When it comes to smart watches, there is no denying the amount of weight the name the Apple Watch carries in the segment (even if there is some question as to how well it is selling). For me, wearing a second device (or something that completely displaces a standard watch) is just about a non-starter. When you get into things that add a phone connection to the strap (like we saw on this TokyoFlash), then the argument becomes a lot more compelling. I have a feeling that we will see more of this sort of combination, and the Javelin Dayrunner is one of the latest to come to my attention.
Love your Pebble Steel Smartwatch? Hate the fact that you are locked into the strap options that come with the device? Well, a new project on Kickstarter out of the UK, the Steel Connect, provides a simple adapter to let you use any standard 22mm strap or band.
