The Neptune Duo is an interesting take on the wearable concept because there is a twist. The twist is that this wearable comes with a “dumb” screen to interact with when the touch screen on the bracelet isn’t quite big enough for certain things you want to do.
The Hub is the brains of the operation whereas the Pocket screen is supposed to work much like a mouse, keyboard or computer monitor. You can receive an e-mail on the Hub bracelet but the smaller screen may not be conducive to responding efficiently. All you need to do is pull out the pocket screen and use it as a keyboard to respond.
There are Pros and Cons to owning the eccentric Neptune Duo though. The first pro is that the Duo doesn’t need to be used as a combo all of the time. If the battery on the Hub dies then the Pocket screen can be used exclusively. A Con of the Duo is that carrying the two Neptune devices along with any others means that it can be a bit of a pain to juggle all of them. A huge benefit of the Neptune Duo is that fact that they don’t have any of your sensitive information on them so if one is lost you’re not out of any credit card or personal information as well.
Some of the dark matter that lies within the Hub includes: a quad-core processor, 3G/4G, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth and NFC chips. The 2.4 inch capacitive touch screen running Android Lollipop 5.0 conceals 64GB of on-board storage as well as the requisite microphone, speaker, accelerometer and gyroscope.
The Pocket screen specs are only mediocre at best and are as follows: 5 inch HD capacitive touch screen, 8MP rear facing camera and 2MP front facing camera, accelerometer and a gyroscope. Battery capacity is quite impressive with a combined total of 3800mAh, 1000mAh for the Hub and 2800mAh for the Pocket screen.
To secure the Neptune Duo you can pledge $199 now and pay the remaining $399 at the time it ships. The more you pledge, the cheaper the Duo become so if you pledge $498 now you don’t pay anything at time of shipment. For more info check out Neptune’s website here.
