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.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.
Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.
The smartest analog dress watch with heart rate monitor
The Timepiece works like a regular analog watch. Except it is equipped with the stuffs you find on a fitness tracker. Including steps tracking, calories burnt, distance travelled, heart rate sensor, sleep monitoring, notifications, alarms and many more. All of these displayed on a 0.42” OLED screen embedded within the clock face.
Engineered to fit every situation - from formal suits to rugged outdoors. Every Timepiece comes with an additional silicone strap. The straps are designed with a quick release valve so you can swap them out between exercises.
We worked with Ronda to provide a highly accurate movement for our Timepieces. We insist on using Ronda's 2-pin hybrid quartz movement because of its ability to precisely tell time. Read more about Ronda Swiss Made movements here.
It is a fusion of a modern fitness tracker and an analog watch. The Timepiece assumes the role of simplicity, or rather, back-to-basics wearables.

Heart Rate Sensor
With a press of the button, the Timepiece will automatically read and display your heart rate on the large 0.42" OLED screen. Your heart rates will also be recorded in the watch and synced to the Timepiece app automatically.
Timepiece automatically analyses your sleep habits when you are resting.
Compare your sleeping habits on a daily, weekly or monthly schedule, helping you develop better sleeping habits.
30 days of use from a single charge
Timepiece is powered by an ultra-low energy module designed by us. The battery powers our incredible smart watch 24 hours a day for over 30 days, from a single charge. This means you only need to charge the Timepiece 12 times throughout an entire year!

Putting our expertise to work
Having been in the industry for over a decade, we are in the epicentre of the know-hows in designing ultra low battery consumption devices. We have fitted our own ultra-low energy module to the Timepiece to optimise its battery usage.
Why did we create the Timepiece?
We have been in the business of designing and producing fitness trackers for several years now. In 2017, the Singapore government approached us to work on an initiative to promote the general fitness of the Singapore citizens. The aim is to encourage citizens to clock 10,000 steps everyday. During this campaign, the Health Promotion Board of Singapore distributed more than half a million units of the fitness trackers.
During this period, almost everyone in Singapore was seen sporting a fitness tracker. This is when we realise people are actually wearing their fitness bands together with their analog watch. And we thought it looked funny.
This prompted us with the idea to create a singular model that combines both (the watch and fitness tracker) into a minimalist, sleek and elegant watch, which we now call the Timepiece.
The Timepiece app is a companion for the Oaxis Timepiece watch. We have sent an actual Timepiece watch to Apple which is used to verify compatibility with the iOS app. You may check it out here.

The making of the Timepiece
The Timepiece is fully designed, conceptualised, tested and developed in-house.

A free silicone strap will be shipped to all backers once we hit the $25,000 goal.
The Oaxis Timepiece is designed to look elegant on your wrist in a board meeting while also being highly functional during exercises. We will be providing a silicone strap forged from high compression production methods which guarantee extreme durability for all sports.
Bring your Timepiece along wherever your are. It is protected from water, dust, dirt and sand.
The domed glass design showcases the minimalistic style of the dials and digital display.
Made with the finest glass grade. Ensuring crystal clear visibility of the OLED screen.
Stainless steel construction
Enhanced durability on the glass means keeping the watch scratch-free.
Manufacturing of Timepiece
Each Timepiece is delicately assembled by hand. The internal Ronda movements are flown in directly from Switzerland before fitted in the heart of the watch.
Our promise to you...
Is to deliver quality products to you, our customers. The Timepieces have already been produced with 400 pieces in the factory. The funds raised on Kickstarter will be used to pay for the remaining payment before we can have them shipped out from the factory, or they can be used to increase production if we manage to have more backers.
We are already done with the product development stage and have sent samples to Apple for testing, which has to be done before they could approve our app. Today, we are extremely happy to share that our app has been approved! Check it out here.
All shipments will come with a complimentary registered shipping label to ensure accountability and trackability.

Risks and challenges
Every project comes with its own unique risks and challenges but we try to do our very best to minimize them. As a business, it is our duty to produce products that our customers find useful. It is also our duty to ensure our customers receive the best service and timely delivery of your purchases. The Oaxis team has been in this business for several years now, every product innovation surpasses the previous with stronger and better designs.
The Oaxis Timepiece featured above are working products that came straight from our production factory. These were the first sample batch which we used for media samples and internal testing.
You are choosing to purchase 2 x Timepiece of any size and colour.
An email will be sent to you once the campaign ends to choose your preferred and colour.
Note: Backers for this 'V-day Special' couple pack will receive the watches by January 2019 (a month earlier). Our aim is to allow you to present this as a gift for your significant other during Valentine's day.
