    I turned my Seamaster into a Fitnesstracker/Smartwatch

    Being a watch nerd and a tech writer Iíve combined my Seamaster with a Fitbit. Iím still surprised how well it fits and works.


    Hereís what it looks like:

    And hereís the whole article (only in German) I wrote about it: Die beste Smartwatch, die ich je hatte - News Digital: Gadgets & Hardware - tagesanzeiger.ch

    Did anyone come up with a similar idea or even a better one? IWC and Montblanc are building similar straps. Iíd never give up my Omegas for a Smartwatch. But I might buy a really nice and useful smart strap for them one day. Maybe even from Omega...

    Why not, if you've got time on you hands, no pun intended.

    Very impressive! I am a tech nerd myself but no Apple Watch is taking place of my Omegas. This however, a strap system with tech built in. I would definitely consider. Would love to see some purpose built examples.

    Definitely stealing this idea. I've gone through three Charge HRs. Have to be so gentle with these things - good thing there's a good warranty.

    Yes. The heart rate sensor works perfectly.
