Re: Battery in straps

And of course a USB plug would be integrated into the strap buckle...

The downsides to having the battery in the strap are:

- Prevents customisation of the watch by using different straps

- Limits the strap design - So NATO, leather or Milanese straps are out.

- The volume available for a battery is fairly small.
