(OTCQB: XCLL) (OTCBB: XCLL) ("Xcel" or the "Company"), a leading wearable computing device development and marketing company, is pleased to announce its Companion Solution, the first "always on" cloud-connected smartwatch system with software applications specifically focused on monitoring loved ones and private/public security forces.
The Companion Solution expands the market opportunity for Xcel's revolutionary smartwatch by incorporating a complete cloud-connected system enabling the smartwatch to always be connected to Xcel's national cloud computer network offering 24/7 services to the user. The innovative Companion application software targets two large and lucrative markets that Xcel has consistently been working to meet the needs of.
1. Children and Elderly: The Companion Solution will offer real-time monitoring of children and the elderly by combining Xcel's national cloud network, innovative smartwatch and advanced location based technologies into the world's most advanced two-way, real-time/all-the-time monitoring system. This solution offers peace of mind because one can always be alerted whenever a love one needs assistance simply by wearing the smartwatch.
2. Private and Public Security Force: The Companion Solution enables essential monitoring and communications for the extensive security workforce population, both private and public. It is a "Dick Tracey" smartwatch application allowing for direct two-way communications with remote security forces anywhere and anytime.
The CCwatch, initially recognized for being China's first smartwatch with a Mandarin language voice command system, is the core technology of the Companion Solution. As an Android-based smartwatch, the CCwatch has all the features of a high-end Android smartphone, including 2G/3G data connectivity, a 1.3GHz dual core processor, 1.54'' TFT display, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and NFC connectivity, Audio Speaker & Microphone, and a 5Mpixel camera. As an integral part of the Companion Solution, the CCWatch is a standalone wearable computer allowing the user to stay connected at all times.
Ron Strauss, Executive Chairman of the Board of XcelMobility, Inc., stated, "Successful wearable computing devices need to solve real problems. Our Companion Solution wraps our CCwatch around what we believe to be the largest applications for smartwatch devices, monitoring of loved ones and security communications. Together with our partners, Mapworld China and China Unicom, we are providing a total solution for tracking and monitoring applications."
