How to control a device with a Kronaby smartwatch with IFTTT #IoT #IFTTT
Via Mike Diamond on What I Made Today, a look at a special breed of watch that incorporates the characteristics of a regular watch (digital or analog), with select functions of the Smart Watch.
The hybrid smartwatch that caught my attention was the small Swedish company, Kronaby. They specialize in beautifully-designed analog (hybrid) smart watches that radiate prestige, while quietly synchronizing with your phone. They offer multiple functions – applied through their simple, easy-to-use and equally well-designed app.
This post is for general interest, but may be most useful to the Kronaby owner who wants to know what their IFTTT function is, and how to use it with their watch.
The article goes in-depth on input and output to the watch via the IFTTT interface.
There’s almost no limit to the Applets available in IFTTT. You can open your garage door, get alerts when the cat moves in a room, turn on a light when the sun goes down. Almost anything you can imagine. Being able to trigger so many things with the Kronaby is great fun.
