Beepers are BACK

On your wrist. In a moment I’ll get to the main function of this bracelet – but first: when you get an email, you get a notification of it on the bottom of the display. That’s it. Just like a beeper.

Also, the main function of this bracelet is to be a watch that appears to be a simple bangle, where in fact, when you run your finger through the hole, the time is displayed. Wowie!

I wonder if you, the watchmaking community, takes this as a super big major insult to your craft? Is part of designing a wristwatch making it appealing to the eye? Is there a need for an alternative?

    Not to be a sourpuss, but wouldn’t a tone and a shake from the phone in your pocket accomplish the same thing? Besides that, I fail to see how this device is different enough from current bluetooth watches.

    some sort of an explanation or showing it on the user’s arm would be quite helpful…..right now its just some amoeba in space

    functionality of the device aside, this form is downright bitchin’. I can’t stop looking at it. There’s too much minimalism in design these days, I want more balls-out aesthetics like this. that reflected wishbone frame with all those convex/concave alternating surfaces…ooh, I need a towel. I wish more of the treatment had been applied through the end of the bangle arms, though. You really loose visual energy beyond the face (just nitpicking) Modeling must have been a pill, but the result is fantastic. Keep up the good work.
