I recently purchased a SoundBrenner Core watch and after using it for a while, I’m really liking it. The watch has a tuner and metronome built into it. It can work stand-alone or it will work in sync with the SoundBrenner metronome app on your phone via bluetooth. It pulses on the beats and you can control what beats the watch pulses on, how hard it pulses, the beat sub-divisions, whether if flashes lights with the beats or not and set colors for each beat.
You can also set it up to work with your DAW to pulse the beat while recording.
It’s not perfect but they are actively working on things and providing updates. The watch updates it’s firmware through your phone using bluetooth, There have been a couple times where the watch and the app weren’t in sync and I had to re-start the app. This could also have been caused by me having too much open on my phone at the time but overall I find that it’s quite good.
I probably use it stand-alone more than I do with the app.
A little gimmicky? and little gadgety? Perhaps, but it works and I like having a metronome and tuner with me at all times… I guess I’m a gimmicky, gadgety type of person
Here’s the link to their website if anyone wants to check into them more. You may find it useful as well.
