Dreaming about a smartwatch but still reluctant to give up on your classical piece? There might be a way around it. A Smart Buckle that gives any traditional wristwatch digital powers #objectmagic
Instead of deciding which smartwatch would go best with your daily routine and what are you going to do with that symbolic wristwatch gift, you can now opt for a smart… buckle. A simple piece that helps your ordinary watch track activity, sleep, calories, steps. Everything you’d expect from a fitness tracker, in fact, but from your traditional watch.
All you have to do to update the classic piece if to replace the buckle that came with it. Then, the accessory sends all the info to a companion app, which is available for Android and iOS. All the data is stored in the cloud and you can sync it with either Apple Health of Google Fit.
Best of all, the Smart Buckle is water resistant and dust proof so you don’t have to be particularly cautious with it. Unlike other trackers, you can use it for about 10 hours daily and recharge it in an hour.
If that sounds like a great compromise (instead of permanently ditching your elegant wristwatch for a rubber clad one), head over to Kickstarter to get one for an early-bird price of $39. Shipping starts in August.
