Hybrid Smartwatch Design

This smartwatch design combines the old and new, with analog watch hands sitting on top of a modern display. A hole is punched through the middle of the screen, allowing the gears for the watch hands to pass through. This approach would be similar to punching a hole in a smartphone display for a camera (more on that concept here).

There would only be a few on-demand features for the display, such as the calendar, notifications, heart rate, and stopwatch. I didn’t want it to host apps, because the goal is to use the digital screen as little as possible; hopefully it would only need to be charged once a month (the watch hands would use a separate battery or wind-up feature).

This hybrid watch ensures the time is always displayed, and it only serves up information when called upon. With infrequent charging, it could be a gadget that needs little upkeep, just like an old watch.
