Omate to Launch 4G Wearables Powered by Qualcomm

Omate announces its first 4G enabled smartwatch, the Omate 4G Video Call – O4VC – wearable platform powered by Qualcomm® Snapdragon Wear 2100 system-on-chip (SoC).

The O4VC is a low power 4G always-on standalone wearable and GPS tracker packaged in a robust IP67 case and is ideal for companies looking for connected services tailored to their industries.

WaaS: Wearable-as-a-Service
Omate has strategically invested in IoT for smart connected wearables to offer tailored services to companies evolving in the kids, elderly and enterprise segments. Modules powered by Omate are used in wearable devices enhancing the lifestyle of many family members from kids to seniors; from fashionistas to lone workers.

High quality engine
Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.’s Snapdragon Wear 2100 is engineered to support the most important features in next generation wearable devices – always-on connectivity, low power usage, smart sensing, and smaller size. This processor is 30 percent smaller than previous-generation wearable processors from Qualcomm Technologies, supporting thinner and sleeker product designs.

Always-on connectivity for tailored services
The Snapdragon Wear 2100 powered wearable is designed to deliver an always connected experience with the latest 4G/3G modem, integrated GNSS, low power Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth®.

The O4VC can last up to three days on a single charge and triangulates location using GPS, 4G cellular networks and Wi-Fi hotspots, for a more accurate positioning.

The O4VC will be available in June 2017 in the US for $149 exclusively through Omate partners; associated services will be accessible through several mobile network operators and insurance companies starting September 2017.

Omate will be showing the O4VC at Pepcom’s MobileFocus from 7:00 to 10:00 pm on Monday, Feb. 27, at the Palau de Congressos de Catalunya, adjacent to the Fairmont Rey Juan Carlos hotel in Barcelona.
