Com1 takes to Indiegogo crowdfunding to launch metal-clad Android Wear smartwatch

Com1 is looking to launch its new square-faced, metal-clad Android Wear watch, and the company is looking towards consumers to help fund the project. Launching on Indiegogo, pricing right now starts at $125 and goes up to $170 depending on if you want an aluminum or stainless steel housing as well as watch strap configurations.

The square-shaped watch looks like a mix between a machined unibody MacBook design meshed with LG's square-shaped G Watch.

The Com1 runs the Android Wear platform and is water resistant with an IP67 rating. The watch is powered by a 1GHz XBurst-based Ingenic JZ4775 processor and comes with gyroscope, accelerometer, magnetometer, pedometer, GPS, heart rate sensor, and a pressure, humidity, and temperature sensor. Packed with a 400mAh battery, the device is rated for up to 2 days of battery life.

The device has a 1.6-inch AMOLED display with a 320 X 320 resolution for the watch face.

The developers hope to ship the Com1 watch by January if there aren't any delays.

Is this a watch that you'd be interested in? Or are you waiting for more options to hit the market before deciding on a smartwatch to purchase.
