Goophone Smartwatch 3G Goes on Pre-Sale for $299.99


Goophone announces new self-sufficient smartwatch, yes a smartphone connection is not required. Now that is a statement we like, not a smartwatch like the Samsung Gear that is not only  dependant on smartphones but to a very limited Samsung selection.

The Goophone (couldn’t they think of a better name?) device sports a Windows Phone-looking display but runs Android 4.0, and features full access to Google Play. The device also doesn’t require a connection to a smartphone to make things happen. It’s completely independent, and works its magic all by itself.


The device comes with 3G and can be pre-ordered starting today in both black and white. It’s a pretty big device, as you’ll see in the video below, but you’re definitely getting a lot of functionality. The screen is a 1.54-inch 240 x 240 pixel display, or 220 ppi. The processor is a dual-core MediaTek CPU at 1.2 GHz, and it has 512 MB RAM and 4GB internal storage. The camera is 2MP, and the battery should last 48 hours of standby time.  The watch also works on GSM and WCDMA frequencies.

If you’re willing to shell out the dough for it, this smart-watch may be the best one on the market right now in terms of functionality. Check the video below.
