ReVault is the world’s first smartwatch that doubles as wireless storage

With so many smartwatches around, it can be hard to stand out from the crowd. ReVault has a unique feature, however – it acts as a wireless storage device, so you can back up your files and access them on the go without an internet connection.

It’s like cloud storage, in that it syncs your files across multiple platforms. It supports Android, iOS, Mac OS X, Windows and Linux. In other words, you can access all your documents on your iPhone, Android handset, desktop or laptop, all thanks to the watch.

And because you don’t need an internet connection, you can access your files wherever you are, be it underground or in the middle of a field. Quite why you’d want to work from the middle of a field, we’re not sure. But just on the off chance.

It also means you can back up your files wherever you are. So you won’t lose the fruits of all that field working you’ve been doing.

It keeps your files safe and sound thanks to two-factor authentication, and it only lets trusted devices connect to it.

One handy feature is that you can offload files to your storage, so if your phone memory is filling up, you can free up space. And it can also be worn as a necklace or a pocket watch, if you don’t fancy sporting a smartwatch. There are different straps and watch faces to choose from too.

The only downside is you’ll have to shell out for a wireless charger on top of the $169 (£109) asking price. It’s approaching its funding goal and should ship in January.
