Neptune Pine: Smartphone in a smartwatch

While other smartwatches aim to be slim and sync itself with your smartphones, the Neptune Pine takes a different turn. For one, it is huge for a watch with its 2.5-inch display. Secondly, it is meant to actually work as a smartphone.

The $335 wearable device is equipped with a 3G radio, a 1.63GHz single-core processor, and a 320 x 240 color touch screen. It is larger than the Galaxy Gear and its 1.63-inch display.

More than being a smartwatch, the Neptune Pine is designed more as a wearable Android 4.2 Jelly Bean-powered computer rather than an actual watch. Users can even slip in their SIM cards into the back of this gadget or tethering it to their own smartphone.

While this is not the only smartwatch that works on its own, the Neptune Pine is the only one with a removable watch face. This makes it so convenient if you want to snap a photo and you do not want to bring out your smartphone. Its 5-megapixel camera is found at the rear, while a VGA camera is placed in front for video chatting. This device also comes with Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi, a speaker, microphone, a microUSB card slot, and volume buttons found along its sides.

The Neptune Pine is set to ship later this year and is available for preorder on its website.
