The SmartArm does more than just keep your iPhone attached to your wrist. An internal mechanism releases from the armband and transforms to suit a huge range of uses. A few turns and the mount transforms into a stable tripod. A few other twists and it becomes a selfie stick.
There’s also an included pocket-clip that allows it to mount on vertical surfaces likes bags and purses.
SmartArm is universally compatible
Unlike the vast majority of smartphone accessories, SmartArm works with just about any phone with a screen size under 7″.
It’s easy to imagine some practical everyday uses for a device like this. Cyclists and drivers could have maps open and easily viewable. Chefs could have a recipe at arm’s length while keeping both hands available. DIYers could even have a how-to video open while they attempt to re-caulk the sink.
How to buy SmartArm
SmartArm can currently be pre-ordered on their Kickstarter page with a $59 pledge. That’s a 25% savings from their future retail price. If funded, orders are estimated to deliver August 2020.
