What is a prototype?

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.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

THE WORLD FIRST REVERSIBLE & MODULAR WATCHBAND

 

 

Remod Rainbow Coming back soon! Ready to build your very own watchband!
Remod Rainbow Coming back soon! Ready to build your very own watchband!

 

THE CRAFTMANSHIP

What if wearing a watch was even easier?  

Your daily routine will be simplified. Our engineers and product designers have created this unique mechanism that makes wearing a watch even easier. Each part of the REMOD watchband is designed to complement your watch’s style, while still retaining a sleek, sophisticated look to provide flexibility and personalization. Put it on, take it off, change up the colors—it’s up to you. Check out the details below for what makes a REMOD Watchband. With REMOD, everything is possible—the only limit is your imagination.

WHY REMOD? 

How REMOD works?
How REMOD works?

SteelConnect is driven by creating cutting edge, personal, and beautiful products. Time is something precious to all of us, and we’re always looking for ways to improve how we wear it on our wrist. As a watch-lovers ourselves, we’re striving to make changes in this industry. We want to bring excitement to your wrist, and change how you wear your watch. Join us on this wonderful journey to discover the infinite possibilities of REMOD, and help us to make a change today.

MAGIC TWIST

The SteelConnect in-house designed “magic twist” for the REMOD watchband is crafted to allow the reversible function to work on something as small as your watchband, letting you show off the elegant metal strap while enjoying the touch of soft silicon on your wrist. Whether you’re after fun or work, it’s just a twist away.

MAGNETIC CLASP

The SteelConnect in-house designed magnetic clasps for the REMOD Watchband are refreshing the durable, sturdy appearance of the watchband. You want something strong, something that will last. Every single REMOD clasp receives the same care and attention, and you’ll get a beautiful piece of flexible, functional jewellery, that’s designed to go the distance.

 

MODULAR

METAL VS SILICONE

 

We love the concept of fusion, and our combination of different material and design is bringing new life to the watch market. REMOD Watchbands are built on a base of metal or silicone, which gives you a whole range of products, thousands of combinations, and ultimate personalization both in appearance and functionality. Want something different? Our ultimate plan is to bring you more materials like wood, engineered plastic, leather, and more, and expand the REMOD family.

Customize your watchband to your personal style

 THE METAL LINK

 
Each metal link is CNC-machined and stamped, piece by piece, and quality-checked for assured precision. Aircraft-grade metal and Type III hard-anodizing were chosen to achieve a premium and durable cosmetic finishing.

 

 

THE SILICON LINK

 

Nominated as the most comfortable strap selection, you’ll get one of these with every REMOD watchband. There’s plenty of colors and styles for you to choose from—the sheer number of combinations will let you personalize your watchband any way you want. And ladies, fear not—REMOD comes in sizes that’ll fit your wrist too.

 Part Glossary

 Compatibility Chart for Smartwatches

Classic & Modern Watches - Non Smartwatch

Watch lugs are the extensions on the top and bottom of a watch where the bracelet or strap attaches. If your watch has normal lugs within the range of 18mm, 20mm, 22mm, or 24mm REMOD Watchband should fit accordingly. If you still need confirmation, drop us a private message—our team would love to find out for you. Cheers!

HOW TO SELECT A REMOD WATCHBAND THAT FITS YOU

At the end of our campaign, you’ll receive a survey where you can pick your choice of colours, add-ons and shipping details. Let’s go through the steps below.


STEP 1: REMOD Basic Selection - 28 to choose from
Select your colour combination of the Metal Link and Silicone Link, then tell us your number. It’s as simple as that!

STEP 2: Watchband Size

Here’s how to measure your wrist size.

The white arrow represents a string or thread you’re using to measure your wrist size. Every watch has its own dimensions, so it’ll work best if you place your watch on top of your wrist when measuring. If the circumference of your wrist is below 145.6mm, you don’t need to add on any additional links. If your wrist circumference is greater than 145.6mm, then you’ll need to include some extra links from the add-ons below.

STEP 3: Watch Lug Size

Here’s how to measure your watch lug size.

Measure your watch lug size and select the Magic Twist Lug that fits your watch. The color will automatically follow your selection from Step 1.

SHIPPING

 
Shipping will commence by the end of February 2017, and we’ll provide you with a product tracking email once shipment is confirmed.  

In the meantime, we’d like to share a little bit about our shipping experience for you to know when to expect your rewards.  

International shipping is available for most countries. For Israel, both FedEx & Standard Shipping is not available. For Ukraine, only Fedex is available.  

Please note that any tax or duties are not included, therefore backers will be responsible for paying duties and taxes at the time of shipping if it’s required by your customs.  

Standard International Shipping (£5.00) usually takes 5-6 weeks’ transit time to your selected country, but this excludes time required for customs clearance. Most countries will take about 4-5 business days for customs clearance, while in Mexico, India, Canada, Australia, Sweden, and Indonesia will take about 2-3 weeks for clearance.  

Backers can have the option to select FedEx for an upgraded courier service at the end of the campaign.  

If you want priority shipping, be sure to add an additional £10 for Fedex Priority Shiping in advance, as we’ll be unable to collect any further payment from you after the campaign has closed. We're sorry for the inconvenience, and thank you so much for your kind understanding.

PayPal is our only payment gateway at the moment, and we won’t be able to process your order later through our website.  

**We encourage backers/REMOD watchband lovers from Turkey to pledge via Kickstarter instead of waiting for them to be in stock later through our website.

 

Other Ways You Can Help 

If you can't contribute through the rewards, we believe that you may still be able to help us to get REMOD out there. Help us to spread the word and make some noise about our campaign. You can use the Kickstarter share tools to promote our campaign. Just tell your friends: what if wearing a watch was even easier?

Risks and challenges

Transparency is our priority. We started our progressive updates well before the campaign launched, and we’ll continue to do that until the very end.

There are definitely risks and obstacles that we may face along the way in achieving our goal. We’ve reduced the risk to a minimum by producing the near-to-final prototype, tested it and improve it before launching. This helps in reducing the overall lead time between the final prototype and mass production.

Our dear manufacturer has been in partnership with us for a few projects now. They know how we work things out, and we know their ability, reliability, and quality assurance.
