About this project
The RumbaTime GO is the first watch of its kind – it incorporates an NFC cashless payment chip and a medical id bracelet into one accessory. There is no doubt that once you start wearing it, you will get asked about it constantly! Especially when you use it at one of the 180,000+ locations around the US that accept contactless transactions, including major retailers like CVS, Whole Foods, and Seven-Eleven…and this list is growing every day.
Furthermore, having a unique medical id adds a level of security for anyone, especially weekend athletes, young children who don’t have id yet, or people with medical conditions.
We have partnered with a Company called VITAband to provide the backend system for managing your health information in a completely secure environment – they also provide the interface with the credit card company to load funds onto your cashless payment chip. Setup is simple, you just logon to a dedicated page and follow the steps – it takes 5 minutes and the cost to manage your cashless payment account and ERP profile online is only $20 per year.
Our goal with the GO was to create something that fit within our general philosophy – that is to make an eye-catching design that is comfortable, cool and affordable. Our watches make great conversation pieces and this one is no exception! The band is made of medical grade silicone and stretches comfortably onto your wrist. It comes in 3 sizes (160mm, 180mm and 200mm), one of which will fit virtually every wrist out there, and seven colors. We designed a custom digital movement for the watch that incorporates the date, time, stopwatch and backlight into a relatively small case that is water resistant to 5 atm.
So…this is the part where we ask for your assistance – we need you to help spread the word about this revolutionary product and to get our first production order completed. By pledging at least $25 you will be pre-ordering a RumbaTime GO and helping us accomplish this goal. We are very excited to show this project to the Kickstarter community and look forward to keeping in touch as we move forward!
