Modillian makes your dumb watch smart


Israeli startup Modillian has come up with a Bluetooth watchband buckle that turns your 'dumb' watch into a smart watch that will compete with the Pebble and Samsung's Galaxy Gear, and possibly look even better.

The device, which has yet to be released but will be available for crowdfunding soon, replaces the “ardillon” (pin and loop) buckle on a regular watch band, and connects your smartphone via Bluetooth. 

When a call or a text comes through to your phone, the buckle vibrates, and though you won't be able to read the message or see who's calling, you'll at least be able to know someone is.

You won't be able to control your music, read emails or take photos, but at least your $1,000 timepiece will be able to do something other than just tell the time, right?

According to A Blog To Watch, a website Modillian points to from its Facebook page, the smartphone app that supports the “smart strap” will be available only on Android at first, but an iPhone version “may come later”.

The Modillian ardillon will appear on IndieGoGo from 10 June for crowdfunding, bui t's unlikely to outsell the Pebble smartwatch, which raised over $10 million on Kickstarter.

In other smartwatch news Motorola recently announced the Moto360 smartwatch - a sexy, sleek device that looks about a thousand times more aesthetically pleasing than the Pebble (and seems more useful, too).
