Neptune Suite is the name of a new smartwatch, but this time around, the device is looking to redefine computing.
Unlike other smartwatch that need pairing with other smart gadgets, mainly smartphones, to deliver advanced functions, the Neptune Hub is meant to be a standalone computer that can offer a variety of features and, most interestingly, share its smarts with accessories that can be turned into smartphones and tablets.
The Neptune Hub is the core component of the Neptune Suite, packing a 2.4-inch touchscreen display, 1.8GHz quad-core processor, 64GB of RAM, 3G and LTE support (nano-SIM), Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth and NFC.
When more screen real estate is needed, the Neptune Hub can be paired with additional, specialized, accessories, including a 5-inch HD Pocket Screen that instantly becomes a smartphone when in proximity of the Hub. The device also has front-facing and rear camers. To top it all, the Neptune Headset is a wireless pair of headphones, that also works as a pendant by snapping together magnetically the buds and even works as a charger cord. Finally, there’s an HDMI dongle called Neptune Dongle, that brings all the action to the big screen TV
Now, it’s just a matter of funding and proving that there’s a market for such a novel experiment in computing.
