Turn Your Watch Into An Instant Smartwatch


For those who are still on the fence about purchasing a Smartwatch, Trivoly could be for you

A 3.0mm thick, disc-shaped wearable device named Trivoly, fits to the back of most regular watches and transforms it into a functional Smartwatch. With Trivoly, you no longer have to spend more for an entirely new Smartwatch that might not fit your lifestyle or wardrobe – because looking too techy is taboo when it comes to being a fashionista.

Like a Smartwatch, Trivoly will notify you via means of vibrations and LED lights of messages, social media notifications and acts as a pedometer. Aside from the basics of a Smartwatch, Trivoly gives you two other features that many do not. Firstly, control your music remotely with just a tap. Play, stop or skip to your favourite track, it pairs with music players like Sonos, Spotify and iTunes.

Secondly, it allows you to control your camera remotely from up to 7.62m (25 ft.) away! Now you can get more people into your wefie or capture some hipster oozing landscape while you look into the distance – not to mention this would also mean that your face will look slimmer.

In addition to the aforementioned features, Trivoly is hypo allergic and water resistant – so don’t bother about bringing it for a swim.

There will be two versions of the Trivoly, named Trivoly 1 and Trivoly 2. Main difference between the two would be that the Trivoly 2 has a full fitness tracking features including an optical heart rate sensor.

 

Pros

  • Battery Life – The Trivoly can last up to 4 days, which is almost twice as long as compared to a regular Smartwatch.
  • Android And iOS Compatibility – It does not matter whether you are a Samsung, Apple or Sony user, this device will pair with most Smartphones.
  • Affordability – With high-end Smartwatches like the latest TAGHeuer Connected costing US$1500, this comes in at a steal.


Cons

  • Notification Display – As this device ride on your current Smartwatch, you lose the ability to reply messages or view messages on your wrist.
  • Watch Face – So the disc-shaped Trivoly is supposedly able to fit any watch, but if you start thinking about it, it actually might not. Take smaller faced watches or irregular shaped watches like a square or rectangle one for an example. How would that fit?

 

Availability And Price

Both versions of Trivoly will start shipping in February 2016. The Trivoly 1 starts retailing for US$99 while the Trivoly 2 retails for US$129, prices exclude international shipping.
