In order to make the watch as thin as possible, there are no buttons or knobs on the watch itself. All operations and adjustments are done via the included base station, through which the watch is charged too.

The CST-01 weighs less than 12 grams. Because of the comfort, weight and thinness, it is very possible to forget that you wear it until you need to see what time is it.

The device is powered by micro energy cell (MEC). Developers state that the battery can last for 15 years and can be recharged 10,000 times. The watch can be charged in 10 minutes and it is expected to be able to function for a month before the next charge. The MEC contains no toxic chemicals or heavy metals providing safety while being eco-friendly.
