This smart watch design from Heather features all the convenient ‘smart’ functions such as; play music, message notifications, check-in, control phone camera (for selfies ;-) ) but with a more traditional & tasteful case design so it doesn’t look too out of place during your daily life. The primary idea is designed for women & the display compliments the jewellery feeling of a ladies watch – but there is a mens option too featuring a more masculine case & strap. It is an LCD watch & has regular digits with a twist.
Peter says: This design is inspired by the reflector and lens units found in torches/flash lights or LED lighting units. This shape has a modern and futuristic feel with an industrial purposeful look. I wanted to transmit this look into an analogue watch design.
Firdaus says: Personally speaking, I have get my hand a Sony android smart watch that cost $100. Pretty decent for an OLED watch. I also aware of Pebble watch and other smart watches that pretty decent functioned and priced. When first time I get info about Tf making a segmented LCD or LED smart watch, I ask myself, how to make the smart watch compete with other decent watches available out there? How to make it is worth it to have a watch with this limitation. How to justify the price tag?
Sam says: I like minimalistic analog watches. They are so relaxed and can look so styslish. So I sketched for a simple but still diversified pair of watch hands. For this watch concept I am using two transparent foils with cleverly placed free zones and imprinted gradients, both placed above a plain white background that could be lit up, if technically possible.
Pater says: Some time ago I did a couple of co-ops with Sam called “Origami” and “Mugen-Kido” which both shared a body and strap consisting of folded strip material. I wanted to re-use that principle in a more subtle futuristic manner than would have a TF old school feel.
Logan says: The watch colors are inspired by the amber, green, and white monochrome monitors from the early days of personal computing. The strap is like gray ribbon cables. The square shape — a CPU. Overall, the design is meant to evoke nostalgia for the vintage computing experience. Even people who did not live through it have seen it in countless movies and TV shows, and associate that imagery with classic computer cool.
