A Montreal company is looking to profit off the growing popularity of smartwatches by creating a full featured smartwatch that makes all others look dumb.

Neptune is a Canadian company who is currently working on creating a true smartwatch that makes all the others look dumb in comparison. The Neptune Pine is not like any of the current smartwatches on the market; it's not an accessory to your smartphone, it's actually more of a smartphone compared to current lineup of smartwatches. The watch has all of the features you expect in a smartphone.

The Neptune Pine is basically a smartphone on your wrist. It features a microSIM card for voice and data, a 2.5-inch 432 x 240 pixels resolution with 202ppi (pixels per inch) capacitive touchscreen, quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE, 3G, 802.11 WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, USB 2.0, internal GPS, digital compass, heart rate monitor, 5-megapixel Recondite camera, 1Ghz single-core ARM Cortex A9 processor, 800 mAh battery providing 5 hours of talk time and 120 hours of standby, all running on Leaf OS, Neptune's modified version of Android.

The smartwatch will be available in three configurations, 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB options. It will also ship with a Bluetooth headset and a pair of headphones.

The smartwatch has an ingeniously placed USB plug on one end of the watch band that features a removable cap allowing you to plug the smartwatch directly into a USB port for charging and data transfers. Neptune claims it has designed the QWERTY keyboard on the Neptune Pine to fit the 2.5-inch display so that individual keys have the same dimensions found on Apple's iPhone, making it easy to post your status, send messages, and browse the Web all from the comfort of your wrist.

Neptune is currently taking pre-orders for the Neptune Pine and the 8GB model starts at CAD $335 and has an expected delivery date of Q3 2013.
