A smartwatch that’s designed to track your heart rate, sleep patterns, and temperature will hit the market later this year, but the Meted Out smartwatch has the potential to be the most interesting thing to wear on your wrist for a while.
In an interview with TechCrunch, the company’s founder, Andrew Loomis, discussed the Metered Out smartband, the hardware, and the software behind it.
Loomas first met Andrew in 2014, when he was still a developer at Pebble.
The metered out smartwatch is meant to track a wide range of metrics, including heart rate and sleep patterns.
While most of the metrics are simple, the heart rate sensor can read up to 8,000 beats per minute, and sleep monitoring can be enabled for up to eight hours per day.
Lomas and his team took the time to create a wearable that’s smart enough to take the best of both worlds, and it looks like it might actually be worth it.
“We wanted to design a smart watch that could track everything that we care about,” Loomes said.
“I think we accomplished that in Meted out because we have all of these things that we love about wearable technology that you don’t necessarily see in a lot of watches.”
The company is calling its metered-out smartwatch the Metable, and its team says it’s a “totally functional” watch that runs on Android Wear.
It’s designed with a dual-core Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor, an 18MP camera, and 3GB of RAM.
The device has a 6,400mAh battery and can track your workouts over Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS.
The Metable has the most basic of features, but if you want something a little more advanced, you can upgrade to the Metric version.
The new device is priced at $249.99, but its $100 upgrade price means you’ll be getting the most advanced functionality.
Lombes said the company is working on a way to integrate the Metrics app, which will let users track their sleep patterns and heart rates over the phone, so they can take advantage of its heart rate monitor.
The company’s CEO, Andy Parnell, said he was inspired by the Metables “unique, flexible design” to make the Metatable more affordable.
“It was really exciting to be able to create this kind of wearable,” Parnells said.
The mtg Metable will launch in January 2018, with a price of $299.99.
