Exetech was founded in 2012 with the goal of designing, building and marketing a "stand alone" Smart Watch- Phone based on the Android operating system.
The first Smart Watch-Phone by Exetech, the "XS -3", was officially presented at the SMAU exhibition in Milan in October 2013, and soon after, at the WEB-SUMMIT in Dublin (where EXETECH has been selected among the most innovative startups worldwide). The XS-3 is on the market since December 2013. The first production batch has been delivered in just one week!
XS-4: THE NEW CHALLENGE by EXETECH
In the ICT market there is never the possibility to rest, and so, since January 2014, Exetech is already working upon the new model, the "XS-4", that will come out in 2014.
The "XS-4" will be an evolution of the XS-3 characterized by a smoother design and by a great deal of amazing new technical solutions. The aim of EXETECH, with no doubts, is to create, with the XS-4, a device with the potential to become a new landmark in the growing market of the Smart Watches.
Design - by Synthesis Design
Compared with the XS-3, the XS-4 is a result of an evolution process aimed to obtain smoother surfaces without changing too much the initial "concept". The touch screen surface will become slightly curved, and the cover of the touch screen will be made in a single "glass looking" piece. Furthermore, the XS-4 will be WATER PROOF IP 67 certified.
IP67 "waterproof" through nanocoating technology
For making the XS-3 IP67 waterproof we will adopt the nanocoating technology. The internal and external surfaces of the device and of the battery will be coated by an ultrathin fluoroplymer coating, so water and aother liquids will be repelled. Exetech is the first manufacturer of Smart Watches introducing this solution.
Operating System and Software
The XS-4 will boast Android 4.4. When it comes to the Operating System, the evolution process in EXETECH is a continuous challenge: the owners of the XS-3 will take advantage of the new releases, and, in the same way, the future owner of the XS-4 will be enabled to upgrade to the new versions. The research carried on by the EXETECH engineers is aimed to improve the ergonomy of the navigation system, to reduce the battery consumption and to introduce new features and new design in the screenshots. The XS-4 will surely be equipped with the brand new choice of built-in "Exetech Chronographs". The software will include vocal commands.
XS-4 will upgrade to 4G
XS-4 will be equipped with an addictional 800 mah spare battery. The target is to obtain 48 hours of standby time and at least 15 hours with intense use of GPS and data connection.
Solar charging system
XS-4 will be equipped with a technology that will transforms the screen into a solar panel that can generate its own electricity. The solar cells act as light receptors and transforms that light into electricity. This technology will help to recharge the battery and will improve the standby time.
The touch screen of the XS-4 will be covered by a layer of solar cells especially designed for the SmartWatch application.
The camera of the XS-4 will be 5.0 MP

XS-4 Prototype - 1st stage - 4/6/14
Find here below the first picture of the 1st stage prototype of the XS-4. We have already used the new touch screen with curved surface (you can appreciate its remarkable luminosity!), and the new processor MTK6592. We are currently carrying on the debugging of the version 4.2.2 of Android (intermediate step before skipping to the final version for the XS-4 that will be Android 4.4) Unfortunately our funding campaign is still so slow....we hope that this news will help people to give us some more trust!
Note: the materials and the colours of this prototype are not definitive..it's made with prototyping techniques!
The aim of the fundraising will be to finance the manufacturing of the new dies that are necessary to produce the XS-4. Furthermore, the fundraising will help to produce the first batch of XS-4. We can warrant the delivery of the XS-4 within November 2014.
Analytics Cloud Service NEW - IF WE REACH AT LEAST 20,000 EUROS
If we reach at least 20.000 Euros, the XS-4 smart watch will be powered by a smart data and analytics cloud service. The cloud platform will gather XS-4 usage data and transform it into user analytics and insights – a unique and key value-add compared to other market offerings. The XS-4 would include a much richer application experience that would provide the users with personalized usage analytics, inform them on how they are benefitting from the XS-4 smart watch, and enable them to share their data with other users. Moreover, users will be able to share the XS-4 smart watch with friends and family and still enjoy a personalized experience.
