Imagining A BlackBerry Smartwatch

It's been a while since I released a concept, so I thought I'd show everyone a watch design from September of 2014.

I don't exactly have a name for it like I usually would - so I'll let you coin it. (Comment below a name, and the most up-voted one will get an extra ticket for our launch contest)

 

Design

When I designed the watch, the premise was to base it off of everyone's favourite BlackBerry shape - the squircle. But to make something appealing, it has to conform with a traditional design in order to appeal with BlackBerry's current demographics. A crown is located to the right of the watch face, which would hypothetically function as a real watch should: changing the time and date. Of course, you could always add additional functions for it, like scrolling through menus. The interface is gesture based, and the strap should be made from genuine leather, the housing made of stainless steel. I feel the design is something both female and male professionals would be interested in wearing, which is why it uses key BlackBerry 10 elements - like its watch-face.
