Victorinox Announces The INOX Cybertool, A Clip-On Smartwatch

If it is advisable flip your dumb watch right into a smartwatch and don’t thoughts a parasitic ring of plastic hooked up to your analog timepiece, then Victorinox and Acer have you ever coated. The Cybertool presents a number of timezone shows, exercise monitoring, and name and message notifications that seem on the ring across the watch. A Assist perform transmits your present GPS coordinates to a pre-set telephone recipient.

The Cybertool (which borrows its identify from a dot-com period pocket knife) is designed to work with Victorinox’s INOX watches though there is perhaps some solution to retrofit it onto one other equally sized watch (don’t maintain your breath.)

It is going to value about $225 when it goes on sale and the INOX watch prices about $600. It’s a intelligent addition to the sensible-dumb-watch canon though I doubt it’s going to see a lot curiosity outdoors of some die-arduous Victorinoxers. It’s a enjoyable concept, although, and the primary time I’ve seen a low value model of this type of add on, the primary from Linde Werdelin which was intelligent and in addition wildly costly. You’ll be able to learn a bit extra concerning the new parasite right here.
