Designed in France and engineered in the United States, COOKOO is the world’s first designer watch that combines an analogue movement with a connected digital display. Its design has gained global recognition as a Platinum winner in the international A’ Design Awards.
Complementing Filipinos’ social networking and digital lifestyle, COOKOO connects with the iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod Touch, iPad 3rd and 4th generation, iPad Mini, and the latest Android smartphones. It requires no charging as it uses a button-cell battery with extra-long life.
Unlike competitive products, the COOKOO watch does not require regular recharging. It is designed to work with the COOKOO app, which is available for free on the App Store, to connect with and maximise certain features of your smartphone using Bluetooth technology.
The COOKOO watch has multiple features that are well suited to Filipinos, who are highly engaged users of social networking and the digital lifestyle. Some of these features include:
- A camera trigger for taking group pictures from a distance
- A remote control for the music application
- Different icons on the watch face notify the user of the status’ such as incoming calls, missed calls, email, new Facebook and Twitter messages, calendar reminders, low battery, and alarm clock
- An alarm activated by the watch to detect a misplaced device
- Tag locations on the COOKOO app’s map via drop pin
The COOKOO watches are available in black, silver, white, pink, blue, and limited edition green. They come in a matching coloured case creatively designed as a mini birdhouse. Environmentally conscious consumers will be happy that the packaging can be reused for this purpose. One can easily change the standard-sized soft silicon watch straps for different colours and designs as desired. The device is user friendly and the command button is customisable to fit one’s preferences.
COOKOO is now available in the Philippines for PHP 6,500 with a one-year warranty. You can check it out at Power Mac Center, Mobile 1, Switch, A.Shop, iStudio, Gadgets in Style, Vertex, Parafreaq Hobby Shop, ava.ph, and pormada.com.
