    What do with think of the new FC e-strap mod??

    I'm curious to see what people's thoughts are on the Baselworld release frederique Constant dropped (though I know it's actually a branded MMT device). It looks quite promising for those who may be interested in tracking without sacrificing our horological love. I guess my concern would be wanting to track all the time and having to switch it from strap to strap. Thoughts?

    I don't know. However, it appears these devices are currently limited to
    activity tracking. Reading various smart watch (and Apple Watch) threads
    it seems the application that drives the value for most smart watch users
    on the forum is notification of incoming voice calls and text messages.

    Those users who report about activity tracking appear to be interested in
    measuring heart rate, distance traveled, and speed. It appears the e-strap
    is not offering those features. Though small, the e-strap is probably behind
    the market.


    Thanks,

    Looks like one wouldn't have to wear both a Fitbit and traditional watch as this serves the same function.

    Well, apart from not being able to sync with the Fitbit platform and get all the social sharing benefits (compare with friends and family, get health insurance incentives, etc)...

    229USD has got to be a joke. Either that or they think traditional watch wearers are insanely desperate.

    Montblanc also has an e-strap that does tracking and notifications.

    It's an early version of something they'll likely need to refine and develop. But, conceptually, I think it's a good idea.
