Sanho Corporation – manufacturer of the HYPER line of mobile accessories – announces the launch of its Kickstarter campaign for HyperLink. HyperLink is an affordable yet high quality 316L stainless steel link bracelet band for the Apple Watch. Crafted from the same 316L stainless steel alloy as the Apple Watch, HyperLink is only a fraction of the price of Apple’s offering, or the same as what Apple sells for a rubber sports band.
“We strongly believe there is no better watch band material for the stainless steel Apple Watch than stainless steel itself,” said Daniel Chin, CEO of HYPER. “Unfortunately Apple’s Stainless Steel Link Bracelet Band costs $449 which can buy you another Apple Watch Sport,” he continued. “With no huge markups or expensive corporate overheads, we hope to bring you a similar quality stainless steel link bracelet band, crafted from the same 316L stainless steel alloy as the Apple Watch for only $49. We want to make affordable stainless steel Apple Watch bands a reality!” he concluded.
HyperLink features a classic link bracelet design inspired by luxury Swiss watches, perfect for all day wear, from morning workouts to evening nights out. The bracelet is made of solid links cut from complete piece of 316L stainless steel and precision CNC milled to perfectly fit the Apple Watch, Apple Watch Sport Aluminum and Apple Watch Gold Edition. 316L stainless steel is extremely hard, scratch and corrosion resistant. HyperLink will be available for both 38mm and 42mm Apple Watch and in colors, Silver and Space Black. An additional diamond like carbon (DLC) layer is applied to the Space Black band to achieve the sleek appearance and for additional durability and scratch resistance.
HYPER is seeking $50,000 via Kickstarter to fund the HyperLink product. Funding begins August 25, 2015 at 8am PST/11am EST and ends on September 30, 2015. Upon successful funding, HYPER aims to ship the HyperLink in October, 2015. HYPER’s previous successful Kickstarter project, iStick raised over $1.1 million last June, 2014.
