Omate Chooses Fleksy Keyboard to Bring Typing to the World's First Smartwatch 2.0: TrueSmart

San Francisco, CA, Nov 14, 2013 ( via COMTEX) -- Omate, the innovative computing wearable design company, will be launching the world's first smartwatch 2.0 on December 2013. The Kickstarter-funded, water-resistant standalone smartwatch is the first to work both as a companion and independently, as well as provide the type of rich experiences typically found with larger devices.

Fleksy, the future text input company, was selected by Omate to be the first keyboard to ever be preinstalled on a smartwatch. Fleksy will allow TrueSmart users to easily type directly from their smartwatches without utilizing their smartphones.

"Selecting Fleksy was an easy choice," says Laurent Le Pen, CEO at Omate. "Fleksy's smart text input keyboard technology enables easy typing, and its unique invisible mode is fantastic for small-screen devices. We've seen tremendous interest in the market for a truly standalone smartwatch, and Fleksy takes text input to the next level." The keyboard will be preloaded as the default on the upcoming Omate TrueSmart Alpha Developer release in supported regions.

"We are very excited to see Fleksy on Omate TrueSmart," says Ioannis Verdelis, Fleksy founder and COO. "The future of communication is on smart devices, not just smartphones, and typing is a basic feature to enable communication. Omate is a leader in the space and carving the way to creating stylish smart devices that work with no external help." As part of the keyboard software company's growth, Fleksy parent company Syntellia has renamed itself to Fleksy, reflecting the focus of the team on the award winning keyboard company. The company also recently appointed Troy Cross, former VP of Sales at Vlingo and Nuance, as VP of Business Development. With an impressive background in the field, Troy joins Fleksy to lead exciting OEM partnerships.
