A few days ago we were talking about how convincing watch lovers with a smartwatch was a difficult task. Until now, the models we have seen can have different shapes, round, square, curved ... but in the end they are simply a screen in which the needles of a clock are simulated, with greater or lesser success. They really are "small smartphones" on our wrists, without bearing any resemblance to a conventional watch. But the perfect conjunction between the watch and the latest technology exists, and has a name: Kairos.
If you look at the header image, anyone would see a watch with a modern design. Few would be those who would imagine that it is really a smart watch, a smartwatch, which offers us the same as any other existing model on the market right now. I have discovered it thanks to a forero of «Special Watches»With his blog,« Horología Prima ». The first impression is spectacular, almost love at first sight, but if you look at the specifications of the watch, the amazement is even greater. I leave you with the video and then the more detailed specifications.
The Kairos watch is automatic, that is, it is charged with the movement, it does not need a battery. Obviously the "Smartwatch" part does need a battery, and has a range of 5 and 7 days, something that they undoubtedly achieve by leaving the battery only for notifications, since the watch works on its own, an ideal solution to the problem. of the autonomy of these devices. The case is made of steel, and the crystal is sapphire. Inside we find a Japanese caliber in the cheapest model and a Swiss caliber in the most expensive, and in the smartwatch part an ARM Cortex M4 processor from Intel.
The question that many of you will ask is how do you get notifications to go above the clock? The answer is simple, with a TOLED (Transparent OLED) screen. It is a conventional screen but with 40-60% transparency, like those that we see in science fiction movies, and that really exist. This means that it is not completely transparent, but it allows a more than adequate display of the watch.
The other question that remains is about its price. Obviously it is not a cheap item, but right now they are still in a very early stage has a discount of up to 50%, with a starting price of $ 549. There are several models available, with different finishes and mechanisms, reaching their price up to $ 1249. Once released to the public, their prices will double. They are obviously compatible with iOS, Android and Windows Phone. Do you dare to book one? You can do it in the Official Site.
