TREKSTOR presents IoT Wearable with Windows
20.06.2017 - TREKSTOR presents IoT Wearable for Enterprises / Smartwatch with Windows 10 IoT Core operating system, quad-core processor, 5 MP camera, IP67, high temperature resistance and cloud access
TREKSTOR, a company based in Bensheim, Germany, has launched its new IoT Wearable SMARTAGENT, a smart solution for a wide range of industries and applications. Its optimised components, robust construction, Windows 10 IoT Core operating system and intuitive operation make the TREKSTOR SMARTAGENT an all-round solution that supports users in effectively leveraging ongoing digital change.
This new wearable offers plenty of potential for optimising communications, resource management, safety factors and enterprise efficiency. Sales staff are able to see at a glance whether a t-shirt is still in stock in different colours, or they can call for additional staff if the shop floor gets busy. In case of a machine failure in production, staff are able to initiate repairs directly and immediately. Instant access to information also saves valuable time in the hotel industry: receptionists, for instance, can easily check which team member is available most quickly to handle a customer request, or hotel staff can instantly request a mini-bar to be restocked. Communication at the push of a single button also facilitates everyday processes in hospitals.
The performance of the SMARTAGENT is powered by a Qualcomm® (APQ 8009) quad-core Cortex-A7 processor with up to 1.3 GHz clock speed and 1 GB RAM. Both data processing and communications are handled rapidly and reliably in the Internet of Things. The TREKSTOR IoT smartwatch further houses 8 GB Flash storage.
Its 1.54” display with Gorilla Glass 3 optimally combines functionality and comfort of wear, while a resolution of 320 x 320 px ensures that any content is displayed with outstanding clarity. With a size of 47 x 44 x 12 mm and a weight of only 60 g, the TREKSTOR IoT smartwatch additionally has the look and feel of a wristwatch. Ease of use in a wide range of practical applications is particularly important for catering, health care and logistics environments, but the SMARTAGENT smartwatch additionally offers superior robustness. With its IP67-rated aluminium housing, this wearable is capable of withstanding extreme temperatures (from -20 °C to +60 °C), high humidity, dust and brief immersion in water up to 1 m deep. The robust silicone wrist strap is available in a range of colours. Alternatively, the SMARTAGENT can also be used inside a silicone case to be worn around the neck. This makes it a multi-functional communications interface that can be used anywhere, whether in cold stores, on building sites or in commercial kitchens.
Communication is handled wirelessly via dual-band WLAN or Bluetooth, including NFC. The integrated lithium polymer battery has a capacity of 430 mAh; its charge status is indicated via LED lamps, among others.
The TREKSTOR SMARTAGENT can be operated via the touchscreen, which is even responsive to gloved hands, or alternatively controlled by voice via an integrated microphone. This also allows voice messages to be sent from the SMARTAGENT. A loudspeaker and powerful vibrating alert ensure that users never miss any notifications. Information is easily exchanged and retrieved in no time, and an integrated 5 Mpx camera additionally supports visual documentation. Video and photo functionalities with autofocus make it a breeze to provide colleagues with images of machine error messages at a glance, for example. The SMARTAGENT additionally features a gyroscope and tri-axis accelerometer.
Windows 10 IoT Core, which is compatible with Universal Windows application, forms the heart of the device and the basis for its wide range of professional applications. This operating system offers customisable user profiles for detailed definitions of read and write access rights and comprehensive information management. The SMARTAGENT is additionally optimally compatible with Microsoft Azure, the flexible cloud computing platform for enterprises, to ensure that any information that is required is available not only within a company’s own premises, but also at any external site, office or branch anywhere in the world, in real time.
The TREKSTOR SMARTAGENT will be available for the B2B sector from the 3rd quarter 2017 at a recommended retail price of EUR200. TREKSTOR has exhibited its innovative smartwatch at the Toronto HITEC from 26 to 29 June.
