[CES2015] Blocks Wearables Unveiled
Startup company, Blocks Wearables debuted and showed off its modular smartwatch as it took part at the “Make It Wearable” contest. Blocks set up and shop at the Intel booth during CES 2015.
The untitled smartwatch showed basic functions but its unique selling point of innovation was the customisable modules that are actually links of the wearable’s band. With these modules, users can have extra batteries, SIM Cards and wireless payments. The list is endless of what these modules could do for consumer personal experience.
The more interesting part of the Blocks smartwatch is that it is built on Samsung’s Tizen operating system. There are plans to support Android, Windows Phone and iOS though. The device is however, right now just a mere prototype but the company is looking to launch a Kickstarter somewhere this year.
Pricing wise, the smartwatch should cost USD$150 (MYR533). If users decide to get extra modules, each should be about USD$40 (MYR142). Take a look at the video above and let us know what you think about the smartwatch in the comment section below.
