Gameband: Smartwatch for the modern gamer
Many smartwatches allow for standard gaming right on your wrist, but there has never been such a watch that offers the best way possible to game. Introducing the Gameband from FMTwo, a smartwatch designed and engineered from the ground up that brings on-the-go wrist gaming for the modern gamer. With the Gameband, you can freely enjoy playing games right on your wrist anytime and anywhere you like. Its slew of powerful hardware and game-centric software allow for a seamless and fuss-free gaming experience on a wearable device.
Gameband is built for the ultimate on-the-go gaming on your wrist. It packs the latest and powerful hardware components previously unseen for its tiny form factor. A 1.63-inch square AMOLED display gives punchy and colorful graphics that do give justice for gaming graphics. Under the hood is a powerful quad-core Snapdragon Wear 2100 chip, the latest in wearable processors. It’s clocked at 1.2 GHz to take advantage of games that demand such level of processing power. A 400mAh battery provides ample power for your gaming sessions, while charging is made easy thanks to the reversible USB-C port. Wireless technologies like Bluetooth 4.2 and 802.11n Wi-Fi gives wireless freedom for streaming audio or loading more games from the Web. Various sensors like accelerometer, gyroscope, and ambient light sensor aid in the control of every hardware component to ensure a smooth and seamless gaming experience. Gameband’s hardware is paired with the latest Android OS, 6.0 Marshmallow, opening up literally millions of games and apps from the Google Play Store.
One key feature that sets apart Gameband from most smartwatches is the built-in microSD card slot. Managed by the PixelFurnace desktop app, the microSD slot can be managed to hold up to 256GB worth of digital content. This storage expansion slot enables its user to store not only Android games, but also put in PC-class games and play them in any computer that has PixelFurnace installed. The PixelFurnace app works similarly to the popular Steam app – however, the former offers full interoperability of PC games as long as that PC has the app installed, eliminating the need for going online or manually installing games one by one on every PC. Gameband shouts portability when it comes to gaming, and it doesn’t compromise.
Out of the box, Gameband ships with 20 mini-games to start with, including famous Atari classics like Breakout, Pong, Crystal Candles, Asteroids, and Centipede, among others. Essential apps also come pre-installed so you can use Gameband like a conventional smartwatch – calendar, contacts, phone dialer, fitness, weather, alarm with stopwatch, and a music player all come standard.
Gameband offers gamers the ability to enjoy games while on the go, while doubling the functionality of a standard smartwatch. In a nutshell, Gameband strips off the unnecessary stuff to let you focus on ultraportable gaming.
