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”
The basic premise for my design is that the borders of the icons tell the time in an always-on column on the display. 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)
The date can be viewed in the same manner by pressing the “B” button in time telling mode. The time and date can be shown in three styles:
“Easy” which uses the borders and centres of icons to show the time in traditional digits.
“Medium” which is the same as easy mode minus the centres of the icons. This is more cryptic than the easy mode and can be used when navigating through the icons in other modes.
“Difficult” this mode uses three icon rows, the main time telling row and the borders of the rows either side. This is the most cryptic and striking of the three.
When a notification arrives the appropriate icon is highlighted on the far right of the display and the icon’s dots flash along with LEDs in a transparent strip on the right-hand side of the watch (as well as the vibration and audio alert etc)
The notification icons are hidden when not in use as a default but the wearer would have the option of showing these icons always on also.
When the notification arrives the row perpendicular to the notification icon can be highlighted, this could be manually done or automatically (optional). The row would have all the appropriate icons related to that main icon (e.g if the phone is ringing the phone call icon is highlighted along with the options icons: end call, silence etc) This is not dissimilar to the OS on the Sony PSP. The icon currently selected is inverted to contrast it from the others in that row.
When the row is highlighted be-it automatically or manually the wearer can scroll through and activate the options with the “A” and “B” button.
When the call is over the LEDs would stop flashing continuously and flash every “x” mins there after until cleared via the watch or phone.
The icon row can be scrolled through at any time by the wearer using the “A” and “B” buttons.
Some of the rows include icons that can be activated, these icons have dots that are displayed when the feature is turned on. To turn one of these features on or off the “A” button is held on when that icon is highlighted. The LEDs on the right hand side could flash or progressively light up to show that a feature is “loading” or “being activated”. Pressing the “B” allows normal navigation to resume.
The music and camera controls can be accessed via either the on screen icons using the “A” and “B” buttons or the physical buttons on the sides of the watch.
When navigating through the icons the time can be shown or hidden depending on the wearers preference. This layout has spare icons which could be used for extra functions in the future.
The watch includes a backlight which could be set to come on when notifications arrive or when the wearer presses the camera button when not in camera mode.
This design includes a capped usb charging port on the right hand side of the watch, next to the camera button.
