    I would pay so much money for that. My problem with the Apple Watch is endless generations making your watch obsolete and eventually worthless. Straps on the other hand, unless OEM, retain little value, and are by nature upgraded when they are worn down. Nice work OP!

    The Microsoft Band would be a good match. Unfortunately it doesn't fit. Someone on Twitter already tried it.

    So... A Fitbit Zulu strap... Pretty Cool...That's actually a great idea that needs a patent. So many that like a traditional watch with the tech stuff that could be hidden in the strap.

    I experimented with an Apple Watch before. But with the Fitbit the idea finally made sense.



    I also like that Sony concept: http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2015/...rtwatch-strap/ But since it's 22mm it's never gonna fit my 21mm and 20mm watches.
