Australian Electronics retailer Millennius has entered the wearables market, offering pre-sales of the Millennius SmartQ smartwatch – a watch running Android 4.3.
Running what seems to be a full version of Android, the SmartQ watch has a 1.54″ 240×240 resolution capacative display which is powered by a 1GHz low-power processor that they claim is specifically designed for wearable devices, to that end they’ve included a seemingly tiny 300mAh battery. The 1GHz CPU is backed up with 512MB RAM and 4GB of on-board storage and has WiFi 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity.
The SmartQ watch comes with IPX7 certification – which basically means that the watch has no dust resistance but is protected against the effect of immersion in water in depths between 15cm and 1m.
The Millennius SmartQ seems to be offering a number of functions that other smartwatches offer including receiving notifications from your phone and the ability to reject phone calls. As well as notifications, the watch appears to have calendar, music and other applications like WeChat and voice recorder built-in and can receive weather and news notifications as well.
There seems to have been a little interest in the Smart Q watch over on XDA-Developers where it seems to have shown up in around October last year.
The watch is currently available for pre-order at this stage, with Millennius listing the shipping date as January 31st, it’s available in 3 colours – Black, Red and Blue. If you’re interested in this head on over to the Millennius website and pre-order now.
