Wearable electronics design is not easy!
We were recently awarded a utility patent for our design work with Reserve Strap. One of the main innovations was the way we packaged the PCB and batteries. We maintained a robust electrical and mechanical system while also allowing the components to flex to the shape of the body, thereby overcoming this fundamental challenge of wearable electronics. The patent also illustrates our novel method of achieving a miniaturized, robust, multi-pin connection to the watch. We achieved these features in balance with real manufacturing processes. Design For Manufacturing (DFM) remains one of the top priorities for the development of consumer products. If you can’t make it you can’t sell it!
