Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant is no longer stuck inside of speaker or a television set. A company named iMCO announced the CoWatch on Monday, the first smartwatch to embed Amazon Alexa onto your wrist.
The CoWatch will work with Android and iOS and provides much of the functionality we expect from wearables today, including the ability to provide notifications from a smartphone and to track activity, such as footsteps and your heart rate. Additionally, the device features a small 400 x 400-pixel Super AMOLED display, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, a 1.2GHz processor and up to 32 hours of battery life. The real charm is the Amazon Alexa support, however, which will provide weather information, traffic data, support for controlling items connected to your smart home and everything else Amazon Alexa offers.
The $159 smartwatch, which is making its debut on Indiegogo, is expected to begin shipping sometime in June. Folks who miss the Indiegogo campaign can buy the watch when it hits retail in June for $279.
