Agent Smart Watch: Developer-Friendly Device Promises Lots of Innovation

Like the Pebble, the Agent is the product of a successful ($1mm raised) Kickstarter project.

First shipments were originally scheduled for December, 2013, but that has slipped into the March-April 2014 timeframe according to several backers on Agent’s Kickstarter board.

SDK Will Launch With Device

One of the unique things about Agent is the company’s dedication to providing powerful SDKs (app development toolkits) for app developers.

By releasing a .NET compatible SDK along with the watch, Agent should make it easier for app developers to offer lots of innovative apps for the device, and do this much faster than we’ve seen with others – except perhaps for the Pebble, who is also known for their open and developer-friendly platform.

Features

The weather-resistant Agent smart watch is similar to the Pebble Smartwatch in terms of features, too. It will use an ultra-low-power black and white display for long battery life. Unlike the Pebble, however, the Agent will work with Windows smart phones and comes with a wireless charging station (photo above), which is pretty cool.

The Agent will come with built-in apps for weather and fitness, but the company is clearly betting that most app innovation will come from its developer community.

The Agent comes with the following features:

  • compatible with iOS, Android 2.3+ and Windows Phone 8 phones
  • 1.28-inch low-power black and white display
  • motion & light sensors
  • Qi wireless charging station
  • running and weather apps
  • water resistant
  • 7-day battery life (30 day standby)

    I’m sure any AGENT smartwatches can’t be shipped in 2015.

    The first timeline was:
    June-September 2013 – Order parts for backer rewards and watchcase molds
    (See Kickstarter page)

    Then creaters re-scheduled:
    May 15 2014 – backlight molds complete
    (See update #18)

    And now:
    July 16 2014 – still stopping at molds work.
    (See update #21)

    I think they are hiding more bad things.
