The Diesel On smartwatch is a combination of rugged looks, suave styling and tech savvy features that is aimed at those who living on the edge
Smartwatches are thought of by many as geeky little devices that just give smartphone notifications in your wrist. Most companies chose to turn them into blingy fashion accessories, leave it to a brand like Diesel to take a smartwatch and turn it into a device meant for who like living on the edge. The Diesel On smartwatch takes the bland smartwatch design that looks shiny and fragile, and adds a dash of ruggedness to the whole thing.
With the Diesel On smartwatch, the fashion maker has taken the traditional styling cues from aviator and dive watches, and merged with the latest in technology to create a watch that is meant for those who are all about breaking norms. The Diesel On, is a watch for the adventurer, the explorer, and those who love to break stereotypes and go beyond what is expected. It’s no wonder that Diesel chose to go with the tagline, “Go with the Flaw.”
With its circular display and metallic case, the Diesel On looks tough enough to take on the world and still walk away with nary a scratch. Unlike some smartwatches that have a ‘flat tire’ look for the display, the Diesel On offers a completely round display that not only looks cool, but also looks more like a traditional watch. Further, the strap on the watch can be switched within a matter of minutes. So if you think that a leather strap would suit your look better than a metal one, you are free to do so.
The case and straps of the Diesel On aren’t the only things that you can customise. Since the watch face is essentially just a screen. You have the freedom to choose a dial from multiple options. On top of this, you have the freedom switch between multiple dials anytime. After all, why should you stick to the same ol’ boring routine?
Of course, Diesel hasn’t forgotten that it’s a brand whose history lies in the outdoors. That’s why the Diesel On comes with fitness tracking feature that encourages you to go out and have your own adventure. The watch is capable of recording the steps you took, and the calories you burnt. So you can have a mental target for the next day and can strive to break your own record.
That isn’t all. The watch also comes with interactive effects that takes the awesomeness of the Diesel On to the next level. With Weather Mode on, the watch gives you a visual cue of the weather you can expect that day. Extremely important if you are planning to go out for a hike, or planning to cruise down the road on your motorcycle.
With the Diesel On, being a couch potato is no longer an option. Turn on activity more and the longer you stay inactive, the more dust the watch face gathers. So if you want to remove the dust, you will have to get off the couch and move.
When you are in the middle of something important, the last thing you would want is to be disturbed. With Do Not Disturb mode on, the watch will cease disturbing you with notifications. Instead, the screen will show a cracked effect to let you know that there is a notification that you need to take a look at.
Of course, Diesel On is still a smartwatch and as such you still get the suite of standard feature you’ve come to expect from smartwatches. This includes the ability to get notifications for calls and messages and control your music. It can even show reminders of birthdays and events on your wrist. The Diesel On runs on Google’s Android Wear platform and is compatible with not just Android-powered devices, but also Apple iPhones. So it doesn’t matter, which smartphone you might be using, you should be able to pair the watch to your phone with no difficulty.
Thanks to a combination of rugged looks, suave styling and tech savvy features. The Diesel On is a smartwatch that is perfect for those who live on the edge and prefer to make a statement with their actions.
