You Have Smartphones? Here’s a Smartwatch

Sleek and minimal? Check. Large screen? Check. Oodles of tech? Check, check and check! The E’llipse Traveler is a watch to end all watches. Why? Because it has a fancy processor and the latest algorithms in human-machine learning. Yes it learns you! It knows what you want and keeps you up to date. That’s not all. ZigBee and Bluetooth modules enable indoor localization, an impossible feat for GPS. The UI is based on widgets – one for every kind; time, weather, calendar and a custom API lets developers get creative.

  • Fascinating to see –
    1) How the watch ran a full cycle – from just a time indicator to a sports stopwatch, lap timer, calendar, reminder-alarm all rolled in one; display functions including multiple chimes, phases of the moon, TV; occupying different places of the wearer’s body from hand (carriage) to pocket to wrist, neck, fingers … and finally gravitating to being just a plane time indicating wristwatch.
    2) How the cell-phone is likewise, eating into the spaces of PDA, lat-top, FM radio, smartcam, MP4 player… will we ever see a basic cell-phone again?

    It has an attractive feminine feel to it. Can you work on a masculine one? Nice job.

    it concerns me the similarity of this with the Seiko E-Ink watch… stuffing technology about how this does “everything for everyone” into a form factor created by Seiko is stretching the term “design”

      Wow, youre right! Their both bracelets. Thats totally like copyright infringement or something.

      The seiko watch is a boxy, two tone design without any hinge, as it is meant to be slid on.

      This design has clean lines, a multicolor display, and is meant to be clasped over the writs.

      Please try again.

    pretty cool.

    One thing about watches or ‘wrist devices’ that I’ve always had trouble with; after a while they irritate the skin. I rarely wear one because of this. Could you think about some way to combat that in your design?
