The Origin smartwatch is a classic self-winding analog watch, others call it automatic, mechanical. Looking at the smartwatch, well it’s a typical wrist watch, a classic looking analog watch.
But what makes the Origin smartwatch smart, is hidden inside its watch strap. Connected to your smartphone via Bluetooth the watch strap is loaded with different features such as notifications, activity tracking, calendar reminders and music control. It is supported by an app “Grayton app” that is compatible with both iOS and Android.
I think the interchangeable strap is a good idea from Grayton, the Origin is a mechanical watch meaning it doesn’t need charging or battery replacement, the watch strap is USB powered with 10 day battery life, but if it run out of juice, you will still be able to use your watch as a regular wrist watch which is great. If you need to have notifications and other smart features, just charge again the smartwatch with its flip-out USB port at the end of the strap, charging takes 2 hours.
Additional features of the smartwatch ncludes activity tracking, loss prevention, call rejection, phone notifications and phone finder. The smartwatch has been successfully funded in Kickstarter with a $25,000 goal, if you want grab the early bird promo that starts at $199 USD + Shipping.
