The TrueSmart+ is powered by MediaTek MT6572M dual core processor at 1GHz. The watch has 1GB RAM and 8GB Rom. It has a media player too. Spotify, Facebook, Runtastic, phone, calendar, messaging will be among the apps supported.        

The watch comes with 600 mAh battery and in stand by the watch needs 8mA. It comes with a microphone, quarty or azerty keyboard support, loud speaker, sim card slot, GPS antenna and a curved capacitive touch screen.  This is not bad for $169. It is expected that the pre-orders will ship in November.


The runner up, TrueSmart-I sells for $149, has the same by MediaTek MT6572M 1GHz processor and same modem capabilities but it comes with Android 4.4, 240x240 display and 5 megapixel front facing camera support. The camera can record video at 720P @ 30 FPS.
