Convenience and features have been the main focus with new wearable technology. Hands free notifications and digital keys are becoming more and more common.
What about simplicity?
On numerous occasions I’ve heard people say they would never see themselves using a touch screen watch. Simply because those tiny little touchscreens are too complex. Not to mention the pleasure of a set-it and forget-it concept in a typical wrist watch. Having to charge up your watch every few days in order have a time display isn’t very intriguing for some.
uBird believes they might have an answer with a “custom” approach
What Is uBird?
uBird is a fresh innovative company keeping simplicity in mind. The developers at uBird have found a way to give users both a simple watch and smart features. “A normal long lasting watch with an intelligent smart strap“.
The smart strap has all the sensors you might find in a smart watch or activity tracker along with a few other handy features. They call it “Unique” and can actually use it with any old watch you may already have. (It doesn’t have a screen like other smart watches) It’s a strap with sensors to record data, and sends the data to your smart phone for it to be displayed.
- Authorization Security
- Pass Card or Payments
- Phone Loss Prevention
- Activity Tracking
- Programmable NFC
- Discreet Notifications
Who Says You Can’t Teach An Old Watch New Tricks?
Unique is a powerful combination of features and a customized style
uBird is giving every customer a custom style made “Unique” just for them with over 100 combinations to choose from. The uBirds creator is already setup for people to try out the different styles. I tried it out for myself with the colorful choices you see here.
Some of the options you can choose from are: Shape, leather type, leather color, buckle, or even thread color.
@WearTechFashion Yes ;)We give our users an intelligent strap that can turn any watch into a smartwatch.
