ORSTO™ Design Testing.

Design Testing is the most important aspect of the design and development process of any new product.


A product can be made to ‘look’ as if it would provide all of the necessary functions required, but, due to design flaws and unsuitable materials, the reality could be that the product does not perform as it should.


We have a structured approach to our testing strategy and production

systems, following ISO/BS/CE/FCC/SGS/Asian Inspection/United Kingdom and European guidelines.


Our testing strategy includes several important phases, based on risks and quality characteristics, which ensures that accurate results are obtained from a thorough set of suitable testing procedures.


The list below highlights some of the comprehensive design testing procedures that are carried out on each ORSTO Hybrid SmartWatch design.



Our comprehensive testing on all Watch models includes:


  • Water Resistance Testing (up to a staggering 200 metres depth on our diver watches).
  • Plating Abrasion, Fineness, Thickness, Corrosion and Adhesion Testing.
  • Casing Wear, Scratching and Impact Testing.
  • Nickel Release Testing.
  • Magnetic Resistance Testing.
  • Shock and Vibration Testing.




  • Artificial Perspiration Testing.
  • Movement Time Accuracy Testing.
  • Adhesive and Gasket Testing.
  • Wrist Strap Abrasion, Wear, Tension, Torsion, Perspiration (Sweat), Humidity, Water Risistance, Saltwater, and UV Rays Testing.
  • Band Traction and Torsion Testing.
  • Package Moisture Testing.



ORSTO™ Quality Assurance.

Quality Assurance (Product Quality Control) should be the main pillar of any brands development plans and policies.


We understand that there should never be a compromise on quality control of the products being produced.

This ensures a reliable consistency of product quality, enhancing the confidence in the brands new and existing customers and maintaining important brand loyalty.


What does ORSTO™ Mean ?





O.R.S.T.O. is the method by which a human operator interacts with the hardware and software of a mechanical or electronic device and the resultant function/s performed by the device. (O.R.S.T.O. System was the created in 1985 during the infancy of computer controlled machines, by world renowned and respected design engineer and Orsto Ltd CEO Paul Gill, to simplify and make easier the interaction between machine and operator).


O  OPTION = The user selects from pre-defined options, the function that he/she would like O.R.S.T.O to perform.


R  REACTIVE = O.R.S.T.O reacts to this request and converts it into a language that the system can understand.


S  SYSTEM = The System, on receiving this information, chooses the combination of technologies required to perform the requested    function.


T TECHNOLOGY = The technologies chosen by the system, work together to perform the function requested.


O  OUTPUT = The function is performed.
