Autonomous Android smartwatch ships

Neptune’s Android 4.1-based “Pine” smartwatch is shipping to Kickstarter backers with a dual-core Snapdragon, 2.4-inch screen, telephony, and dual cameras. The lightweight Android Wear may be the future of Android smartwatches, but those looking for a more fully featured Android experience — and who don’t mind alerting the fashion police — can choose from beefier smartwatch options.
