Meta Watch outs iOS, Android Bluetooth 4.0 watch dev kits

Bluetooth 4 added to MetaWatch dev kit for iPhone 4s connectivity

Meta Watch has officially released a new smartwatch development system with Bluetooth 4.0, capable of integrating with both iOS and Android devices. A previous beta was limited to Android only. In iOS, an app pushes basic notifications to the watch for things like calls and messages. Developers have access to an API, though, which will let their own apps push virtually any information.

The AU2001 (white) and AU2004 (black) both have 96x96 LCD reflective screens and are 3 ATM water resistant. Compatible with the iPhone 4S, third-generation iPad and most Android 2.3+ phones, each dev unit also sports a 3-axis accelerometer, vibration, and ambient light-sensing functions.

Meta Watch was bought out from Fossil -- its original creators -- by an investment group in September last year. Since then, though, the concept has gained competition in the form of the Pebble smartwatch project on Kickstarter.

Both development watches are on the MetaWatch website and the Ti eStore for $200.
