Turn your watch into a smartwatch with the Glance attachment

Not feeling any of the current smartwatches on the market or just satisfied with your basic watch? Glance can turn any watch into a smartwatch. Kiwi Wearables, from up north in Toronto, calls Glance an accessory for your watch. It can receive notifications and be a fitness tracker by counting steps, among other things. It is a piece of aluminum that slides between your current watch and your wrist. The OLED display uses Spritz technology to show notifications a single word at a time rather than in a ticker-like manner. Apparently this makes it much easier to read what Glance is trying to display.

This is a Kickstarter project; therefore, those with interest should definitely consider contributing. As of the time of this post, there are twenty-nine days left in the campaign on Kickstarter. The goal is 150,000 CAD and they currently sit around 10,000 CAD. The pledge that nets you a Glance is 70 CAD or more and it should be sent out by October of this year. And even if you do not have a watch to pair Glance with, Kiwi Wearables intends on having a model with a strap.
