Based on an existing watch body that's used by other manufacturers, the device will have internals picked by Pine64 as well as custom specifications. The smartwatch will use the Nordic nRF52832 chip and will run the FreeRTOS operating system. The PineTime watch has a zinc alloy + plastic body, a 20mm wristband, and a heart-rate monitor. It will come with a charging dock and promises multiple days of battery life.
Pine64 stresses that this is just a side project, secondary to the development of the Pinebook Pro and PinePhone. There's no word about an estimated arrival date, nor is the company taking money via a pre-order page.
Since there were questions regarding the body of the watch; yes, the watch body exists and is used by other manufacturers. We decide the internals + and customize the specs. Actual unit in picture below. Hope this clears things up. pic.twitter.com/DUiO6Ww8rI— PINE64 (@thepine64) 14 september 2019
