Omate is teasing a new smartwatch for September, and it looks like a metal body version of the current OmateTrueSmart. Omate's original design was something more friendly, with its rounded edges, big buttons, and a silicon strap. This new Omate X teaser, it looks like something designed to take on the Pebble Steel, with a brushed metal casing and leather strap.
There's not much more to say about this more grown-up version of the Omate, except for its price: $129. If that price holds true, the Omate X would be drastically undercutting the Pebble Steel (itself $249). Heck, it undercuts the older plastic-bodied Pebble too. Omate will offer early orderers an additionally discount, bringing the price down to $99 in the first five days with the coupon code of "LUTETIA".
Do you think Omate can deliver on such a promise: a metal-bodied smartwatch at an affordable price? We'll find out more soon, we suppose.
