The result is what project originator Central Standard Time claims is the world’s thinnest watch at 0.8 mm, one that dispenses with traditional straps and clasps with its bangle design. Unfortunately, the slim profile makes for some compromises.

We examine the effect of swapping components on a reliability importance measure for the specific components, and we also consider the joint reliability importance of two components. Such swapping of components may be an attractive means toward more resilient systems and could be an alternative to adding more components to achieve redundancy of repair and replacement activities. Swapping components, if possible, is likely to incur some costs, for example for the actual swap or to prepare components to be able to take over functionality of another component.
