    DRCH , Dec 12, 2014 :
    First of all, I am not in connection with névo, so i don't want/can't make any profit with it
    Also its not in connection with OnePlus ;)

    ATTENTION : It's a CROWD-FUNDED PRODUCT on www.indigogo.com :

    névo is a stylish minimalist watch with activity tracking, smartphone notifications and Swiss movement. This watch combines an analog watch with some smartwatch features. It's a pretty good alternative for traditional watch wearers, who don't like Android Wear.

    It shows you your physical activity.

    It has a pretty simple and quick way to show your daily progress via eleven white LED indicators around the névo dial.

    Coming back to notifications, if you receive a message or a call, the watch vibrates, so you won't miss anything, even if your phone is muted.
    You can also set alarms, to set a reminder or anything you want to, all silent of course ;)

    But now comes the interesting part about this watch.
    Android Wear-powered smartwatches, like the Moto 360 or the LG G watch R, have to be charged nearly every single day, this watch has two inbuilt batteries.
    The first battery powers the Swiss timekeeping movement for 5 years or more. The second battery powers the névo smart features and lasts 6 months or more. Both batteries are inexpensive and easy to change.


    As this is a crowd-funded product, it also has a downside. The problem with crowd-funded products is that the item(s) have no guarantee that they will be released on schedule, or sometimes, not at all. Delays of months or even years are not unheard of.

    But now talking about the specs ;)

    As you can see, it should be compatible with the OnePlus One, or any other smartphone, even iPhones :)

    In general, I think this is an awesome watch, at a reliable price (250$ after crowd-funding). It's not a real alternative to Android Wear watches, but if you like it classy and still want to have a bit of the feeling of a smartwatch, it's a pretty good option ;)

    Cheers

    Update 2:

    Many asked for this feature, now it's here !
    [​IMG]
    Here the text from their page :
    We decided to add six single color LEDs alongside the white LEDs that show the goal progression. The color LEDs can be used to indicate different types of phone alerts, in addition to the vibration.
    Now you will be able to customize alert settings of different types or for alerts from Favorites.

    The colors above are approximate (we are still finalizing) but the positions are correct.

    Update 3:
    They modified the case internally, upgraded from o-rings to d-rings, increased the spring resistance and fully tested the new design. nevo is now 5 ATM water resistant, instead of 3ATM!

    [​IMG]

    Looks nice! I especially like the notification led idea :) I like the looks of Android Wear though so I'll probably get one of those one day.

    ROTFL

    Anyway I could see the post title and immediately googled it. I am curious about the position of the hands on the face. Normal watch promotions dislay10 minutes past ten. This one's images show an impossible position for the hands to be in.
