The public has validated ConnecteDevice’s approach to the smart watch – thecookoo watch is the first stylish “connected watch” that doesn’t require recharging
Kenmore, Wash.- May 30, 2012 – The cookoo watch launched on Kickstarter nearly a week ago, and has already received more than $115,000 in backer funding. We are confident that it is on its way to go well beyond its funding goal, and that we will be shipping the first stylish, wearable extension of the smartphone that you don’t need to recharge this fall.
“Smart watches are for geeks – (the) cookoo (watch) is for everyone,” says one of the over 1,300 Kickstarter backers.
What sets the cookoo watch apart is that it is, at its core, an analog watch with a connected system. Furthermore, its innovative dual battery design ensures that the three-year analog watch battery won’t drain even if the user receives thousands of notifications. Most users can expect the connected system battery to last up to a year.
With production scheduled for late October (shipping early November), the cookoowatch will be the perfect gift for connected people this holiday season. Backers of the project are assured to receive their cookoo watch in time for holiday shipping and Couples Pack backers can even include a special message for that special someone.
ConnecteDevice also announced its unique eye catching cookoo watch gift box packaging today. This packaging can be reused as a birdhouse or bird feeder reducing waste and creating a sanctuary for local songbirds.
True to its commitment to its supporters, the ConnecteDevice team even announced two new changes suggested by backers on Kickstarter. The straps will now be interchangeable, and the cookoo design includes easy access to the batteries. This means that you can customize your cookoo watch to suit your style and replace the standard batteries yourself.
About the cookoo watch
Using Bluetooth SMART wireless technology, the watch receives notifications to let you know what is happening on your phone in real time. The user will receive notifications for calls, texts, Facebook messages, calendar events and more. The corresponding icon will appear on the watch face. The cookoo watch is compatible with the latest Bluetooth SMART READY devices such as the iPhone 4S, new iPad, HTC One X, Samsung Galaxy S3, and more to come!
The cookoo watch comes with great features: it allows you to find your phone, check-in on apps like Facebook, tag your location, take group pictures, and more. It is also water resistant, and sends you a reminder when your phone or tablet battery is low.
It will come in a variety of colors: black on black, brushed stainless on black, blue on black, white on black, and green on black (special Kickstarter edition). It is expected to retail for $99.95 with blue and white color editions retailing for $129.95.
