The Martian Notifier was designed for the fashion- and cost-conscious consumer who wants a notification-enabled smartwatch that also brings an industry-first feature "Smart Notification" filter and customized vibration capabilities.

Martian Notifier's Smart Notifications App allows three unique levels of notification support: it first lets you filter the notification types you want sent to the watch, so you receive only those that are most important to you. It secondly allows customized vibration patterns for each type of alert, letting you know if you've just received, for example, an email, text message or news alert without even looking at your watch, let alone your phone. Finally, you can recall the most recent message with just a tap of the watch face, or scroll through multiple past notifications for a quick review. 

The Martian Notifier line features an integrated OLED readout that delivers real-time alerts and notifications from the convenience of your wrist including Caller ID, Calendar, Weather, texts, email (POP or IMAP), Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, favorite games, bank alerts, fitness stats, news headlines, and all other alerts your smartphone allows.

In addition, Martian Notifier offers several convenience-oriented features: a touch of a Notifier button activates your smartphone's speakerphone, enabling hundreds of voice commands to control music, check a sports score, get directions, search the web, create a reminder or appointment, and more. You can also decline an incoming call, set silent vibrating alarms that only you will sense, get a once-an-hour tickler to remind you to take a break, turn on an LED light to see in a dark room, control your phone's camera shutter, and more.

"The outpouring of support that the Martian Notifier has received for design, function and price from press, fans and customers has been amazing and has continued over into this exciting announcement today," said Stan Kinsey, President of Martian Watches. "Since our launch, we've learned that people want their wearable technology, but they also want it to look stylish. We are thrilled to make that a reality."

Compatibility, Price & Availability

With the Martian Notifier line, iPhone users of iOS 7 or higher now have the ability to receive every notification that is shown in the iPhone's Notification Center. Android users can receive notifications from any app that is installed on their phone and provides a push notification. In addition, the Martian App and Watch menus will support English, Spanish, French, German, Japanese, Chinese and Korean. Texts and emails will appear on the watch in almost any language in which they are sent (Western languages and most Asian languages).

The Martian Notifier Watch line will be available at major retailers nationwide for $129 this summer -- just in time for graduation and Father's Day gift buying.
