Agent Smartwatch progressing towards production


The Agent team have posted an update on their KickStarter page on the progress of their Windows Phone compatible smart watch.

The have managed to make further design improvements, including making the straps standard and easily replaceable, have improved the power efficiency of the circuitry significantly, and worked on encrypting the data transfer between the phone and watch.

They have also verified the wireless charging circuitry and implementation, and are now close preparing limited production samples for FCC certification.

They expect a few more updates in October before transitioning to a focus on manufacturing.

It looks like those who backed the watch should still be expecting the handset by November/December, and hopefully all our handsets will support Bluetooth Low Energy by then.

See a video of the watch concept after the break.
