see why it's proved popular. As well as the cellular and 3G tech, the Truesmart has a built in 5-megapixel camera, 4GB of internal storage, a dual-core 1.3GHz processor and 4GB of internal storage.
The IP67 water-resistant (suitable for swimming) device boasts has a 1.5-inch touchscreen, runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and can also be controlled via gestures and voice.
The TrueSmart, which can be secured from $179 (around £115, AU$199), is also being touted as a companion device for smartphones thanks to the Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity.
With so much cash in the bank so early the device is now - barring any of the Kickstarter horror stories of recent months - guaranteed to go into production.
It's the second high profile smartwatch to get its start on the popular crowdsourcing site. The now-on-sale Pebble earned an astonishing $10 million from backers who believed in the project.
With such a positive response in 24 hours, New York-based, South Korean company could be in line for a similar windfall.
The TrueSmart's arrival also arrives at a pivotal time for the wearable devices with Samsung primed to launch its rumoured Galaxy Gear watch at its Unpacked Event on Sept. 4.
