Back in June we told you about the Moment Smartwatch that was scheduled to hit Kickstarter at the end of the month. There are only a couple of weeks left in the campaign, and we thought it was time to check back in on the funkiest smartwatch around…

The stylish Moment smartwatch is live and we’re happy to report they’ve surpassed their funding goal of $100,000 by bringing in around $250k thus far. There’s still time left on the clock, and they’ve even added a “Black on Black” color scheme that’s only available through the campaign. Need further enticement? All reward levels now include a charging cradle for the Moment.

The minds behind the Moment smartwatch have posted the preliminary specs for the device, and it’s a lot to take in. We’ll let the bulletpoints do the talking…

  • 1.73-inch electrophoretic display   150 DPI
  • 320 x 240 resolution w/ 16 shades of gray
  • TI Tiva C Series ARM Cortex M4 processor
  • Color customizable clock face
  • None axis digital motion sensor
  • Multi-point, gesture enabled w/ 360 degree touch interface
  • 820mAhr battery
  • Rated IP67 water & dust resistant
  • Mirco-B USB connector

We didn’t have a price for the Moment smartwatch last month, but we do know and a $188 bucks will get you a Moment in black on silver or white on gold along with the black on black Kickstarter exclusive color scheme. It will be available in six different sizes (5.5” to 8.5”), but currently on uses an English keyboard and text. Needless to say, $188 is far cheaper than what we expected. The Moment was intriguing before, but now it has my full attention…
