“Gnomio” Windows Phone 8 based watch Coming Soon?

December 9, 2012 2 Comments

A team in Moscow has embarked on the mission of bringing the Windows Phone UI that we all know and love to a stylish yet useful “smartwatch” titled the “Gnomio”. Made exclusively for the Windows Phone 8 platform, Gnomio watches will connect via Bluetooth to the Windows Phone 8 of your choice, notifying you through soft vibration about incoming calls, emails and messages. The team is currently asking for funding on the crowd sourcing website Indiegogo.com.Below are a few features that Gnomio will have when completed:

  • Quick access to the incoming information – you can leave your smartphone with a dim sound on a table, in a bag, in your over clothes and don’t hear the call while Gnomio watches doesn’t have this disadvantage. With Gnomio to stay in touch is easy – Gnomio reminds you through soft vibration about incoming calls, SMS, emails without disturbing others by sound signals
  • You keep staying in touch, but your hands are absolutely free and you don’t get distracted with constant search for smartphone

Functions embedded applications Gnomio

  • Notification of incoming and missed calls
  • SMS and email notification
  • Facebook and Twitter messages
  • Calendar reminders, timer
  • Weather
  • The player controls
  • Reminders of low battery charge smartphone
  • Search feature phone

No, unfortunately the watch will not run the full Windows Phone 8 OS, but will be made with Windows Embedded Compact 7.Its been designed to connect to Windows Phone 8 and will include an ARM-based processor with a clock speed of 270 MHz. Head over to Indiegogo, a site similar to Kickstarter to learn more and to contribute to their ambitious $100,000 goal. A word of caution to the wise. It does appear that the developers have yet to create and sell a visible product, so until we see a video of this concept actually working we will remain just a bit skeptical..My hopes are that Microsoft invest into this project and in the end creates a similar device that comes prepackaged with every phone! How cool would that be? We know..VERY….MBGW
