A Ohio-based company called Momentum Labs has revealed its first product, the Moment Smartwatch, claiming that the device will have a 360 degree display that wraps around the case.
The company claims the device will have a 1.73 inch display, including a QWERTY keyboard and number row. The resolution of the display is 320x240 with 16 shades of grey. Inside will be a Texas Instruments Tiva C Series processor, based on the Cortex M4 design from ARM. It also has a nine-axis digital motion sensor, support for both Bluetooth and Bluetooth Smart, and a micro USB connection that can be used with an optional USB charging cradle.
The design of the Moment Smartwatch is meant to be highly stylized, so that it looks good on the wrist rather than a smaller version of a smartphone. The company claims that the device is made out of a solid piece of stainless steel that is machined down to form the watch case. They also claim its battery life should last up to 30 days on a single charge with normal use.
This smartwatch is even supposed to support hardware expansion through the use of what's being called Moment Snapware. Momentum Labs claims this will allow for expansion modules to be easily added to the device for extra features such as GPS, biometric features and more.
The company has not announced a projected price point for the Moment Smartwatch, nor which smartphone platforms it plans to support with apps. Today's announcement comes ahead of a planned fund raising campaign on Kickstarter that's slated to begin June 24 but there's no word yet on how much money Momentum Labs is looking to raise from the public.
