We use a 7G ERM haptic motor powered by a special haptic driver. This creates vibrations unlike in other wearables. More distinct and precise & 700% more powerful than most devices. This powerful hardware is not just a gimmick that sounds cool, but a requirement for a vibrating metronome to work.
The silicone strap and the Italian leather strap (Core Steel only) are designed for the wrist. In addition, both versions come with a body strap that allows you to wear the Core on your arm, ankle, chest, shoulder or thigh.
Fits wrists with 140mm - 210mm / 5.5 in - 8.3 in
Currently guitar, bass guitar, ukulele and violin are supported. The tuner only works with the piezo contact microphone that requires a physical connection with your instrument.
Tuning your instruments purely via audio is currently not supported.
The Pulse is our entry level product that features just a vibrating metronome. You can change the rhythm on the device, but it has no screen so for precise adjustment you have to use the companion app. The Pulse has a longer battery life, but also a much bigger size than the Core. The body strap comes not included and is available for purchase separately.
The Core doesn't just feature a vibrating metronome, but also a contact tuner, dB meter and smartphone notifications. It comes with a screen, so precise adjustments can be made right on the device. It is not just a music tool, but can also be used as your daily watch. The body strap comes included with each Core for free.
The Core Steel has the exact same features as the Core. On top of that, it's made from a premium black full stainless steel casing and besides the silicone strap, it comes with an Italian leather strap. It also includes a bonus carrying pouch.
