Design submitted by Peter from the UK.
Peter says: This is “HUD” which stands for “Heads up Display”.
Watches utilising a transparent display are a popular concept and always have a futuristic look. The trouble with most of these concepts is that they dont fully utilise the transparency of the display, unless you like to admire your wrist through the display.
I decided it would be nice to be able to look through this transparent display, like a “heads up display” giving the technology more purpose.
The time telling method is a conventional digital format and could include day, date etc and any other information that would be deemed useful. When the watch is orientated into a horizontal position the display flips so it can be viewed form the opposite side, for when it is connected to the supplied headset. The display features bluetooth connectivity so it can show other information via a smartphone or sat nav such as location or directions.
The display also features an eyelet for a supplied cord so the watch can be worn like a pendant.
The bracelet can be worn as jewelry when the display is removed and has a reserve battery for when the time display battery runs low. The bracelet also features a backlight and charging facility.
This design has a versatility that will hopfully appeal to a range of people. The styling had a futuristic feel which will appeal to those who like sci-fi. The option to wear as a pendant may appeal to the style concious and the option of wearing as a headset may appeal to the cyborgs amoungst us.
This concept stands out from others due to the variety of wearing methods, use of transparent display and heads up capability.
