Malmö-based startup Anima raised €1 million for its connected watch, Kronaby, which is now launching in the US. The funding came from the Chinese component manufacturer Goertek.

Kronaby watches are available in four analog models and can, among other things, control music, take pictures from a mobile phone, or save a location where the user has been. The watch alerts the wearer of phone notifactions using vibrations, and also has a silent alarm.
