The BLOCKS Smartwatch is the most customisable smartwatch on the market. The strap is made of interchangeable modules allowing you to transform the functionality of your device throughout the day quickly and easily. The BLOCKS store and open platform gives users the choice to create the device that's right for them
Our adjustable clasp comes with all BLOCKS packages allowing you to tighten and loosen for an optimum fit. The adjustable clasp design fits comfortably on wrist sizes between 13cm and 20cm in circumference. We ask those with larger/smaller wrist sizes to please contact us at [email protected] with a measurement of your wrist size so that we can adjust your order accordingly.
The core smartwatch has a stainless steel casting and a Gorilla Glass screen to ensure utmost durability. The modules have been engineered with premium polycarbonate with a soft touch anti-fingerprint and scratch resistant finish. The device has been designed to withstand extensive use including harsh conditions such a drops, sudden impacts and exotic climates.
We have more modules in the pipeline and will be providing a product roadmap with more information Q2 2017.
You can currently only use ‘one' Extra Battery Module at a time while wearing the device. Bear in mind you need at least 4 modules including the EBM to fit your wrist, thus we recommend you take this into consideration when purchasing.
4 modules will fit the wrist of a vast majority of people with an adjustable clasp to provide a comfortable and accurate fit. Smaller wrists may require 3 modules in some rare cases.
All orders will come with a clip on charger that connects to the charging pads, with a detachable micro-USB to USB cable. In 2017, a charging dock will be made available for sale for charging your full watch and extra battery modules separately.
It will work with both Android phones (versions 5.1 and onwards) and iPhones and (iOS 9 onwards).
