Omate on CES 2019 announces the O6S, a Sigfox connected smartwatch to protect senior citizens, and O6 with 4G connectivity. O6S will have first services deployment available in Q2 2019 through UnaBiz, the exclusive Sigfox operator in Singapore and Taiwan.

Omate has selected Soracom to provide global 4G/LTE connectivity for the new Omate 06 smartwatch. The companies are partnering to integrate the Soracom Air eSIM into an Android-powered smartwatch that offers “peace-of-mind” service with such features as pre-paid annual service, video calls and push-button emergency calling, and support for health monitoring and medical alert services. Omate O6 customers can enjoy one-year of mobile connectivity built-in to the device cost and easy service renewal in future years.

"We are excited to work with Soracom to offer global connectivity to our partners. The Omate O6 is designed to meet the needs of always connected experience and is optimized for small size, low power, smart sensing to meet the demanding needs of the kid and elderly segments.” Says Laurent Le Pen, Founder & CEO at Omate.

The Omate O6 smartwatch runs with a 4G LTE modem and can last up to three days on a single charge. The device triangulates a location using GPS, 4G cellular networks and Wi-Fi hotspots, for a more accurate positioning. The Omate O6S smartwatch was designed with the goal of protecting senior citizens with first services. With 30 day battery life, this Sigfox connected smartwatch, operates over a Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN), making it extremely energy efficient, while remaining affordable. It will be made available for orders in August 2019 from Unabiz in Taiwan and Singapore.
