When you’re in for sports, you are tired of wearing your Smartwatch wrist, at the same time, on the other hand wearing your precious watch? Do you want them? We provide solutions; Know Chronos Wearables. Cd-rom attached on the back of any smart watches. Although this sounds like a cheap and crazy store ads on TV, in fact is true. We will carefully observe whether the equipment is the intelligent technology, lack of the connection between the existing watch series. A small tool that can turn any watches, I mean, like a Smartwatch, for people who love sports, it is also a more convenient sport watches.
So far we have seen 2 types of smart watches; the Apple or TAG type digital device that has a LCD screen, a satellite of your smartphone, on your wrist. Then you had the Frederique Constant type, an analog looking watch with fitness tracking sensor built in the case. Chronos Wearables is a 3rd much more convenient solution.
This product was developed for those, who would like to have some smart watch features without having to sacrifice to wear their mechanical watch. Chronos is a tiny gadget (3mm thin, 33mm diameter and weights 10g) that you can stick to the back of your watch. It gathers information just like those built-in sensors in the afore mentioned smart watches. The difference is, you can detach and reattach Chronos to any other watch you have. This way you can use a different time piece every day but still have the same smart features with you. Chronos like most intelligent device is connected, means it need to install the application on your phone (Android or iOS). Synchronization with bluetooth, it will provide to you the result of your phone.
The device is quite easy to set up; download the app, enable your Bluetooth and place Chronos on its charger. It will find and connect to your phone immediately. You can download the Chronos app from the App Store or Play Store for free. Make sure your Bluetooth is turned on so it can synchronize with Chronos as often as possible.
As you can see in the picture, you have three main areas and a few more options “menu”. At the bottom of the screen, you can find these three areas, such as fitness, notification and gestures. Fitness will be the standard page to load once you launch the app. This feature offers you the usual options; steps, distance and active calories are all measured. You can switch between them by swiping left or right on the screen. The day is displayed on a 24-hour circle and a white index shows you the time. In the middle of the circle you can see which one of the three features is displayed. Under it the goal you set to yourself. Beneath the goal you find the Manage button where you can set or change your goals.
The second feature and something I found actually pretty useful is Notifications. Chronos is capable of vibrating and also lights up thanks to some built-in LEDs. The notifications section actually has two groups. The app Notifications allows you to set up and customize a notification to your apps on your phone. You choose an app from the list given by the Chronos app like Whatsapp, Facebook Messenger, eBay, Instagram and so on. Then you can decide what color and what kind of buzz you want to associate with the notification. Whenever you receive a message from Whatsapp for instance, Chronos will have one long buzz and the device lights up in blue.
The other part of the Notifications is Contact Notifications. Based on the same principal as above, here you can set up custom notifications for various contacts. At the bottom of the page you see a green bar that says “Add Notification”. This is the area where you can set both App and Contact Notifications. Select personnel or after the application, you can customize the signal, then Chronos would automatically saved and displayed in the list.
The third feature is again something that many users will enjoy. It is a clever and actually very cool little add-on that turns your watch into a remote control. Basically with Chronos Wearables attached to the back of your watch you can control certain things on your phone by tapping on the crystal or the crown. You can mute your phone if you have an incoming call. Just tap the crystal twice. Same goes for the media player, if it’s in your pocket but you need to skip to the next song, tap the crown three times. Or if you only want to pause music, tap the crown twice. Control your phone’s camera by tapping the crystal twice. Last but not least Gestures allows you to find your phone if you misplaced it. Just tap the crystal repeatedly and the phone stars to ring.
If you tap the top left corner of the app where the menu bar is placed a side tap opens up. Here you can set a few other attributes. You can change the brightness of the light or turn it off completely. If you missed the watch or just click Chronos Fin Chronos stars and equipment buzzing and the lights flashing, until you stop it in the application. You can check your Chronos battery, see if there are still some juice.
I’m not a one-watch guy, like many of you. So as much as I love these horological smart watches out there they are not meant for me. While you will never see me wearing an Apple Watch, Chronos is something I can imagine myself using on the long run. The iPhone can measure some of the same attributes Chronos can. But the phone is not that accurate. Chronos Wearables is non-magnetic, water resistant so technically you can attach it to any watch and take it anywhere you go. It is not visible under the watch at all. I tried it with sports and dress watches and it never bothered me. On the contrary, I didn’t even recognize I was already wearing it under my watch and started to look for the Chronos device in my office.
What else should you know?
The device is full of electricity takes about two days. The charger for USB connection, Chronos can charge the battery when connected to a watch. This is obvious, but it is worth mentioning that although the fitness data stored in the device, connect to the application of mobile phone display notice or gestures only work in the mobile phone is connected to the equipment.
