The biggest problem that health trackers share with smartwatches is that their technology cannot be transferred from one device to another. But that’s no longer the case thanks to Manufacture Modules Technologies’ E-Strap, a patented smart buckle and strap that fits on any watch. Why be required to wear one watch to track your physical activity and sleep when you can wear any watch you want?This is not the first foray into the smartwatch category by the Swiss company. MMT was established in 2015 to develop and commercialize horological smartwatch modules, firmware and apps. In that time, MMT modules have been implemented in watches by Frederique Constant, Movado, Mondaine, Ferragamo and Alpina. Read our coverage here.
The heart of the E-Strap is an ultra-small buckle extension that is built on a full smartwatch platform. The thin buckle can hardly be seen when covered by the leather strap.
