Omate

Omate’s vision is to connect the world through a wearable experience. How? By offering fashionable wearable devices at affordable prices. This wearables startup has already received a lot of attention by the likes of the NY Times. Based in Shenzhen, China, the concept was initially funded by a Kickstarter campaign. “Some smartwatches are just saying, ‘We’re putting a white strap on the watch and now it’s a smartwatch for women,”’ Mr. Le Pen, founder & CEO said in NY Times interview. “We had the feeling this was the wrong approach”.
