Reserve Strap for Apple Watch
Last updated on November 15th, 2015 at 12:07 pm
The Apple Watch has been one of the most exciting gadgets of the year so far with geeks and chics alike all reaping the benefits of having a world of connectivity permanently on your wrist. But all those functions eat up the battery like nobody’s business and remembering/being bothered to charge your watch every night can be a chore in itself.
But fear not, a new band has been announced that charges Apple Watch while you wear it. Say hello to the Reserve Strap for the Apple Watch, the first and only strap to charge your watch – and not only a small amount of charge – 30 hours no less!
The Reserve Strap will connect to the Apple Watch similar to Apple bands. It will slide in laterally then you’ll then push forward a small switch underneath the band to engage the accessory port connection to secure the Reserve Strap on the Watch. Then just switch on the power when you need it! Simple.
Once charging is complete after an hour or so, simply press the power button again to save the rest of Reserve Strap for another time. You’ll know how much charge you’ve got left by the LED indicator on the strap. When you turn the charge on or plug it in, the LED will glow either green, yellow or red indicating a high, medium or low charge.
Recharging the Reserve Strap and Apple Watch is easy too. You can leave your Strap on the Watch and simply plug it in via micro USB. This will charge the Apple Watch and Reserve Strap at the same time!
The Strap works on both 38mm and 42mm Apple Watches and is fully compliant with with Apple’s Band Design Guidelines for the Apple Watch so it doesn’t violate either AppleCare warranty or Apple Terms & Conditions. It’s also as resistant to water as the Watch and won’t affect any of Watch’s functionality such as its sensors.
You can get a Reserve Strap in either White, Grey or Black and can pre-order now for an early November shipping via the Reserve Strap Website for around £160. We think it’s a little on the pricey side but it could be invaluable, particularly if you’re travelling this summer.
