California Startup Monohm Seeks $250,000 on Indiegogo For Smart Pocket Watch Runcible

Runcible 1

California tech startup, Monohm, recently launched a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo to raise $250,000 for its already famous smart pocket watch, Runcible.

Runcible 4First introduced to the world at last year’s Mobile World Congress, Runcible is described as a smart pocket watch for the post-smartphone era. It features a Snapdragon 410 Quad-core processor, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, 1GB RAM, 8GB eMMC 5.0 Flash storage, Rear-facing Camera, and exposed GPIO and USB Host.

The Monohm team revealed:

“We have spent the last year designing, re-designing, and sourcing components for this initial Runcible release.  While this device isn’t yet the polished, ‘available at best buy’ kind of consumer electronic we know it will one day be, it is useful, playful, powerful and truly something new.”

Runcible 6They went on to explain that the funds from the Indiegogo campaign will be used to further polish and hone the process of creating the watches in a more sustainable, responsible way:

 “We are keeping it local.  The wood backs come from sustainably harvested trees in Mendocino County, California.  The device will be made right here in the Bay Area by people who live and work here.”

Those that back the project will receive the following rewards (which will be delivered in October 2016):

  • Runcible 2Runcible Lovelace ($499): Designed for the Aficionado, this watch offers a solid wood back that is made from local, sustainable harvested madrone wood from Mendocino County, California. 
  • Runcible Babbage ($399): Designed for the experimenter, this watch offers a durable, organic feeling back that was made from reclaimed ocean plastic fished out of the Great Pacific Plastic Island. 
  • A Visit from the Gentlemen ($5000): Co-founders of Monohm, Jason Proctor and Aubrey Anderson will hand deliver a one-of-a-kind, hand-built Runcible watch and will even take backers out for dinner. 

Since its debut, the campaign has successfully secured over $75,000 from nearly 200 backers. It is set to close on June 30th.
