Tri/5/9 LED watch is deceptively simple to read. (update)

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: This is “Tri/5/9″ a back to basics 12/5/9 LED design.

I was trying to think of a simple and intuitive 12/5/9 watch and the most logical format I could think of was a triangular layout. One side for hours, one for tens of minutes and one for single minutes.

Spine: Wristwatch or futuristic weaponry?

Design submitted by Lewis from the UK.

Lewis says: The idea was to combine a simple, functional display with futuristic weapon grade design. I took inspiration from video games and films set in clean metallic futures such as Halo, Titanfall and Tron. the idea for the display came with the shape of the chassis, it needed to be long and symmetrical to make use of the space.

Relativity watch reacts to your activity level (updated)

Design submitted by Anders from Sweden & Peter from the UK.

Anders & Peter say: Time, they say, is constant … linear … consistent ~ well, everyone but theoretical physicists anyway. But the way we experience or perceive time can be anything but consistent.

2ofTWO smartwatch brings you closer to the collective.

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”

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)
