Another smartwatch project is trying to get funded on Indiegogo and this time it’s hoping a blend of Android and a dash of Windows Phone are what people want. The A.I. Watch is looking to raise $100,000 by November 9, with backers of $179 or more getting a full Android phone on their wrist for $100 under the expected retail price.

The device runs on Android 4.0.4, but it’s hard not to see the nod to Microsoft’s mobile platform as well: The main home screen looks just like Windows Phone, complete with rows of different sized tiles:

It’s also easy to see that the A.I. Watch is filled with features and radios: It can be a used as a standalone speakerphone thanks to the micro SIM support. The device runs on an unspecified dual-core processor and has access to the Google Play store for apps. I’m not sold that traditional smartphone apps are well-suited for the small 1.54-inch color display (240 x 240 resolution) but you can see that some do work in the product demo video:


The integrated voice support can help work around some text input challenges on the small screen. But pushing a smartphone experience to the wrist — clearly the approach of the A.I. Watch — isn’t ideal. Still, for those who want an Android phone on their wrist, there’s an option out there!
