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.
