Glance: turn any watch into a smartwatch

glance

Smartwatches are a new thing, and some people are not sure of the idea of having one yet. Or maybe they just don’t want to ditch their current watch for one. Well now you don’t have to, with a device called Glance that’s currently being funded on Kickstarter.

Glance is a device that slips right underneath your current watch and has a small OLED screen that gives you notifications from your phone at a glance. The dveice has a 3D motion detector, 4.0 Bluetooth and a notification light as well. Glance is waterproof up to 5 meters so you don’t ever have to worry about being in the rain with it, or even swimming for that matter. It has a week long battery life and comes in three different sizes.

The device is made out of aluminum which is really nice, and can show you things like caller ID, text messages and more and even lets you respond to them with a button. It even has a leather band to wear if you currently do not have a watch and would like to use it as a stand alone watch.

Glance is a pretty cool idea for those who don’t want to fork over hundreds for a high-tech smartwatch and like their current watch. I, for one will be keeping an eye on this device while it’s in development and funded over at Kickstarter. Check it out here
