MR TIME, an Apposter's wearable brand, has successfully launched its four smartwatch faces and two straps created through the collaborative efforts of MR TIME and Ducati, an Italian superbike brand, via Makuake, a crowdfunding platform(https://www.makuake.com/project/ducati_edition_strap/). MR TIME is an official licensor of Ducati. The Makuake campaign will remain open until September 27. Apposter has been an active member company of the Born2Global Centre since 2016.
The smartwatch straps are made from cowhide imported from Europe. An easy spring bar system means the straps and watch are easily attachable and removable, without the need for an assisting device. The metal ring holder and buckle, with their eye-catching Ducati logo engraving, are covered with a dual-layer coating so that even those sensitive to metal can wear them safely. The straps are certified by a nationally-accredited systems laboratory. All products are durable and high-quality as they use seraphil thread from Amann, which is used for seat covers in high-end German cars.
The smartwatch faces utilize Ducati's brand assets: the user need only enter MR TIME's exclusive smartphone app to simultaneously enjoy the benefits of the strap and digital content.
MR TIME is a global platform on which users can create their own smartwatch faces and immediately apply them to their devices via mobile means (the app has amassed a total of 2.5 million downloads thus far). Another advantage of the collaboration is that the smartwatch faces and straps are offered in a special set edition. MR TIME has engaged in multiple collaborations with global brands, having previously worked with Marymond, Astro Boy, Rilakkuma, Keith Haring, and Maison Kitsune.
MR TIME will also release products on August 1 that were created with the street fashion brand Acme De La Vie (ADLV). The special limited-edition box includes a smartwatch face, two straps, one bracelet and a griptok. Products are even more appealing because of their hidden inclusion of ADLV's new "donut boy/girl" design.
Transitioning into a global platform for smartwatch faces
Apposter's independently developed "MR.TIME" recently exceeded a cumulative total of two million downloads. Apposter is a member company of the Born2Global Centre.
MR.TIME is a global platform that allows users to easily download, create, and share smartwatch faces and designs via their smartphones in mobile or web formats. MR.TIME received an Excellence award at Korea Mobile Award 2016. Patents for the independently developed customization engine technology used for MR.TIME are currently registered in Korea and the United States.
MR.TIME “Thanks Day” Event
Until July 16, a "Thanks Day" event is being held to celebrate the milestone of two million downloads of MR.TIME. Free smartwatch face downloads were offered for those who collected a certain number of attendance check stamps, and a lottery event is being held, featuring prizes such as the Galaxy Watch Active and smartwatch straps.
Apposter CEO Sung-hyun Kyung said, "MR.TIME's recording of two million downloads prove that it is well on its way to becoming a truly global platform. Our highest-priority goal is to create a more sophisticated algorithm technology that enables individual tailoring to users as well as a system that revitalizes the market."
In May, Apposter released two MR.TIME X Maison Kitsuné smartwatch straps and three smartwatch faces, which were created through collaborations with Maison Kitsuné and Samsung Electronics (official partners of Apposter), respectively, simultaneously with the release of the Galaxy Watch Active. Apposter also actively engages in cooperative endeavors with other global brands, including Ducati, Marymond, Astro Boy, Rilakkuma, and Keith Haring.
