A gadget that promises to turn almost any regular watch into a smartwatch is being developed in the US.
The Chronos pad can light up and vibrate when your smartphone receives new messages or calls.
It is expected to cost $99 (£66) when it goes on sale in 2016, making it less expensive than an integrated smartwatch.
However the device does not have a screen or voice control as found on most fully-featured devices.
The company’s co-founder Mark Nichol said that he had focused on including the most ‘critical’ functionality for a smart watch
Chronos measures under 3mm thin and 33mm in diameter to fit on over 80% of watches sold today.
Every Chronos is equipped with:
- Stainless steel casing
- Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy integration
- Water-resistant construction
- 36 hour battery life
- Wireless charging* via conductive housing
- Haptic vibration and LED notifications
- Non-residue micro-suction adhesive backing.
Sticking the Chronos to your watch won’t require any special adhesive as they company says they’ve used some sort of “micro-suction” technology
