Anyone who still loves the look of their old watch, but wants the latest and greatest smartwatch features, will be happy to hear about this line of advanced watch straps.

The 'Unique' line of watch straps from Polish starup company uBirds discreetly turns any watch into a technological timepiece. At first appearance this watch strap looks like any other slim and fashionable leather watch band, but this watch strap discreetly covers a set of electronics including sensors, a battery, accelerometer and more. Instead of using a screen interface, a simple LED light is used to maintain the minimal elegance of the band.

The 'Unique' watch strap syncs to your smartphone and can notify you by blinking or vibrating depending on a number of pre-set options available in a companion app. For those who want both style and technological functionality, this discrete and fashionable smartwatch strap is the obvious choice.
