The ability of hybrid timepieces to combine fashion and function is one of their most defining characteristics. They appeal to the segment of the population that values traditional style yet values contemporary functionality.
There are a plethora of different hybrids from which to select in today’s market. However, it appears that things will only get easier from here on out. A recent analysis makes the projection that during the next four years, shipments of such devices would account for more than half of all smartwatches.
It is getting harder to differentiate oneself from the other businesses in an industry that is getting more saturated. The Gligo E-Ink Smartwatch is designed with the intention of standing out from the crowd by incorporating a number of features that are wholly original.
The timepiece is equipped with an E-ink screen, as the name of the product could imply. When compared to a conventional liquid crystal display, this one is much simpler to read. Because electronic ink mimics the appearance of printed text, reading it is less taxing on the visual system, and it does not reflect light. In addition to that, it has a very low impact on the environment.
This takes us to the second distinguishing characteristic of the product. The watch can run for an astonishing two years on a single charge and has a display time of 180 days using e-ink technology. That is without a doubt the longest battery life that we have encountered on any hybrid or wristwatch to this point.
The mechanism of the gizmo consists of quartz and is designed with a two-pin configuration. The clock, date, and several notification symbols are displayed on the e-ink screen. In addition to that, there is some basic health monitoring and fitness tracking included, including monitoring of your heart rate.
The chic and understated appearance of GLIGO makes it suitable for any event. The watch comes with a casing made of 316L stainless steel that is capable of withstanding depths of up to 30 metres. Because of this, you will no longer need to worry about removing your watch before getting into the shower, swimming, or working up a good sweat.
In addition to everything else, the cost of the gadget is set at 99 dollars. It is hardly surprising that GLIGO has attracted such a large amount of attention on Indiegogo. The fundraising effort has already exceeded its goal by a factor of 15 with just four days remaining to go.
