Senstone may be one of the world’s smallest wearables — and perhaps one of the most useful.
The tiny device has one function: to help you keep track of your ideas, to-do lists, and notes while you’re on the go.
Senstone records voice memos, uploads them to an app, and transcribes them for you. The device is launching on Kickstarter Tuesday with the goal of raising US$50,000, but I got an early version of the Senstone to try out for myself.
Here’s how it works.
Senstone records voice notes that are then uploaded to an app on your iPhone. To record a note, you push a button on the side of the device. To stop recording, you press it again.
The device is designed to help 'capture the things in your daily life that you don't want to miss' -- things like goals, ideas, or notes. Rather than taking out your phone and typing out a note, Senstone wants to be like a low-effort journal.
Senstone pairs with your phone via Bluetooth and syncs up with an app. When it's connected, the device will automatically upload your recordings to the app.
A cool feature of Senstone is that it can still record offline and store the notes right in the device. Once you're online again, the recordings will upload to your phone.
Why would you need this feature? If you're someone who likes to brainstorm while jogging, for instance, you can clip it to your jacket and leave your phone at home.
