Sam says: This is the smart edition of my Xtal concept. People who saw it in the Design Studio Blog like the futuristic look, a combination of the simple shape and the cryptic numbers. Adding some smartness could make a good product.
I placed all LEDs under a translucent black glass with an underlying screen that shapes their light to icons and letters. The time and date telling hexagonal numbers are dominating the display. An optional pm indicator appears under the right number. I think having 24h and 12h mode selectable would be cool. Additional indicators for date/alarm and each smart function are made of three letters. They should get memorized pretty quick.
Next to each smart function you can find one or more icons or words that inform the wearer about news or performable actions. Everything smart is kept simple to read and has been placed in a big hexagon picking up the 30∞ angles. I imagine the areas above and below the display as touch sensitive buttons. That would keep a clean design. But two buttons on the right side would work too, if they are made in a similar way to the case.
I like the imagination of a clean glossy surface with nothing seen on it and the revelations of something alien looking at a touch.
