Apple Watch is cool. The only bad thing about it is that like your phone, you do have to charge it just about every night, and it can only charge on the dock that it comes with, making it hard to charge if you aren’t at home, or worse, if you are in transit. Some smart inventors have created a product that will prevent this annoyance from preventing your enjoyment of your new Apple Watch. It is called the PRIME Strap, by Brilletark, and is a strap for the Apple Watch that holds 2 small batteries, and can recharge it. It charges your watch via the 6 pin port where the strap clicks in. Apple doesn’t list this area as an official charging area but curious developers have found that you can indeed charge the watch through this port.
However, PRIME Strap can also become a sort of charger for your Apple Watch, by placing the batteries from the band inside of a power bank that comes with it. Then you can use this to charge your iPhone 5 or 6 with a lightning cable that is retractable.
While this might be a cool tool, if fashion is your thing, you probably won’t like it. The strap is quite bulky and masculine, so tech savvy women might find it a bit much for their looks.
Right now, the project is still in development, and people can fund it on Kickstarter. Backers there can get a PRIME Strap for a backing of just $199.
There are no upcoming events.
