Carson, Calif. — New Age Electronics has signed on to be the exclusive distributor of Meta Watch's line of premium smart watches.
Meta Watch's new Meta M1 line features eight smart-watch configurations in premium finishes with a simple, connected watch face that delivers relevant information via iOS or Android smartphones.
The Meta M1 assortment includes the M1 Core, M1 Color and M1 Limited, all featuring a gull-wing lug design to enhance comfort and fit, the company said. The watches are constructed using stainless-steel cases, with stainless-steel or ballistic-nylon lugs and a variety of high-quality strap materials, including stainless-steel bracelets, leather and natural rubber, the company said. Black or Rose Gold-plated versions are also available.
The connected smart-watch platform can be customized to work with a variety of services via the Meta smartphone app. These curated notifications ensure a focus on the traditional wristwatch experience, providing information at a glance, the company said.
