Modular watches and smartwatches are both rather recent developments, but how about a modular smartwatch? That's exactly what London-based startup Blocks is offering.

Blocks calls its invention the world's first modular smartwatch. The watch face itself is a fully functional smartwatch which has all the features you would expect in any smartwatch. The incredible part however is the strap. Each strap is made up of several links, each of which is a module with unique functions. You can choose the modules that offer the functions you're interested in, and put them together to build a smartwatch that is completely unique to you.

These modules offer everything from fitness tracking and weather updates to GPS navigation and mobile payments.

Ultimately, this modular smartwatch allows you to only carry around those functions that are of value to you, and gives you the ability to leave the rest at home until you actually need them.
