  1. ^ Omate Sep 6: work will start on 4.3 only after we have finished the current work on 4.2 and have the TrueSmart shipped - that's the priority now. No schedule has been planned yet for 4.3, there is a commitment to update. TrueSmart does have OTA (Over-The-Air) update function, so updating would be a simple process.

    Omate Sep 6: First of all it is a dual core, not a quad core in lots of phones these days. The processor uses the latest 28nm wafer, which is very low power and low heat (heat is actually wasted power). Secondly, the PCB is upwards against the screen, away from the backplate/cover. The battery is next to the cover which does not heat up during usage.

    Omate Sep 12:
    We are negotiating with Google to make TrueSmart the first Google certified smartwatch, if the negotiations does not have a successful outcome in time for shipment, we will still provide a easy to use way for users to access play store - we are careful about the wording of this so as not to affect the negotiations, but internally we know and we made the decision to provide access to play apps store. We may have gotten over-excited with the announcement, perhaps we shouldn't have. Hope you will understand that it is a very important decision for us and users as well. In the long run, it's good for Google to support smartwatch screen sizes (more than 95% of the apps are working without any re-work). We would like to work with Google in moving Smartwatches ahead as a legitimate screensize. It is not only TrueSmart, it is all smartwatches and we come in friendly terms. If we are unable to come to an official agreement in time, we are still confident we can provide access to play store even for the average user (without having a complex procedure).
    Smartwatch is new. We didn't get here on a straight road, and we are also willing to move forward and talking to everyone from industry leaders, community leaders, users, developers to encourage everyone to move forward with us in Smartwatch 2.0. We hope we have community support in this issue, because it would make a huge difference if we don't even have community support on this.

    Omate Aug 25: IP67 is the "bottomline", the prototypes (variations in internal structure), we are quite certain of swimming abilities, we went with IP67 as the standard in our communication because this is 100% sure.
    TrueSmart is certainly designed for swimming. As for snorkelling, it's a yes except that we are concerned if a user would take an incidental dive deeper and to how deep. Diving is certainly out of the question. Variations of the internal structure is currently going through tests incl. water-resistance and we would know soon how deep that would be.
