About

Introducing Patch, a smart and stylish watch strap embedded with flexible electronics that turns your favourite timepiece into a smart wearable.

 

Patch is for anyone who treasures their traditional timepiece more than the huge variety of smartwatches out there, and yet do not want to be left behind when it comes to technological advancement. 

 

 

Patch tracks the steps you took throughout the day, calculates your calories burnt, allowing you to monitor your fitness goals.

    

Patch comes with a customisable sedentary reminder that reminds you to take a quick stretch when you've been sitting down for too long.

      

With a flick of or tap on the wrist, you can remotely tell your phone to take a photo or end a call that you couldn't pick up.

    

Patch sets off vibration reminders to remind you when you have left your phone behind.

    

Patch uses a replaceable coin-cell battery which is able to last about 3 months, so you don't have to worry about running out of juice.                                      

                                                                       

Patch looks and feels just like any ordinary watch strap. The electronics within are designed and engineered to fit as seamlessly as possible.

    

Patch is stylish, it represents you and we know it'll bring out the best in you in every situation.   

                                  

Patch comes in a selection of variety classic premium leather and vibrant nylon straps. Premium Leather straps from sustainable source are available in 2 options:

 In-house designed graphic nylon straps are available in 5 designs: 

 

 

 

FlexPatch, the brains behind Patch, comes equipped with an accelerometer, a vibration motor, a low-energy Bluetooth module all mounted on a flexible circuit board to allow for the conformation to the curvature of your wrist.

Risks and challenges

In Patch Co., we believe in overcoming challenges with relevant expertise. Our young minds are learning quickly and consulting PhDs on problems that are beyond our knowledge.

At the core of Patch, is our FlexPatch, which houses several components, ranging from bluetooth module to a CR1632 coin cell. Our challenge right now is compacting the prototype into a 18mm strap while not bulking up Patch by too much.

Like most electronics product, liaising with a reliable manufacturer will cause a significant delay. To combat this problem, we have spent a good amount of time in Shenzhen to network with appropriate manufacturers.
Besides the above, we will have to acquire certification such as FCC and CE.
