We shared a tutorial how to build a music application using Koru platform on YouTube. (Click here to watch). In the end we compile for the NXP i.MX RT595 cross-over MCU and measure FPS with the built-in Performance Monitor tools. Spoiler, we run at maximum speed (Display refresh rate). With Koru you can be sure to get the maximum performance of the HW without sacrificing size or develpment simplicity.
Koru and NXP have collaborated turning the i.MX RT595 into an embedded graphics benchmark. Koru delivers consistent 60 FPS graphics performance. Send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org If you are planning to use the NXP i.MX RT595 to build wearables and we will provide you with a free evaluation kit. For examples of performance have a look at this video.

Our CEO, Christian Lindholm was moderating the Upgraded Life Festival's Main stage program.
Koru participated for the third time at Wearable Technology Show in London on 10th and 11th of March. Our CEO Christian Lindholm spoke on the wearable panel stressing the need for personal style and flair in the design of wearables. The Company’s vision video was shown to kick off the panel. The panel sparked a lively debate with the head of wearables for Swarovski Bernhard Wirtz. In the picture Koru's developer Harri Tapio is completing a successful demo.
Koru visited Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in February 2016. We were part of the Finnish delegation. KORU was meeting clients and influencers in wearables.
Koru Wearable Trends 2016, now its 4th year. Providing a overview of key trends covering Apple Watch, Android Wear, Samsung, LG, Misfit, Fitbit, Suunto and other movers and shakers.
Koru was selected among an exclusive group of software companies to showcase their state-of-the-art platform at ARM's Annual Partner Meeting in Cambridge. This global meeting brings together ARMs eco-system and influencers. Koru co-founders Christian Lindholm and Terho Niemi was showing wearable demos running on limited power hardware. The demo is smooth as silk on the Cortex M4 using STM32F469 in a 320x320 resolution. With this kind of hw and software performance builing a one week batterylife on a small wearable is completely feasible. On the picture Simon Seggar ARM CEO with Koru founders.

The article by Christian Lindholm from the November 2011 issue of Wired Magazine. There is an unwritten rule among watchmakers that if a timepiece does not run for a year on its battery, it can't be called a watch. Yet our wristwatches barely do more than tell the time. By contrast, we've learned to put our mobile phones on charge every night, while expecting near continuous innovation from them. Wristwatch innovation has been limited to sports products, and nobody ever puts their watch on charge.
