We’ve seen a good number of smart accessories meant to make smartwatches even better, but this might be one of the best so far.
Based on this, we’re well aware of the fact that one of the main reasons that you might want to own a smartwatch might be to use it as a fitness tracker. However, most smartwatches can be considered difficult to wear when it comes down to carrying out sport activities because of their inconvenient straps, bulkiness and difficulty to be worn on the wrist.
As your wrist clearly isn’t the best place to wear your smartwatch when you’re training, an interesting add-on known by the name of Shift aims to help fix this, and put the watch in a truly ergonomic position. Based on this, Shift is simply a wrist strap designed in such a way to move your watch into a better position when you’re training.
To put things better into perspective, when worn, your device will rest upon the stretch of skin situated above your thumb and index finger, and be situated diagonally, to ensure optimal viewing and comfort.
The strap is made from zinc and silicone rubber, thus making it quite resistant. It also comes along with a spring pin tool, which you can use to quickly swap back to your traditional watch strap once you’re done training.
Due to its look, people are unlikely to want to keep the strap on at all times, as its main purpose is to make training while wearing your watch feel better, but isn’t designed for any activities outside it.
At this moment in time, the Strap, which is available as a crowdfunding project is compatible with a couple of smartwatches and fitness trackers, including the Moto 360, Apple Watch, Gear S2 Classic, the Pebble Time, Garmin Forerunner and more.
