Echo is the first running watch that utilises smartphone fitness apps to their full potential by wirelessly connecting them to your wrist. With real-time fitness data streaming directly from your smartphone to the watch display and the ability to remotely control connected apps, Echo keeps you informed and in control during any run.
Echo is an extension of your smartphone, simultaneously displaying fitness data, notifications and achievements that display on your smartphone. Using Bluetooth Smart to wirelessly connect with smartphones, Echo shows elapsed time, distance and other fitness metrics at a glance. Echo gives you control over a variety of smartphone functions including start, stop or lap on your fitness app, and next song, play and pause on your music stream or playlist.
It's the first smart watch designed for running with a ruggedised design and water-resistance that can withstand adverse conditions. When you're not running, Echo is an everyday watch. A replaceable battery means there's no charging. Echo is always ready to go.
Real time fitness data stream
Fitness data, like pace and distance, streams from your app to Echo in real-time. Now, you can actually see the data that's been hiding on your smartphone.
With an open platform, Echo works with your favourite fitness app today and the new fitness apps of tomorrow. Apps are constantly updating their features and Echo is designed to keep pace and evolve.
App Messages and Alerts
Apps control the experience on Echo, including the messages it displays. These could be encouraging words from a friend, instructions for your next interval, or notification of an achievement.
