victorinox-cybertoolDon’t want to fully commit to a smartwatch, but yet you still want some smartwatch functionality? If that’s what you’re after, you might be interested to learn about a device called the Victorinox Cybertool. This is an add-on accessory developed by Victorinox and Acer which basically pops onto your watch and gives it some smartwatch functionality.

The accessory is a ring that has an LED display. This display will be able to act as a timer, countdown, or a stopwatch. It will also display incoming calls, messages, and various alerts. It can also double as a fitness tracker where your steps, distance, and calories are all measured, and to top things off, it can even find your phone.

The Cybertool is also IPX7 rated meaning that you don’t have to worry about getting it wet. The company is also boasting 5-7 days of battery life so you don’t have to keep charging it on a daily basis. Unfortunately there are some limitations which is that for now, it appears that the Cybertool only works with Victorinox’s Inox watches, so if you have a different watch brand then you’d be out of luck.

We also have to admit that while the Cybertool has potential, it is rather bulky so unless you don’t mind having it stick out on your wrist like a sore thumb, then maybe you could consider regular smartwatches. No word on pricing or availability just yet.
