    Since it has already been published and Montblanc has something similar it's gonna get difficult with a patent. But I never planned on earning money with it. It's just a hobby project

But this one looks promising. Wonder how comfortable it is. Especially when typing on a keyboard. Did you try it yourself?

    +1 on graphics. Match the time on the Fitbit with the time showing on the watch and you're good.

    That's a neat trick. I'm impressed.

    I picked up a Sony SmartBand 2 for my right wrist. No display etc means I'm not wearing a watch and a smartwatch. Hasn't arrived yet.

    Turns out it was rubbish, Sony has not updated their app in 3 years and the thing never synced to my phone correctly.

    What do you think of me wearing this Fitbit inspire on my right wrist?


    1. Ridiculous
    2. I can get away with it
    3. Doesn't look bad

    It's the thinnest tracker bracelet-style I can find.

    If anyone had any other SmartBand options for me, please say so.

    You can get a clip for the Inspire and wear it on your belt/pocket if you don’t care about the heart rate monitor

    Got the inspire HR today, Black Friday sale.

    Haven't worn it yet, charging.

    I'll wear it on my right wrist.

    Thanks for the belt clip info!
