The Kreyos Meteor smartwatch is a meteor that fits on your wrist

Kreyos Meteor - 1

Over the last year or so, the fabled Dick Tracy or smartwatch has gone from comic books and Sci-Fi fantasy to a working reality. With several products on the market and more rumored to be on the way, the Kreyos Meteor is aiming to knock its competitors out of orbit. The Kreyos Meteor, although similar to some of the products on the market, sets to distinguish itself from its competitors by adding some unique features that most of its competitors don’t have, such as:

  • 6-Axis Accelerometer, Gyrometer (3-axis accelerometer, 3-axis gyrometer)
  • Voice control
  • iOS Siri control
  • Built-in speaker and mic
  • Built-in activity tracker
  • Changeable accessories

These are just some of the unique features listed on the Kreyos Meteor site.

The Kreos Meteor is a current indiegogo project that has already surpassed their $100,000 funding goal by 7 times. Contributions start at $29 and run to $11,000 with a $129 contribution getting you a Kreyos Meteor watch with a men’s or women’s black watchband. Delivery of the Meteor watch is scheduled for November 2013.

    The Meteor is indeed tempting. But my kickstarted Pebble is good-enough until the “Real” iWatch appears ;)

    Correction, it only has a 3 axis accelerometer and a gyrometer… not a 6 axis. http://thetechsideoffit.com/2013/07/23/kreyos-meteor-preview/

    @Chris thanks for the information I am in the process of having this corrected. Just to clarify, I took the information from the comparisons on the webpage. I did not understand that it was 3 axis accelerometer and 3 axis gyrometer for a total of 6 axis.

    A friend of mine writes reviews and let me play around with his “review model” (he’s not the active type, unlike me…he’s got more of the brains)
    This watch worked without any problems for the 60 miles of running I logged, and for my bike this watch also did the trick. I originally ran with my Nike+ SportsWatch, but my biggest problem with it was that it was geared only towards running. When I would take my Nike watch cycling I experienced major problems (Inaccurate distances,
    speeds, etc). When I took this watch cycling it appeared to be much more
    accurate and was nearly as useful as my bike computer (Garmin Edge
    800). I’m considering selling my bike computer and replacing it with the one
    I just ordered. Granted it can’t do everything my bike computer can,
    but then again, I never really used my bike computer to its full
    capacity, so this would be more than sufficient.

    There is also a possibility of it recording data about how you swim and would be the perfect training partner for a triathlete.

    I decided to pre-order one, and I would recommend it to anyone who has
    even just a mild interest in fitness (or wants to start a new fitness
    program). If you order it now, there is a plethora of perks/savings you can take advantage of. http://igg.me/at/kreyos/x/4074286

    @Shiv thanks for the information. Did you happen to take the Kreyos swimming? I am interested in how it faired.

    @Larry Geisz
    No, I wish I did.
    I only found out about the possible swim feature recently via their feedback forum (http://support.kreyos.com/forums/198604-general/suggestions/4131704-swim-tracking)

    Someone suggested they add this idea, so it’s not implemented yet. However, if the kreyos team doesn’t develop one, I’m sure someone will put their programming skills to use when they release the software/programming/I-don’t-really-know-what-its-called-but-I-know-that-programmers-can-create-software-and-upload-it-for-public-use (look towards to bottom for SDK on the igg site)
