Auto Time Calibration

The smartwatch time can correct automatically, allowing to read time accurately even without having to make any manual  adjustment. 

Health & Fitness

We understand monitoring is not enough, and insight matters. That is why our R&D team is constantly improving our data accuracy and aspire to develop the best motion detection technology.

Leita Teuton track your heart rate and steps, calculate calories burned, measure nutrition intake and much more. Leita Teuton enable you to enjoy more freedom and mobility. Map your workout route with built-in GPS, listen to your favorite music, and track your performance hands-free.

Teuton's powerful sensors precisely track real-time heart rate data, speed, distance, and GPS location. No need to bring your phone when going out for a run; Teuton will save and share your activity with your phone and Google Fit! Sync with Bluetooth headphones to listen to music or podcasts on the go. 

Your Leita Teuton helps you measure your activities (speed, distance, time, heart rate and calories) for 20 types of sport.  

Notification Reminders

Keep track of all your notifications straight from your wrist and answer your messages without taking your phone out of your pocket. 

In addition to Caller ID and Calendar Events, Leita Teuton displays your favorite social networks and app notifications from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, Linkedin, Gmail, Skype, Uber, and more! 

 Teuton Rest- Gentle awakening at the right time  

Wake up feeling refreshed, thanks to Rest waking you within a 30-minute window during your lightest period of sleep.  Teuton Rest analyzes your personal sleep patterns, based on your heart rate, heart variability, and your movements while asleep.

Hands Free Assistance

Never put your safety in jeopardy. While driving, simply flip your wrist to answer or hang up a phone call. Play phone calls out loud with Teuton’s built-in speaker. Use flip gesture to activate voice interaction and search for information on the go.  

Floating Touch Technology

With new touch sensor technology known as "floating touch", you will be able to interact with the phone's touchscreen display without having to touch it at all. This special user experience is capable of registering the presence of your finger 20 mm above the display, allowing it to detect the screen coordinates that you are pointing at in addition to your finger's distance from the screen. 
 

Auto Sync Time

No need to set the time when landing in a different time zone: Leita Teuton will do it automatically in synchronization with your smartphone. Keep an eye on your hometown time zone too, thanks to added technology features to the smartwatch.

Wireless Charging

Not often found in most wireless chargers, is the ease with which you can position your device and still receive a charge. Many wireless chargers have to constantly be adjusted and it's a real pain to have to reposition your phone for it to begin charging. That's not the case with the Leita Teuton Charger Duo, which allows liberal movement around both the pad and stand. 

Apps & Features

Leita Teuton pre-loads a series of useful apps, including "Dialer,” “Calendar,” “Health,” “Fitness,” and many more. These apps were designed specifically for optimal smartwatch functionality. You can even use “Find my phone” to locate your phone from your watch!  

Frequent OTA Updates

The Leita Teuton has been refined over 8 times since March 2017, with the continued devotion of our tester community. We are committed to listening to you, our community, and look forward to improving the Teuton even more with your help. 

Android Wear powers Leita Teuton

 Besides managing calls and messages, Leita Teuton empowers your active lifestyle with the convenience of Google Assistant, fitness apps like Google Fit, and the powerful ecosystem of Google Play. Google Play brings you apps that enable sleep monitoring, music detection, multi-language support, and much more. The possibilities are endless with your Leita Teuton Hybrid Smartwatch.

Designing Leita Teuton Smartwatch

The Leita team has put endless hours and effort into designing Teuton and optimizing its auto-time calibration capabilities. We have made countless prototypes. Tested. Refined. Redesigned. And finally reached a result that satisfied our thirst to redefine the hybrid smartwatch landscape.  

Throughout the design and R&D cycle of the Leita Teuton launch we have made every effort to bring perfection to our loyal Leita family, and ensure people both like our smartwatches and look good at the same time.

 How Our Hybrid Smartwatches Are Priced So Well? 

You think: How can a luxury hybrid smartwatch be so affordable?

Very easily! In the supply chain of each manufacturer, no matter what good, there are several positions such as manufacturing, distribution to wholesalers and the shop in which you finally buy the product. Each of these positions costs money and rightly so, salaries, research & development, ect... must be paid of course.

In this Kickstarter campaign, we exclusively offer you the opportunity to purchase a luxury hybrid smartwatch directly from us, without the need for a middlemen. That's why we can offer the Leita Teuton at this unbeatable price.

Team & Manufacturing:

Leita is an international collaboration with team members in: Switzerland, Estonia, and China. Our team has designed and manufactured high-end watches and smartwatches for some of the biggest watch brands in Europe and we know the challenges and requirements for manufacturing and shipping watches at scale. Leita has already started the first manufacturing batch for quality assurance.

Both are ready for your pleasure when the Leita Teuton is delivered in August Please do not hesitate to send us a message if you have any questions or comments.

Recent Testimonials

"The Leita Teuton is the first of its kind watch that contains both an elegant look, while also  having great functionality that people actually use. The mobile app for many smartwatch devices is not user friendly and difficult to navigate, but this mobile app is simple and easy to use for all types of people."

-Tom Gilberg 
 

"I love the look of classic analog watches but would find the extra digital capabilities extremely useful without having to charge it every day. Finally the smartwatch that takes care of everything! Everything about the features that excite me.   

-Roberto Weiner
 

"This looks like a much better idea than a "smartwatch" that just duplicates my phone and needs constant recharging. This watch packs both great software and hardware into a seamless design, along with a cool mobile app. Lastly, the Leita Tueton is sleek, but does not have a typical smartwatch look."

-Tom Anderson
 

"I love smart technology and I also love good mobile apps. I've been let down by terrible battery life in the smartwatches I have owned so far. To have a watch with a decent battery life makes all the difference when traveling as I often don't have any ability to charge my devices."

-Carla Samuels

Leita Teuton Timeline

Risks and challenges

Our vision for Leita Teuton has always been to produce a smartwatch with both classic styling and leading technology. There have been big challenges in bringing Leita Teuton to life and for nearly three years our team has been working long hours to refine and optimize the design, technology, production and logistics for Leita Teuton.
We’ve worked diligently with our partners for many months to fine tune every aspect of the Leita Teuton and identify and eliminate any areas of weakness which may cause issues with performance, durability and user satisfaction. We’ve invested an enormous amount of time and our own finances on research, development, sourcing, prototyping and testing. We’re in the final stages of this and we need your help to get over the last hump and make Leita Teuton a reality.
Secondly, we have very skillful and professional suppliers and do not anticipate delays to our shipping timeline. However, if by chance anything unexpected happens, we promise to keep you informed, both during the campaign and afterward. We also back all our watches with a 1 year warranty and satisfaction guarantee.
Thanks for all the support! We are excited to take this next step with you, the Kickstarter community!
