THE NEW REVAMP M°180
Minimize Back Crack Issue - Adapt to different Wrist Size - Nato/Zulu friendly.
SteelConnect 2.0 (our first Kickstarter project) has proved to be our most popular adapter so far. We believe this has proven the need of an adapter for special design smart watches in the market. We’ve decided to explore how far this humble idea can carry on to. The result is Moto360. We’re so excited when Moto360 were first introduce in early 2014. Its sophisticated looks has brought many inspiration to our design team. Exploring its possibilities and variant. “Create your own style… let it be unique for yourself and yet identifiable for others.” ― Anna Wintour

“I want everyone to wear what they want and mix it in their own way. That, to me, is what is modern.” ― Karl Lagerfeld
Same goes to the “fashion statement” you are wearing on your wrist. We’re thankful, Motorola had came out with such an elegant smartwatch design where now the whole world recon Moto360 as the most beautiful smartwatch yet. We are a bunch of people that love to dress up beautifully everyday, be different yet caught the attention positively. After the humble success of our first kickstarter campaign, we would love to introduce to you SteelConnect M, a connector allowing you to mix and match your collections of watchband into matching your daily “attire”. Now even your wrist can look different everyday, with just a single twist with your smartwatches. We would love to help you bringing your style to the next level. SteelConnect-M is designed to compliment your Moto360 adapting to your very own style.

< Product Design >
SteelConnect M is a concept inherit from Pebble SteelConnect. We aim to create something that is simple, yet produce flexibility, fashionable and further enhance the already fashionable tech product in the market. The product is design in the way that fuse into Moto360 and also reduce the process of manufacturing to the minimum. Every curve and angle are carefully design to fit beautifully to the smart watch. In this section, we spent a lot of time researching, developing and designing, passing through times of proofing, revising and numerous tests. Our design team had came out with more than 30 design and came down to this one piece that we think best compliment every aspect. We love it!
< Manufacturing >
SteelConnect M part are solely made from Stainless Steel materials, it required high level of precision to fabricate. In addition, the high details and angles from our design required more than 6 process to complete. With all the lesson learn from our previous manufacturer, we had manage to secure two reliable manufacturer who are ready to produce SteelConnect M. However we need your support in order to fulfil the MOQ and bulk purchase of the material. We had received very positive feedback from our previous campaign backers. They simply love the quality and flexibility provided by the adapters. This is what motivated us to move forward to create SteelConnect M.
< Fulfilment >
If you knew us from our previous campaign, you will know that we are fully transparent or naked in updating our progress. We carefully reply every comments, message and email that came into our inbox. With previous experience gain, we conservatively estimate the time needed for the manufacturer and packaging, which the purpose is to shipped SteelConnect M to the backers hands in the committal time. In addition, we are very emphasise in first come first serve basis where we prioritise the people that believe and trust in us in the very beginning stage.
< YOU >
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 men show, its the power of the community that bring the entrepreneurship and innovation to the next level.
