Building a discreet-yet-powerful device that could affix to the back of watches unobtrusively to deliver all the features of a smartwatch, such as fitness tracking and notifications, was a challenge that seemed tailor-made for Igor’s engineers. Having participated in hardware accelerator incubator Highway 1, the Chronos team turned to Igor for help polishing their demo in advance of investor presentations. Leveraging our firmware and electrical engineering capabilities, Igor developed tap-control and LED functionality, Bluetooth stack management, and power optimization for the device. Those demos gave the Chronos team the advantage they needed to secure first-round seed funding.
After funding, Igor continued work with Chronos to develop mechanical and electrical system architectures, build form-factor prototypes for further demos and testing, and ready their designs for mass production.
