If the current range of available smartwatches don’t light your fire, then the new Blocks modular smartwatch which has already raised over $1 million via Kickstarter thanks to over 3600 backers, might be worth more investigation.
The Blocks smartwatch is very unique and is being marketed as the world’s very first modular smartwatch allowing you to customise the features using small modules that link together to create the watches strap.
Watch the video below to learn more about this unique modular smartwatch which has been created by Blocks Wearables based in London. They explain a little more about the inspiration and design of their unique smartwatch and its modules.
BLOCKS is the world’s first modular smartwatch. The watchface, or Core as we like to call it, is fully functional on its own, and has all the features you would expect from a smartwatch. But it’s the strap that is the most amazing thing about BLOCKS. It is made of several links, or Modules, each of which have their own functions. You can choose the Modules you want and connect them together to build a smartwatch unique to you.
From smartphones to wearables, current technologies are one-size-fits-all. Though many different sensors can be embedded in a wearable device, space is always the limiting factor. This leads to technology companies deciding the features that are right for everyone, and forces us to compromise on what we actually want from our devices as individuals.
We’re done with compromise. We’re over one-size-fits-all. It’s time that our smartwatches reflect our individuality. BLOCKS gives you the power to build a smartwatch that suits your lifestyle, with features that are customized to your needs. Just choose the modules you want and connect them together in seconds.
