It’s intended to incorporate consistently with conventional watch ties, offering the highlights of an associated watch, however without upsetting the feel of your adored mechanical watch.

Smart Rolex Watch
Will the Smart Buckle make changes over? It appears to be somewhat of an abnormal blend to wear one of these with a Rolex, however on the off chance that you totally should follow each progression you take, it surely beats wearing a Fitbit or other awkward contraption which degrades the rich look of the Rolex on a wrist. It appears to be genuinely incomprehensible now that Rolex could at any point present a “associated” watch of its own, however who’s to say what could occur in 10, 20 or even 40 years’ time? Rolex is broadly known for their advancement, and on the off chance that they can sort out an approach to offer it as a component without impinging on their mechanical legacy, it could very well happen someday. Do you think this novel Kickstarter mission will be a success?
