I want to buy a Omate racer. I am using a iPhone 5s and a pebble.. I am happy with my pebble but it lacks in the looks. The racer looks cool but nowhere on the world wide web is a review about functionality or how the notifications look like on the iPhone. (just hands on or amateur review)not to start about al the negativity about Omate haha..

Can anybody tell me there experience with the racer and the iPhone 5s.
Does whatapp alert work? does is fully show? music playback? ect

Omate racer update: i have had the racer for a month and it does everything it is supposed to. It pairs with my iphone and even buzzes my mapquests turn by turn. My improvement suggestion are the following.

I want a compass, altimeter and a dozen more watch face choices including analog faces.

Omate,,, step up please.

Wouldn't it have been good if +Daniel Ortiz​ could have put "thanks for you patience, we appreciate" on the screen as the firmware is flashed :)

Apparently there are still people that don't know what a shocking outfit Omate are.

Please show them this YouTube video as a warning.

Finally got this piece of junk back from warranty repair for "charging error" after about 2 months. Took it straight out of the box, put it on charge and bam "charging error"..... Bitterly bitterly disappointed! Expected big things from this watch. My advice, buy a Pebble! Omate X is rubbish!

Don't waste your money on an Omate. The watch is rubbish the back up service is rubbish! If you're looking for an actual smart watch this is what you want.... https://getpebble.com/pebble_steel

Hey!
Why don't you release the Kitkat 4.4 source?
So many bugs would be fixed! But without working sensors the firmware is incomplete!
Hell make an arrangement with mediatek, or make an official kitkat release by your own!

Firmware/Kernel  - 
 
Gifts from Mars

For the adventurous that own an X, Lutetia, Racer, or Roma.  The specs of the DM360 may not be a 100% match but what's important is the tool itself. I have not tested it, but the tool should allow for firmware dumps/backups.

If Omate makes the firmware public like Zeaplus has,  or a flashable backup can be made, consider the development door unlocked.

Side note
 +Laurent Le Pen  sent me more than parts. He sent me one of the working CES prototypes of the Roma. He did not have to do this, so  this public thank you is in order. I also try to review any device I'm given, so one will be posted later. It is running Alpha firmware and a prototype so that will be taken into consideration.

Please do not consider this as me returning to development, or some sort of official endorsement. It's not. I'm very comfortable being back in the traditional watch world, enjoying my collection, and making custom watches for friends and family.

+Laurent Le Pen Email sent. The change was registered with all the major carriers so it should have been forwarded. Carrier QOS is abysmal where I used to live so who knows what happened.

+Rob Rowald Thanks for the offer but no thanks. I did a recasing on one. With the PCB and battery being larger than the display, I never could get it to look right. Not being able to separate the TSP from the crystal didn't help either.

I'm very interested in the performance of the transreflective screen, could someone who's got one answer these specific questions:

1) is it full color and full function all the time, or does have different "modes" that only show monochrome and/or limit the functions in certain modes?

2) How does it look in full sunlight? How do the colors look in full sunlight versus indoor/backlit?

Could someone post a short video showing the performance of the display indoor & outdoor under normal use?

Thanks!

Thanks Mark & Bob, what disadvantages are there, if any, compared to a normal backlit LCD display? Could either of you post a short video showing the screen indoor/outdoor? Thanks!

The omate racer does everything it is supposed to do and the build quality is fine. I just want a few more faces. Also, the apps seem to be android market based and my iphone wont go there. Any ideas?

You must use a phone which is at least Android 4.3 or above or iOS7 or above. Some OEM also use BT chipset that do not support some BT profiles.
