While our coverage of this year's CES in Las Vegas was pretty comprehensive when it came to the big name announcements like LG's rollable OLED R TV, there was plenty of smaller, more-niche gadgets and gizmos that we didn't have time to spotlight during the show itself and got a little buried in the noise of the world's biggest consumer electronics tradeshow.
We're taking a moment to appreciate and highlight each of these products up in a new recurring feature called The CES Files, which we'll be running over the next month or so. Without any further hustle, here's the first installment.
These days, there's not a huge amount of diversity in the smartwatch and wearable market. Most of the options include fitness tracking, notification support and a varying amount of battery life. The Soundbrenner Core takes things in a different direction.
Rather than use the form-factor of a smartwatch for fitness, it opts to cater to the needs of musicians. It's a smartwatch that comes with a built in vibrating metronome, magnetic tuner and decibel meter. Soundbrenner also say the watch comes with three days of battery life, notification support and IP66 water-resistance.
The Soundbrenner Core is available for pre-order on Indiegogo with prices starting at US$179.
