Sometimes at CES finding something a bit different is a real challenge, and this year has been no different. But in a slightly obscure area there was a rather exciting collection of gadgets from a company called One61.
The company produces a range of licenced smartwatches that feature geek-focused designs. Among them are Batman, Fallout, Rick and Morty and Wonder Woman watches.
Each are compatible with both iPhones and Android devices. They all make use of Bluetooth to connect and they are IP64 water resistant.
They also have the usual sensors, designed to track your movement. Quite impressive is the inclusion of a heart rate monitor too, although we obviously weren’t able to test this specific feature.
There’s also a move alert, to keep you going when you’ve been inactive for too long. There’s also sleep detection, which is pretty helpful.
Like any smartwatch you’ll get notifications about new text messages and there’s even a way to use your phone’s smart assistant – be that Siri or Google Assistant.
Battery life isn’t spectacular at 18 hours, but we’re sure the awesome watch faces and themes will make up for that.
These watches aren’t especially expensive at $ 150 but they will appeal to fans and have a lot of the features you’d hope from a more premium smartwatch.
As well as watches One61 also sells awesome backpacks which feature a 10,000mAh power pack to keep your phone or tablet charged.
These have an illuminated logo on them too, which looks excellent. The backpacks aren’t cheap though, at $ 150.
And the company also offers a range of smart trackers, including a Rick and Morty themed model that will help you locate your keys – but probably only in this dimension. Other characters are also available.
