Welcome to your Kickstarter Project of the Week series, where we show you the coolest crowdfunding projects we can find. We know there’s plenty of cool stuff out on Kickstarter, but there’s also a lot of products that leave us scratching our heads. Is today’s featured product worth your precious time and money? Let’s find out!

Today we are taking a look at a product from a company that is already very well positioned in this industry – TYLT. You likely know them for their wireless chargers and cables, but this time around they are doing something a little more special – the TYLT VÜ Pulse for Pebble Time.

Other Kickstarter projects:

TYLT enters the wearable space with a cool accessory made for the Pebble Time and Pebble Time Steel smartwatches. It has two main functions, but these are features that many of you will be very glad to see coming to your Pebble Time.

The Pebble Time is a bit simplistic. It has no bells and whistles, which is probably part of the reason why the company decided to leave wireless charging and a heart-rate sensor out of the watch.

The TYLT VÜ Pulse works pretty much like a case, which connects to the pins on the back of the Pebble Time. Once installed, you can simply place your watch on any Qi wireless charger to juice up. In addition, the case has an integrated heart-rate monitor that can sync your biometrics to your phone and activity tracking apps.


Interested? You can back the project over at the TYLT VÜ Pulse Kickstarter page. The lowest early bird special was set at $39, but right now you can get the accessory for as low as $44.

TYLT has already reached its funding goal, so it’s just a matter of waiting until August for shipments to begin. Who is signing up?
