New week, new hybrid products. A new start-up from Switzerland has developed Moskito, a smartwatch that doubles as a bike computer. Curious? I bet! #objectmagic
Moskito looks like an analog watch, only it features the usual functions we expect from a smartwatch and can be mounted on your bike to keep track of speed and distance. Indeed, you can pop out the watch face and put it on the special handlebar mount it comes with. Once there, the watch hands will show current speed and total distance instead of pointing the hour. You can also opt for the chronograph mode that can tell you for how long you cycled.
That is, if you decide to back up the project on Kickstarter. A small warning – Moskito is pretty expensive. For a watch that indicates missed calls, texts and app notifications, besides keeping track of your cycling progress, CHF 535 ($524) is a lot. By the way, that’s the cheapest option with a fabric strap, aluminum case, and mineral glass.
If you choose to back it up, Moskito promises 6-24 months battery life and the option to choose a device with km or mph, in black or white.
