This Smart Watch Moves All Its Intelligence To The Band

For watch collectors looking to go technical, Indiegogo’s latest initiative Origin is a new take on a smart watch that fits the brains of the device in the strap instead of the face. By placing the ‘smart strap’ on one of your old collectibles, you’ll be able to upgrade your once-analog timepiece to something smarter, without having to sacrifice your personal style.

With the strap, wearers will acquire the same functionality native to conventional smartwatches, including the ability to reject phone calls, control music being played through their phones, locate their lost mobile device, track their activity and so forth. Another plus of the device is that it winds itself, so even though it taps the digital world it doesn’t need to be charged. The band runs 20mm wide along the wrist, is available in five main looks and one special edition colorway, and sold for an early bird special of $199 USD with an anticipated shipment of May 2017.
