Kickstarter campaign launched for new MetaWatch Strata
Editor: Andrew Flegg
One of your editors is very keen on the existing MetaWatch and using this with Javier S. Pedro's daemon on Harmattan. So it's sensible he's excited by the new KickStarter project for the latest model: Strata, is a smart sportwatch designed to compliment your smartphone and give you Hands Freedom™. With a Bluetooth 4.0 connection to your iPhone 4s or Android smartphone, you can check messages, see who’s calling, control music, view weather, and more, all from your wrist. Of course, our interest is predicated on the Bluetooth protocol being documented and usable from other systems. They say "all of our software is open sourced [...] so everyone can see how easy it is to connect from an app on a smartphone or any other device."
