Watches express who you are.
"Watches are more than just an accessory that tells time. It’s a personal story. It’s your own brand identity.What color, style, and brand you wear tells a story about who you are."
It’s an asset – something you hold onto and possibly pass on. This is why Kairos T-band was created. Enjoy all the benefits a smartwatch can provide without sacrificing what you love.

T-BAND ND (No Display) model is designed for people who want extended battery life, basic notifications (via vibrator and multi-color LED indicator), and activity (fitness/sleep), health data monitoring without the need for fancy displays or touch sensor capabilities. This is the ultimate businessmen’s smart watch, or rather a wearable device (smartband). Battery life is expected to last more than 7 days with the ND model.
On board Kairos OS will be able to push notifications such as text messages, incoming calls, and also push alerts from available apps via a discreet multi-color LED indicator and/or vibrator motor. On top of having multiple sensors such as 9-axis gyroscope, accelerometer, compass and optical sensor, the ND model also gets GSR (Galvanic Skin Sensor) which detects skin temperature and sweat.
T-BAND HD (Hidden Display) model is designed for people who want all of the smart watch functions while being super discreet. LED panels are embedded below a thin “membrane” like material which hides the display. When it’s turned off (default mode), the T-band HD actually looks like the ND model (rubber band). When there is a push notification or alert, the hidden LED panel lights up and display the necessary information. Battery life is same as the OD model (200mAH) which is expected to last 2-3 days on a full charge. The HD model however has one downside- it can only display English alphanumeric text and numbers. Non-alphabet characters (such as Chinese, Japanese, Korean Arabic, Russia, etc.) will not be displayed. Images and videos are also not able to be displayed through this model.
T-BAND OD (OLED Display) model is designed for the ultimate techie who also loves his/her analog wristwatch. The unit is comprised of a curved PMOLED display (active viewing area 11mmx25m with 170dpi resolution), touch sensor, and hardened mineral glass with special anti-scratch coating. The display is adequately bright with equally adequate resolution. Kairos has opted to go with these specs in order to maximize battery life. The unit is powered by ARM® Cortex-M4 processor with Dual mode Bluetooth Classic and BLE. This setup allows the T-band to be compatible with a wide range of smartphone models (from old to new). The OD model is also equipped with an on board Mic for Speech to Text capabilities (requires 3rd party app support).
Light. Functional. Robust.
Kairos Team has been hard at work creating a solid platform (OS) for Kairos products. The platform is based on a time-tested system called RTOS (which is used by several other smartwatch companies already). Kairos OS will be compatible with iOS, Android and Microsoft Phones. Instead of focusing on the ability to play certain games, play video clips, take photos, or making it compatible with as many apps as possible, Kairos OS has been focused on reliability, functionality, and compatibility with the most core and essential apps available. Another benefit this brings is the extra battery power it can provide – even with a smaller pack. Kairos plans to make SDK/API packages available for third party developers from Q2 of 2015.
