Like other smart watches, you can switch from one watchface to another with the press of a button so that it matches your style or your mood. You can also download additional watchfaces through your smartphone.

AGENT smart watch connects to your smartphone using Bluetooth which enables you to control your music library and also acts as a wrist-based display for smartphone apps. The watch displays incoming calls and notifications. And it vibrates to let you know when you’ve accidentally left your phone behind.

AGENT uses a new 1.28″ Sharp Memory Display which combines the best aspects of both technologies: fast animations; high clarity outdoor-readable display; and ultra-low (~20uA) power consumption.
