We have spotted a new mysterious smartwatch... or should we call it a smartband adapter? The "Wotch" claims to Transform your watch into a smartwatch by building right into the band, by the looks of it from the video it certainly looks promising. There aren't too many details available, with no Kickstarter campaign and any tech coverage except what is seen posted on the video in the background of their website: http://www.wotch.de
WOTCH - Transform your watch into a smart device
We have some up close screenshots of this unique device:
A Small Touch Screen Built into a Watch Band
The tiny touch screen appears to be built in to the clasp of the band. The screen appears to be an e-paper display and from the size of the device we can assume it will most likely have basic functionality -- notifications, vibrate, etc. It is unknown if the device will include a heart rate monitor but we think this is unlikely.
However we can determine that the device may sport a touchscreen, considering the swiping movements seen multiple times in the video. GIFs below:
Another version, with an even smaller screen?
We are also shown 2 different variations in the video which include another that appears with a much smaller screen built into a metal clasp.
