Initially expected to make its big entrance this spring and presented for the first time as a prototype model at the Consumer Electronics Show event this January, the long-rumored Meta M1 smartwatch now becomes available. You may pre-order the gadget in a variety of finishing and wristbands via the Meta Watch online store with shipping starting in September.
Meta Watch launches a stylish smartwatch
Meta Watch is a pioneer in the smartwatch sector that now tries to take advantage of the gaining on popularity smartwatches with introducing the new Meta M1, which appears to be a perfect combination of high quality materials, sophisticated design and functionality that will definitely fill the niche of high-tech but lacking class smartwatches.
The stylish smartwatch has been designed by the formerly identified with Vertu and Nokia industrial designer Frank Nuovo. The famous designer created unique strap pivot points that allow the watch to fit to your wrist, making wearing it as comfortable as wearing a traditional watch. Moving on, the square body of the watch houses monochrome display (just as in case of Pebble and Pebble Steel) that is said to be more easily readable in sunlight, which, when true, will be a great improvement in comparison to the Meta’s previous timepieces.
The Meta M1 design combines stainless steel cases with ballistic nylon or stainless steel lugs and a huge variety of superior quality wristbands materials, including: genuine leather, natural rubber and even stainless steel bracelet. Apparenty, the manufacturer did their best to customize its products to the tastes of their future users, giving them the opportunity to choose among the wide range of the watches’ variations.
You may pick among three M1 series: Core, Color and Limited. When the M1 Core is the most basic series with stainless steel cases and rubber, leather or stainless straps, the M1 Colors include two more variant of straps which are red rubber and white leather, the most sophisticated is the M1 Limited series with a rose gold plated case and a blue crocodile leather strap, and the most expensive model embracing a black stainless steel case and a black stainless steel bracelet priced at $449. Simultaneously, the variety of choice means the variety of prices, which in the case of the M1 ranges from $249 to $449.
Furthermore, the M1 watch supports both Android and iOS enabling its users to customize the face and notification according to their needs. But, lacking the voice communication and extended Android Wear apps, the M1 is still much more a traditional watch using smart technology than a packed to the full with high-tech specs modern smartwatch.
Does the classy but decent in terms of specs M1 have any chances in rivalry with cutting edge Samsung or Google smartwatches? Even if it won’t gain as much attention as the more tech advanced smartwatches, it will have its customers among fashion-conscious, who may consider it a unique boutique watch with few additional smart functions.
If you want to have the M1 on your own, you may purchase it any moment in pre-order via Meta website. The choice is so huge that you will definitely find the option that suits your style the best. But, even if you buy it today you will have to wait a while until you put your hands on it, so remember to arm yourself in patience since the first batch of the pre-ordered watches begins its shipping in September.
