Chronos can vibrate and flash for whatever notifications you choose, and it can also track your steps. It’s got a 36 hour battery life, which is certainly not bad. And it’s only 3mm thin.
The lights can also be turned off, in case a person doesn’t want their wrist flashing all the time, but Luke Fromowitz, Chronos’ CTO, claims that this is actually something people are fond of, especially people with high-end watches. “They love it. They love the lights,” he says.
At $99 it seems like a pretty good deal, for those who don’t want to replace their old watch but still want the main perks of a smartwatch. Chronos is currently up for pre-order.
