It would make sense if they plan to have different capacity batteries, but it only comes with 450mAh (versus Omate 600mAh). And even if you could use a thicker battery, that smartwatch is enormous to begin with (didn't engadget mentioned 20mm?). I don't see anything special about it, it looks very thick and bulky, open back makes it vulnerable, and the price tag of $450 when similar smartphone-watches cost $200?!? They must be smoking the same thing as I'm Watch

That is basically a Glorified ZGPAX - It's running the exact same 4.0.4 ICS operation system as ZGAPX.

differences:
Who knows the actual processor speed of this exetech watch, but it's also a mediatek device like the zgpax, so it's probably the dual core 1Ghz
No mention of ram
Less storage only 2GB vs 4GB (zgpax)
MUCH more bulkier looking

The functionality and specification looks at lot like the EC309 TIGON SmartWatch-SmartPhone, except that the latter can be bought for roughly half the price.

It seriously looks like they're going to sell this backless. I mean, look at the battery, it's got all the markings the back plate usually would have. Imagine how much fun you'd have if you got water in there and that battery shorted out right on your wrist =P

It's actually being sold at their homepage: http://exetech.tictail.com/

It's 349. I find that as a tasteless joke. What a ripoff.

I am certain it will sell, just not to whom.
