British label Casely-Hayford take on the world of tech, teaming up with hardware startup Nifty for the launch of the innovative the XOO Belt. The XOO Belt charges your smartphone using a discrete micro USB-to-USB charging cable and Lithium Ceramic Polymer battery, making it super safe and durable for those busy running around days, the invisible pack pushing out 2,100mAh of power, enough to fully charge an iPhone 6. Both Apple and Android friendly, using microUSB and Lightning cable, the key is in the tech’s ability to flex and twist with the wearer without damaging the system itself. Add to that a slim-line design and lightweight feel and this new product starts to feel like a really promising prospect.

The sleek design for the series is credited to the father-son design team, setting things to either “smart” or “casual,” both options showing off the guy’s talents, with minor stylistic differences between the two black models, equally pleasing in aesthetics. Nothing is overlooked, with fine Italian leather finishing off the belt’s strap, as CEO of Nifty, Piers Ridyard describes, “not just a standard tech product but a really nice product that solves a really big problem really well.” Available to pre-order now.
