Chronos makes any watch smart

Chronos has a plan to make your dumb watch smart. "Chronos is a little disk that fits on the bottom of your fancy watch with micro-suction and offers notifications in the form of little blinking LEDs and vibrations," reads a report on TechCrunch.

"You can even tap your watch face to activate the device, allowing you to silence incoming calls or control music playback."

People want luxury smartwatches

Maybe a little disk for the back of your luxury watch isn't quite what people want though. Maybe people want tech-tastic-timpieces.

The announcement of the Apple Watch has sparked a global interest in the smartwatch segment, according to a new report by market intelligence firm Digital Luxury Group.

Of the 62 brands tracked in DLG's WorldWatchReport 2015, Tag Heuer got the most searches related to the keyword "smartwatch", followed by Rolex and Montblanc.

The Tag Heuer Android Wear smartwatch is due out later this year, don't forget.
