Design submitted by Yoshi from Japan.
Yoshi says: This is my e-paper watch design called “Trinity”. I chose e-paper for this design because I wanted to create something you can wrap around your wrist with a bold design.
To keep things simple I chose “segmented e-paper” this is type of e-paper similar to LCD, it has a fixed display of blocks that can be can turn on or off. In this case, triangle shapes.
The watch has a strong geometric pattern so in some ways it looks like a fashion accessory bangle.
In this watch I incorporated bluetooth technology to link with your phone, along with a built in speaker & mic.
It has all the same functions of a normal bluetooth headset.
• Answer phone
• Control music on your phone.
• Alert sounds for email, twitter etc.
As with a bluetooth headset it is your choice if you answer the phone call using your headset or your phone – so the same works with the watch. Press the “answer” button on the watch & you can speak directly into the watch while your phone is in your bag or jacket – maybe you are driving at the time.
Otherwise you can pick up your phone and take a call normally.
For music controls the phone has simple next, back & play/pause buttons.
So while you are listening to music on the train with your phone in your pocket, you can easily use these controls on the watch & leave the phone in your jacket.
The display has a positive and negative mode, so you can reverse it if you prefer.
E-paper is usually black & white only, but with a tinted glass lens on the watch we can have a selection of colours. Very easy to make, but looks great.
