"SWINGS seamlessly merges classic Swiss and futuristic Silicon Valley." – Yanko Design

A breakthrough in battery life

SWINGS sets a new record in smartwatch battery life thanks to our next generation digital chipset – exclusive to SWINGS.

SWINGS’ innovative technology powers the smartwatch for 18 months of continuous use and 24 months of regular use with an easy-to-replace coin battery (CR2450). No recharging required.

Sharing greatly helps our Kickstarter succeed and allows us to spend more time and money into delivering SWINGS to you instead of marketing.

 

 

The finest materials & craftsmanship

We've spared no expense in making SWINGS the best smartwatch.

  • Swiss analog components – high precision, long lasting Swiss engineering
  • Next generation digital chipset – ultra power efficient and exclusive to SWINGS
  • Sapphire glass – scratch proof, the toughest glass available
  • High precision gyroscope – the most advanced gyroscope available for fitness & sleep tracking; 3x more accurate than other smartwatches
  • Waterproof to 300ft / 100m – IPX8 rated; most smartwatches are only IPX6 which is only resistant to water
  • Insane battery life – SWINGS’ innovative technology powers the smartwatch for 18 months of continuous use and 24 months of regular use with an easy-to-replace coin battery
  • 316L stainless steel – body and bands; no corrosion, no skin rashes
  • Genuine leather bands
  • High quality silicone bands – lightweight and comfortable for sports or everyday wear

All to create a durable, stylish, and high quality smartwatch that you'll love for years.

Music Control

Adjust your favorite tunes with your watch. The SWINGS watch connects with any music app on your phone. Stop and play music, and control the volume, and change tracks all from your smartwatch.

Auto Change Time Zones

No need to constantly adjust your watch to different time zones. SWINGS watch smart chip sensor automatically changes the time zone for you.

Disconnect Notification

If your watch disconnects from your smartphone, it will give you warning and vibrate.

Alarm

Wake up with ease! Your SWINGS watch gives you the option to wake up by an alarm or vibration mode.

Call Notification

Never miss an important call during a meeting. If a call comes in, your SWINGS watch will vibrate and the dial will indicate a call alert. Push a button on the watch to dismiss the call and immediately send it to voicemail if you're busy.

Health Tracking

Power consumption 

Graph shows 24 hours of usage. SWINGS revolutionary digital chipset uses ultra-low power consumption, maximizing the battery life.

2 years, no charging

SWINGS operates up to 24 months on a standard CR2025 watch battery without charging. To replace the battery, take your SWINGS watch to any qualified jeweler or watch specialist.

Accurate fitness and sleep tracking

Most smartwatches today are created with 3 gyroscopes to provide tracking results. SWINGS takes this to a new level with 9 high precision gyroscopes for 3x the accuracy. It's the most advanced gyroscope system available on a smartwatch.

SWINGS users can track their steps, fitness and calorie burs with reminders to move when they’ve been sedentary for too long. SWINGS also automatically tracks quality of sleep when the watch is worn in bed.

Recent Testimonials

I love smart technology and I also love good watches. 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.
James Cerini

Ok, #1 sleep tracking, #2 water resistance, #3 fitness tracking and #4 design combined....what more would you want? This convinces me that this is the better replacement for my ugly blue Fitbit.
Bart Feldberg

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 WATCH' that takes care of everything! Everything about the features that excite me. Being a seasoned traveler, a must-have watch for my busy traveling!
Jon Ward

This looks like a much better idea than a "smartwatch" that just duplicates my phone and needs constant recharging. Also very nice looking watches!
Bill Layton

SWINGS is an international collaboration with team members in New York, San Francisco, Zürich, and Beijing. Our team has designed and manufactured high-end watches and smartwatches for some of the biggest watch brands in Europe and the US. We know the challenges and requirements for manufacturing and shipping watches at scale.

Please do not hesitate to send us a message if you have any questions or comments.

 

Risks and challenges

We and our manufacturing partners have years of experience in the industry! We are aware our project is complex and that there are always unforeseen issues, but we have anticipated and planned for potential risks and have built a rock-solid production and delivery plan.

Firstly, our production is quite advanced and you can be very confident about our capacity to provide high-quality products on time. We spent over 12 months designing, developing, and testing finalized samples.

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 2-year warranty and satisfaction guarantee.

Thanks for all the support! We are excited to take this next step with you, the Kickstarter community!
