In the world of clothing, accessories and cars, the main value is exclusivity. The best suit is the one made by your personal tailor, who will always listen to all your wishes. The best car interiors are handmade, and the most expensive cars are handcrafted.

So why the devices can`t be exclusive to their owner, not only in how they look, but also in how they function?

You can connect to the dial a set of additional modules (which will make a watch strap). Here you will find:

  • the battery;
  • Wi-Fi and Bluetooth;
  • additional battery cells;
  • fingerprint scanner module;
  • gesture control module;
  • the SIM card block;
  • GPS;
  • NFC-sensor;
  • Haptic-module;
  • LED Flash and a programmable button;
  • additional flash-memory and other stuff.

Manufacturers have done a video presentation showing how a smartwatch operates, but the developers mentioned that it is not the final design of the mechanism, and that by the moment when the smartwatch will be available for masses, there might be some changes.
