About

  LEARN 🎸GUITAR FROM YOUR ⌚SMARTWATCH 

The way we learn music will never be the same...

 Wristruments is the world's first smartwatch application that helps you learn to play guitar anytime, anywhere.  Our patented technology creates a true hands-on experience that makes learning to play both fun and convenient.

 Well, it depends who you ask.  Your Wristruments is an expression of yourself, and fully customized to help you learn the way that's most effective for you.   

 Learn the basics of music theory without reading a novel. Chord library helps you memorize any chord from basic to advanced, and put them into chord progressions and songs.

It's hard enough to play a song, doing it while singing can seem nearly impossible. By showing you chords and lyrics on one screen synced up with the song, Wristruments is truly the easiest way to learn how to sing and play at the same time.

 By putting instruction in your line of vision while you play, Wristruments enables you to have access to learning that is simply not possible using music books, laptops, or smartphones.

 Here are some advantages that Wristruments' unique platform offers:

More hands-on experience to instruct you using both your iPhone and Smartwatch. 

 Our patented software responds to your hand movements to bring augmented reality to your smartwatch.

Wristruments Augmented Fretboard

Aligning content with your natural line of vision while playing eliminates the need to look back and forth between your book and instrument.

No More Looking Back and Forth

 There are unlimited ways that a single concept can be displayed with Wristruments.   Scales, chords, songs, and more are shown to you how you understand them best.

 Wristruments won't notify you about when to start practicing. This app has been created for the convenience of learning on your own time. 

To Open Wristruments, Just Start Playing

Wristruments will pick up on the sound of your guitar when you start playing and activate the app on your smartwatch.  NO MORE ANNOYING NOTIFICATIONS!

 Why learn only a few songs that you'll start to get comfortable with to end up playing them over and over again?  Wristurments will teach you all the things you need to know to play any song you want to learn.

 We know that a strict practice routine isn't always realistic in your busy schedule but it shouldn't cause you to give up playing or wanting to learn. So instead of telling you how and when to learn, we created something that helps you get a little bit better whenever you feel like playing.

Until now, it's been difficult to track all your progress. Wristruments will constantly re-assess your skill level every time you play.  By using your smartwatch, the app can track more of your practice sessions and analyze performance levels to constantly update and optimize your dynamic learning plan.

 Nope!  Wristruments is the world's only smartwatch app that teaches you real instruments in real time.

 Wristruments is your personalized learning assistant. Everything is 100% customized to your learning style and goals. Wristruments is constantly learning about your skills and evolving as you do.

The app begins with a quick assessment of your skill level, goals, and learning preferences to set up your custom Wristruments interface and learning plan.

Once you're set up, you have the option to choose from three modes, Learn, Practice, or Play.

Select Learn, Practice, or Play

 While a video lesson plays on your smartphone or tablet, personalized instruction is shown on your watch in real time to make learning more effective and hands-on.   You can also learn quick tutorials and new techniques using just your watch and headphones. 

Hybrid Video Smartwatch Lessons
Video Lesson Phone Screen

 Your practice tools sync to your last lesson, so everytime you practice you can be sure you're practicing the right thing to progress more quickly in your learning. 

Improv Practice with Static Scale

Songs are taught using your personalized representations of chords, and lyrics are color coordinated with chord changes to help you learn new songs rapidly. 

Play and Sing with Chords and Lyrics

 Sync-up with another guitarist and practice rhythm/lead, or add more instruments and play songs with your whole band! 

Play Together with Friends

 We've done extensive user-testing to find out how we could create the most effective learning solution for YOU, and yes, it really does work!

Risks and challenges

Our biggest risk and challenges during our first campaign were

1. Not having the ability to actually manufacture a smartwatch device.
2. Not having the experience to identify the right features to integrate it in a way that is actually useful, so doing more harm than good.
3. Creating a novelty product that is cool for a little then fades away.
4. Not being able to get the app developed in the given timeline/budget.
5. Not getting enough songs on the library.
6. Too hard to use.
