Design submitted by Firdaus from Malaysia.
Firdaus says: My watch design this time is a bluetooth watch with focus on broadcasting synced information and updates from smartphone: This can include; Email (from & subject), message, incoming call, Facebook notification, tweet, subscribed news (headline), to do list etc…
The watch features simplicity in term of design and technology adequate for broadcasting simple information in form of text. This watch design uses segmented LCD with EL back-lighting and 5 LED indicators each for every broadcasting function selectable by user. There will be a smartphone companion app to allow user to change which info to appear for each line. When bluetooth sync is enabled, the watch will automatically broadcast latest updates respectively. The broadcasted information scroll in loop. When there’s new update, the LED indicator will blink and the new info will overwrite the previous one. When bluetooth sync is disabled, the watch will only show time or along with date.
The broadcast watch is simply useful for user to be keep updated without having to swap the phone every time. There is time like when driving, meeting, dating, during lecture, dining etc. when the phone is wisely kept in pocket. The watch will stylishly blink and user can view what update at a glance.
The principle of this watch is simplicity and just for broadcasting purpose. The design is simply as it’s function. Simply that. Not complicated.
