The Google + YSL Cit-E smart backpack will go on sale on October 15. Is Cit-E really practical?

Google recently teamed up with YSL to launch a CIT-E canvas smart backpack. Internet companies plus fashion luxury brands. This list really looks like an ordinary canvas bag, a low-key black shoulder bag that is very harmonious and unobtrusive even like in Xiaomi mijia. Of course, the backpack is different. After all, the Yves Saint Laurent logo printed on the back of the backpack is worth $300, not to mention a series of cool techs elements. But this bag, it really doesn't look very practical.

All the technical elements of the CIT-E shoulder bag are closely related to the left shoulder strap of the bag. The left shoulder strap of the bag uses touch technology to respond to four postures: sliding up, sliding down, double-clicking, and covering the sensor. Each gesture can correspond to different operations, such as answering the phone, playing music, turning down the volume, and so on. These operations are supported by a tag, with a built-in electronic tag at the back of each backpack.

Before using the CIT-E smart canvas package, users must also download the Jacquard app from App Store or Google Play and match the tag of the backpack with the phone.


The label will be held in a leather bag on one side of the backrest of the CIT-E backpack. If it runs out of power, you can also charge it with a micro USB cable. Although the tag is built into the CIT-E package, the canvas bag is also likely to get wet. Although officials say the label is rain-proof and splash-proof, it is still not completely waterproof. The user's guide for the package also states that the label should be avoided from being immersed in water, so it is also important to be careful when using it.

As the first technology application launched by Jacquard by Google in the United States and abroad, this smart shoulder bag is also not cheap. A canvas shoulder bag sold for 795 euros, can only be said to be close to the luxury brand, that is, there is a high price base.


When it comes to Jacquard by Google products, we have to mention the denim jacket that Google and Levi's have been working with for years. It launched taxi-hailing services Uber and Lyft, in 2018 to allow users to do some of their functions through clothes. Of course, I still can't call for a taxi. It can only remind you that the taxi is here.


In general, you don't really want to think of the user scenarios associated with it. It makes sense to click on a cowboy coat to play the next song if it's not easy for a cyclist to switch music on his cell phone. But what would it take for me to get the news of the car from my clothes without my cell phone?


The same is true of this CIT-E canvas smart backpack, a combination of technology and fashion that looks less cool and less practical. It doesn't look as good as the rest of YSL's backpack, and it doesn't feel much extended functionally, and it's probably just brand loyalists who will pay for it.
