Fastrack’s latest introduction to the smart category is the new feature-packed Reflex Wav, targeting the 15 to 25 years age group. This band uses a simple gesture of twisting your wrist to bring alive the thought of — It’s all in your hand. The launch film uses horror to bring out a very cutting-edge technology in a light and Fastrack manner.

The objective is to bring alive the latest technology of using gestures to control your music, click pictures and reject calls. It adds to the brands tech credentials by promoting the slimmest smart band with a gesture control and creating awareness about the latest product in Fastrack’s smart band line up — The Reflex Wav.

The film is set in an eerie campsite by the lake. The key protagonist, the girl, uses an Ouija board to call a spirit. The group of friends around are very sceptical initially about the presence of a spirit around. She seamlessly uses the gesture of twisting her wrist to change the music on her phone placed on a dock. The constant switching of songs adds to the eeriness of the surrounding. It makes the group of friends, especially the male protagonist, believe the presence of something supernatural around and he instantly reaches for the girl for comfort. She smartly uses the gesture feature of Reflex Wav to prank her friends and is very successful at the end of it. The ad brings out the gesture control feature of the new Fastrack Reflex Wav in a funny and light manner.
