Just as we revealed a couple of days ago, Alcatel One Touch has just unveiled its latest wearable at CES 2015, known simply as the Watch. The highlight of this smartwatch is that it doesn’t run Android Wear, but instead a custom OS designed specifically for wearables. This essentially means that the device is compatible with both Android (4.3 and above) and iPhones (iOS 7 and higher).
The pricing of the Alcatel One Touch Watch has been set at a measly $150, which makes it a very attractive offering, especially when compared to other wearables in the market. As is obvious from first glance, the wearable comes with a round watch face and is very similar to the LG G Watch R in form.
From a specs standpoint, the device has a 1.22 inch display, a ST Micro ST429 processor, Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, IP67 certified water and dust resistance and a 210 mAh battery inside. One of the straps of the smartwatch contains a male USB plug which can be slotted into the computer or an AC adapter of your choice. This eliminates the need to look for a separate cable to charge the device.
Overall, the Alcatel One Touch Watch is certainly a welcome addition to the crowded smartwatch market and we hope to get more details on the launch over the coming weeks.
