Smartwatches are internet-connected watches that can let you do everything from viewing messages at a glance to ordering a pizza with a single tap. But not everyone needs a watch with a heart rate monitor, NFC, or GPS… and maybe some people want less common features like a flashlight, blood glucose monitor, or camera.
So the developers of the BLOCKS smartwatch took a modular approach: the watch itself has all the basic features you’d expect including a touchscreen display and the ability to pair with your phone to connect to the internet and display notifications.
But the wrist strap is made of modules that can house features like extra batteries, GPS receivers, and more.
I spoke with BLOCKS co-founder Serge Didenko for this episode of the LPX Show.
