We’ve integrated the 5ATM water resistance feature in order to allow users to take their watch into water since they can’t take their smartphones

With less than 24 hours remaining in the COOKOO (TM) watch Kickstarter campaign, ConnecteDevice has announced that 5ATM water resistance will be built into the COOKOO watch.
The announcement comes on the last day of the Kickstarter campaign that has already been backed by more than 2,425 people and has raised over $285,000 in pledges. As the amount of pledges has increased, it has made it possible to add enhanced features like water resistance.
“We’ve integrated the 5ATM water resistance feature in order to allow users to take their watch into water since they can’t take their smartphones,” said ConnecteDevice Director Peter Hauser. “This way, if you’re at the health club for a swim, you aren’t worried about missing an important call or message. We think our backers will appreciate this feature.”
The change from 3ATM to 5ATM will be possible by using a stronger mineral crystal for the casing of the watch. The enhancement makes the overall watch stronger and more durable as well, just more water resistant.
Hauser has also promised music control over smartphones using the COOKOO watch if the total pledge level crosses the $300,000 mark by the end of the Kickstarter campaign. This feature will make it possible to skip, pause and play music using buttons on the watch and a companion smartphone app that comes with each watch.
Early Backer Discounts On COOKOO Will End July 7
The 45-day COOKOO watch campaign has given Kickstarter backers the opportunity to buy a watch for $80. After the campaign ends, the retail price of the watch will be $129.95. A special limited “Kickstarter edition” watch is also available at $200. After the campaign ends, the price of the limited edition watch will increase to $249.95 to those who can verify they backed COOKOO or any other successful Kickstarter project, while supplies last. In an effort to give back to the Kickstarter community, 20% of proceeds for the Kickstarter limited edition COOKOO watch will also go to another Kickstarter campaign.
The Kickstarter campaign also offers a Bluetooth 4.0 keychain at the $23 pledge level, which will increase to $39.95 after the campaign is over.
