Will.i.am is providing wearables another shot.

After unveiling the disastrously large Puls hooked up wearable in 2014, the rapper prepares to try once again with the assistance of Gucci.

At Baselworld, the watch market’s leading international trade fair, Gucci announced plans to companion with the entertainer’s brand, i.am+, to create a new wearable computer device.

Regardless, Will.i.am says he’s thrilled to function with Gucci Timepieces on a wearable principle that does not need to be combined with a smartphone. ‘I created the term ‘fashionology,’ a merging of the worlds of style as well as modern technology, which is specifically just what this cooperation with Gucci stands for,’ he said throughout the announcement.

A great deal of individuals are producing wearable gadgets from a tech background. Gucci has actually been placing points on your physical body for years,” will.i.am said.

Like the Puls, the brand-new Gucci and also Will.i.am device will certainly be a ‘completely standalone smartband,’ implying it won’t be tethered to your phone like the Apple Watch and also other smartwatches.
