What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

As the pioneer of smartwatch adapters solution, we have received several email request to design adapters for their favourite smartwatches. Since our last few projects creating Adapter for smartwatches, many Asus Zenwatch 3 owners had contacted us suggesting SteelConnect to design one. Finally we've decided to take up the challenge and here you go. Another project by the backers.

 

Thank you all fellow backers & followers in Reddit for your support and insightful contribution! AZ3 for Asus Zenwatch 3 has been polished and carefully redesigned as per your feedback and suggestion.

Asus Zenwatch 3 is a beautiful and elegant watch, the mission is to upgrade yet remain the sophisticated look. Our concept is simple, flow along the original lug and let it blend according to the watch. The outcome is simply amazing!

Material: Aircraft Grade Aluminium 

Finishing: Type III Hard Anodized ( Silver, Gunmetal & Rose Gold ) 

Lug Size: Support 22mm watch strap

**We are currently working closely with our manufacturer to produce the very first metal version of AZ3 adapter. We promise that you will be able to see it before the end of campaign.** 

 

 

Just a few simple steps to complete the installation.

Step 1:  Remove original watch strap from the watch.

Step 2: Install the AZ3 adapter on your watch.

Step 3: Pick your favorite strap and connect to the adapter.

Risks and challenges

The risk is minimal. As this is our fifth campaign with Kickstarters. We are familiar with the entire process and supply chain. From buying raw material to tooling, production and finishing are all well scheduled. Yes! From time to time there will be unforeseen circumstances and the biggest risk with any Kickstarter involving a physical issue is manufacturing and shipping, which is why we have been working with our manufacturer closely to get the best possible prices and most timely shipping possible for AZ3 lug adapter.

However, we will keep ourself transparent throughout the progress and we are open to any comments and suggestion. This is a crowdfunding projects, thank you for making SteelConnect a better brand and product.

Its all about you. With every experience and effort that we pour in, we need you to come in and support us to make this a success. This is never a one man show, it's the power of the community that bring the entrepreneurship and innovation to the next level. The bottom line, we think the biggest challenge will be spreading AZ3 to the world. We hope that by using the power of social media, it will be shared out to every corner of the world within our campaign timeline. Please join us in the walk towards a better life! You rocks! Cheers!
