I Built My Own Smartwatch In A Minute

Build it up and break it down to your wrist-fancy, with the world’s first modular Smartwatch

Looks like modular is the only way to go with technology moving forward. Meet BLOCKS, a company that has invented or rather reinvented the world’s first modular Smartwatch.

By modular, we mean that it allows you to build the Smartwatch based on features you want and need - rather than a stock Smartwatch that is equipped with run-of-the-mill features that you may not require.

Modular gadgets like BLOCKS are future-proof, which is its major plus point. A simple switch of the dated module is all that is needed. Meaning, your gadget will never go out of style!

BLOCKS has modules like kinetic charging, fingerprint sensor, heart rate monitoring, and GPS just to name a few. Aside from the modules, it has similar basic features as all other Smartwatches. Take for an example, answering of phone calls, send and receive text messages, social media notifications, track your sleep and schedule. BLOCKS will also be compatible with both Android and Apple platforms, which is great because most Smartwatches in the market now only focus on one platform.

So when is it available? Well, BLOCKS is still not up for mass market sales. However, they are about to start its crowdfunding campaign within the next couple of days! So do keep a look out for them. In the meantime, check them out here.
