Relax. It’s only a concept.
The Samsung Proxima is a futuristic take on the interactive watch we saw released by Sony earlier this year. A key difference between the two gadgets being that the Proxima is an actual phone, whereas the Smart View is simply a bluetooth extention to a smart phone.
Designed by Johan Loekito, the premise of the Proxima is simple; “Never Lose Your Phone Again”.
A couple of weeks ago, we featured a story on a new watch, the QlockTwo, which spells you the time instead of showing the typical hands or digital layout. We loved the futuristic but classy display, and the fact that it took a new approach at time-telling which could always become a conversation starter.
If you can’t afford the almost $300 price-tag, then there is an alternative for iPad and iPhone users, in the form of a new application which mimics the watch’s abilities perfectly.
It costs a pretty reasonable $0.99, or 69p for us in the UK, and for that price it’s certainly worth giving a go, to see if you can get a grip of the way it works before you consider emptying your life savings on the fancy QlockTwo watch or clock.
The QLOCKTWO watch by Biegert & Funk takes a new approach at telling you the time.
It ditches the arrows or digital display of most watches, and replaces it with a grid of 110 different letters. Pressing the stainless steel button displays a phrase made up of with the letters on the grid, with phrases like, “It is half past nine”.
