We have seen plenty of modular phones announced over the last few months which some dislike greatly and then we have some that do like them,these are designed to make the consumer decide what they want rather than you buy the standard product ready made for you and away you go,choice is something that does lack in the business to some extend but to be able to build your own device from the ground up could be the way forward and maybe even a standard in years to come,this is however is the first attempt to see a smartwatch step into this territory and looks promising..whats more attractive here they claim its also future-proof which will certainly make it appealing..
Check out the video below as it tells us how this will go forward..
It’s time that our smartwatches reflect our individuality. BLOCKS allows you to build a smartwatch that suits your lifestyle, with features that are customized to your needs.
The biggest benefit of BLOCKS over other smartwatches is that it is future-proof. We are forced to upgrade our phones every other year for incremental improvements. This short product cycle has been one of the major criticisms of smartwatches, because watches were always “meant to last”.
It’s simple: Why buy a whole new smartwatch when you can simply snap in a new feature? As technology evolves, so does BLOCKS. New Modules will be released continually, ensuring that you are connected with the latest tech as soon as it comes out. The future is modular.
This will be an open source project which means its not restricted which is brilliant,take the Apple watch for example or an Android watch,there is limitations,here with BLOCKS there is no limitations and the parts are hot swappable to which again is not seen on any current smartwatch,one super example we seen in the video is there is an option to swap out the battery,in the smartwatch world this is great as typically battery life stinks on your smatwatch and this is an easy simple task to do here with BLOCKS..
