Stopping by the FCC is one way that a product positions itself to soon become available for the consumer market, and next up is the BLOCKS modular smartwatch. When we first announced the BLOCKS smartwatch, we said that it would have 3G/4G connectivity (AT&T, to be more specific), run Android Lollipop (full-blown Android, not Android Wear), and have a circular design in line with current smartwatch trends. It was destined to go on sale in May 2016, but for some reason or other, that didn't happen.
Over half a year later, we were able to provide more details about the BLOCKS watch, with it having a circular AMOLED display with a 400 x 400p screen resolution, Snapdragon 2100 Wear processor, water and dust resistance, and a Gorilla Glass panel for durability (we don't know if the panel will be Gorilla Glass SR+ for wearables or not, unfortunately) all while being available for pre-order. We do know that the modular smartwatch will have a 300mAh battery, but you can add an additional 95mAh by way of the module slot.
Well, now, we're back to announce that the BLOCKS smartwatch, designed by UK company BLOCKS, has stopped by the FCC to get US approval. What this means is that at some point in the near future, the BLOCKS modular smartwatch will go on sale in the US. There are a string of photos, some that are added below, but you can see all BLOCKS photos at this link.
BLOCKS has said that it will allow four modules to come along with the $330 price tag. Add the additional 2 remaining modules and you have a hefty price tag of $411.You can still pre-order now, but the BLOCKS modular smartwatch won't ship until December 2016. It's only three months away, so head on over to BLOCKS and place your order.
