i’m Droid

i’m Droid is the custom-tailored version of Android that runs on the i’m Watch. i'm Droid is the only full-fledged version of Android especially made to run on a smartwatch, featuring an optimized UI for the smartwatch form factor, innovative power-saving features such as Smart Tethering, and some unique capabilities.

i'm Droid is based upon Android 1.6, slimmed down of its features which are not needed on the i’m Watch. We’ve worked on the OS of the i’m Watch adding support for advanced features not available on the underlying Android distribution, to perfectly integrate it with the i’m Watch hardware and to overcome the differences and limitations that the smartwatch form factor has on respect to the smartphones Android was designed for.
