Sony’s Wena straps transforms just about any watch into a smartwatch that can be used for notifications, fitness tracking, and even contactless payments. They come in Active ($450) and Pro ($510) styles with the former consisting of silicone material, while the latter, a metal strap, which can be attached to luxury watches, Rolex included. The Pro features a 20mm band in silver or black, but can be used with watches that have 18mm, 20mm or 22mm lugs. Read more for another video and additional information.
“There’s also contactless payment technology on both straps that’s made possible by Wirecard’s Boon app for Android and iOS. This won’t connect to Google Pay or Apple Pay technology. Notifications also appear on the rear of the strap in the black box. If you don’t own a traditional watch face to connect this to, Sony is also releasing three watch faces that you can connect to the straps. None of these have smart features, so you’ll have to get one of the smart straps to get those features,” reports Tech Radar.
