@PINE64 Oh yes,that looks so great 😍 👍 Will it also support apps and internet connection?That would be really cool.I had a cheap and proprietary smartwatch based on Java ME which had internet but supported no apps unfortunately and it's defective now so I'm looking for a new one currently...



It will support apps, and will have primary communication to a local device over Bluetooth (up to 5.0 + LE). WiFi is possible as the radio is software programmable, but it does not have a cellular modem.

@PINE64 That's great 👍 Bluetooth for the connection should be enough if it works with Bluetooth Tethering and I don't need a special app.In this case it would also work with my Blackberry Passport phone and that would be great as I'm planning to wait some time before buying a new phone again.
