The SpeedUp SmartWatch is iOS and Android compatible, and only costs S$199
Wearable technology is all the rage now and SpeedUp has just announced that its new smart watch, which was first seen earlier this year at the Mobile World Congress 2014, is finally available here in Singapore.
Although it may not be the first smart watch to support both iOS and Android, SpeedUp is quick to point that it is the first smart watch with a full-color multi-touch LCD display to do so.
The SpeedUp SmartWatch will be able to do typical smart watch things such as provide incoming calls and text notifications as well as alerts from your favorite social media services, calendar and weather information, and more.
SpeedUp also says that the watch can track your fitness, providing a count of steps taken, distance covered and calories burned. And although the company did not specify exactly how the watch is able to do this, we presume this means that the SpeedUp Smartwatch has a built-in accelerometer with pedometer functions.
And like the recently reviewed Jawbone Up24 activity tracker, the SpeedUp SmartWatch can also track your overall sleep time and sleep quality.
Finally, the SpeedUp SmartWatch is also IP57 water and dust resistant, which means a little water and dust won't hurt it.
The SpeedUp SmartWatch is available now for S$199, which makes it slightly more affordable than the popular Pebble smart watch.
