ReVault smartwatch doubles as private cloud storage

The ReVault smartwatch looks like a pretty typical smartwatch. But its main feature isn’t visible; the smartwatch has wireless local storage that acts like private cloud storage.

This storage is accessible from your phones, tablets or laptops using an app. It connects to devices via WiFi and Bluetooth. Interestingly, the ReVault watch is capable of making its own WiFi network, so you don’t even need an internet connection to upload files.

Anything you store will be encrypted, and you can set up a password and two-factor authentication for added security.

ReVault is currently seeking funding on Indiegogo. It is looking for $65,000, but has already raised $52,000. Pledge levels start at $169, which will get you a 32GB ReVault. It is expected to be shipped in January 2016.

If this is a project that catches your eye, you should note that you’ll need to buy a separate Qi wireless charger if you want to use the watch beyond its initial three-day battery life.
