Introducing BLOCKS – The world’s first modular smartwatch

Introducing BLOCKS – The world’s first modular smartwatch

Not too long ago we were all buzzing about modular smartphones which could very well be the future of most of our hand held devices. When we talk about modular devices, Google’s Project Ara and LG’s latest flagship phone of 2016, the LG G5, would be among the first names that come to mind. If these aren’t enough to make a few jaws drop, we’ve got another exciting entrant in the modular devices family – BLOCKS which is the world’s first modular smartwatch. What’s most exciting about these modular devices is the option to customize them as per your own needs. Same goes for the smartwatch, which offers a wide variety of options for you to choose from. The modules include: Extra Battery Heart Rate GPS Adventure (Module has a 3-in-1 sensor which combines digital humidity, pressure and temperature sensors in one). Flashlight Programmable button   Four of the aforementioned modules come with the watch and the good thing is you get to choose all four of them. The BLOCKS smartwatch is expected to release in October this year and will be retailing for $330 with $11 in shipping costs if you’re in the US and $15 for the rest of the world (Pre-orders have already started). Additional modules can also be purchased separately which will cost you an extra $35 per piece. We really like the idea of customizing your watch according to your own needs and even though Motorola offer a similar option with the 2ndgeneration Moto 360, BLOCKS offers something uniquely different. If you’re on the lookout to get a new smartwatch running on Android Wear anytime soon, then you probably should wait a few more months. The BLOCKS smartwatch features a 1.39” full circular 400 x 400 Gorilla Glass AMOLED Round Display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon APQ8009w processor, 512MB RAM, a 300 mAh battery, 4GB of storage, a stainless steel casing, microphone, WIFI 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1 (BLE) and runs on the latest version of Android (Wear) Marshmallow. The watch is also fully compatible with iOS devices which will surely make Apple users quite happy. Even though the market for smartwatches hasn’t quite gone mainstream as anticipated, the modular technology might just be able to change this norm and in doing so, re-define the future of how smartwatches can be utilized. Let us know your thoughts on this in the comments below. Cheers! BLOCKS Smarwatch Tech Specs at a Glance 1.39″ AMOLED 400×400 Display 300mAh battery Stainless Steel casing Qualcomm Snapdragon APQ8009w processor 512MB RAM 4GB Storage Microphone WIFI 802.11 b/g/n Bluetooth 4.1 (BLE) G Sens + Gyro E-Compass Android Marshmallow Source:...

Google and Levi’s to launch the Commuter X Jacquard Smart Jacket

There is no denying the fact that Google and innovation go hand in hand. With that said, the world’s largest online search giants have yet again come up with something different this time around as well. The recently concluded Google I/O is an annual platform that showcases what the future (and Google) holds in store for us. Google’s Advanced Technology and Projects division (ATAP) made a bunch of cool announcements including the much awaited Project Ara (arriving in 2017), Project Soli and Project Jacquard, ATAP’s touch – sensitive fabric project. Speaking at the event, Google’s Technical Program lead Dr. Ivan Poupyrev, who is also currently heading the ATAP division announced a new collaboration with Levi’s to launch their famous Commuter jacket with the new technology built inside. Using sensors weaved into the fabric, Levi’s Commuter x Jacquard by Google Trucker Jacket connects to a user’s phone and allows them to interact with it by touching a specific portion of the sleeve. Functions include answering/rejecting calls, as well as integration with services like Spotify, Google Maps and Strava. Google also plans on releasing APIs that will open the gateway for more developers in the future. As far as the jacket’s durability is concerned, Poupyrev says you can handle it like any other jacket; you just need to make sure to remove the Bluetooth chip on the sleeve’s button loop before washing. Levi’s Commuter X jacket with Project Jacquard is expected to launch their beta this fall while the worldwide launch will be sometime in spring 2017. We’ll keep you guys posted on any further developments. So what do you guys think about this new “smart” fashion apparel? Would it be another addition to your...
