(English) 2ofTWO smartwatch brings you closer to the collective.

March 14th, 2014
2ofTWO-004

(English) Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: The name is “Borgy” in origin, as the watch will be linked to a smart phone creating a small collective. The phone will be “1 of TWO”

This column is easily seen as it is displayed inverted to the rest of the display and continues a contrasting stripe that runs through the strap. (I have used a metallic LCD with black background for my examples. This used in conjunction will coloured glass gives a nice contrast)
