Agent smart watch slowly winding its way to the market

Way back in early 2013 we backed a kickstarter for a Windows Phone compatible smartwatch, the Agent smart watch.

I think many readers may have forgotten sending the company the money, as the device has overshot its projected delivery date by nearly a year now.

The good news however is that the team as continued to plug away at the device, and is ever so slowly inching their way to release, thought I suspect the company long since abandoned predicting when the day will be, after projecting 3 months in January 2014.

There is of course one advantage to the delay – with the roll-out of Lumia Cyan, Windows Phone 8.1 now supports Bluetooth LE and also in the latest 8.1 GDR1 update includes the underpinnings for a notification system designed for smart watches.

The Secret Agent team are currently working on the fit and finish of their watch, including the casing, straps, screws and such, and as can be seen in the picture above, has finally been able to fit the electronics inside the case.
