Blocks started as a Kickstarter project made up of 50+ team members that eventually raised more than $1.6 million USD with over 5000 supporters. Now, final retail versions of the smartwatch are available with pre-orders already open on Chooseblocks.com.

Current options include Onyx Black, Sunrise Red, and Marble White colors. Each set consists of four modules for a total of $330. Extra modules can be purchased separately including ones for battery, heart rate monitor, GPS, air pressure and humidity sensors, and flashlight for $35 each.

Shipping for buyers in the U.S. will cost $11 while everyone else will have to pay $15. First deliveries can be expected by this October according to the manufacturer.

The stainless steel modular Blocks smartwatch will be water and dust resistant, include a 400 x 400 AMOLED Gorilla Glass display, run on a Snapdragon 2100 Wear SoC, and be compatible with both iOS and Android smartphones. Check out the source for additional information and details on the hardware.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
