Smartwatches have definitely gained in popularity over the past few years but haven’t been adopted as much as some companies would like to see. Part of the reason for that, in my opinion, is the price at which most of these start at, not to mention sub-par battery life. BozGo is hoping to change that up with a smartwatch that starts at under $40USD through their Kickstarter campaign.
BozGo features a fitness tracker, sleep monitor, an interesting looking Live 3D interface, and up to 5 days of battery life per charge. Two models are available, the BozGo and the BozGo premium. The former features a largely ABS Plastic design while the premium features a stainless steel crown. Both versions have a 240x198px IPS screen and are IP67 water and dust-resistant rated.
“Our research showed that people were frustrated with the lack of features on typical activity tracker wristbands but didn’t want the cost and charging requirements of the latest big brand smartwatches,” says Morton, CEO of BozGo. “Those sentiments were what motivated our team to create a full-featured smart activity tracking watch with innovative features at the lowest price possible. With BozGo, convenient smart features and a healthy, active lifestyle is affordable for anyone. ”
Running on a custom OS, BozGo is compatible with both Android and iOS devices as well.
The BozGo has already met its all-or-nothing goal with 30 days left in the campaign. Both versions of the smartwatch — available for as low as $39USD for Super Early Bird backers — are expected to ship starting in July.
As with any crowdfunding campaign, there is a risk supporting them. We’ve recently heard about several that we’ve written about that have failed or are having issues. Our reporting on Kickstarter campaigns does not mean we support or are affiliated with them. Support at your own risk.
