Prime Strap Gives You Apple Watch Replaceable Batteries

Prime Strap Gives You Apple Watch Replaceable Batteries


Did you buy an Apple Watch? Aw, we’re sorry to hear that. Now you’re stuck with a marginally useful smart watch with a battery that barely lasts through the day. Not all hope is lost though, since watch band makers are getting increasingly ingenious and designing products that go beyond aesthetics. The Prime Strap is a rather chunky band that houses two 150mAh swappable batteries, which can externally charge your watch through its 6-pin port. You can carry extra batteries with you in a slick case, and simply switch them out once you’re running low on power. The case, incidentally, also charges the batteries in 2.5 hours, so you can redo the cycle once they run out.

Granted, you’ll have to have thicker wrists for the ensemble not to look weird on you, but if you’re really concerned about getting the most out of your questionable purchase, you’ll likely want to pony up the $199 pledge.
