If you like the idea of the features and functionality a smartwatch can provide when linked to your smartphone, but enjoy your traditional watch too much to make the switch.
You might be interested in a new watch strap called Unique, which has been created to transform any ordinary watch into a smartwatch.
View the video below to see how the addition of the Unique strap to any standard watch, makes it possible to connect your watch to a companion application providing a wealth of features and notification options. Its developers explain more :
Unique is a smartwatch strap that lets you turn any watch into a smartwatch. Its cleverly-concealed electronics give you all the features you’d expect from a smartwatch and fitness tracker – without having to swap the watch you love for a modern-looking smartwatch.
And that’s fantastic news for all of us who have expensive or treasured traditional watches. Smartwatches are incredibly useful, and popular with millions, but in a world where your choice of watch says so much about your taste and social status, you’d hardly want to swap your Rolex or your Patek Philippe for an Apple Watch just to have the smartwatch functionality.
That’s why we’ve invented Unique – a luxury, hand-made and innovative watch strap that replaces the strap on your own watch and gives you the smartwatch features you’d like without having to trade in your beautiful watch. In other words, you can have the best of both worlds: the looks of the watch you love, plus the fantastic functionality of the latest smartwatches.
