We've seen various concepts for smartwatches over the last few weeks — everything from Apple iWatch designs to those that are sporting Google's Android Wear. What I love to see are the designs that are unique and original, the newest of which is Span.
Span sports a split movement — hours on top, minutes on bottom. A metal screen sits between the two and shows off notifications for phone calls, reminders and other notifications. A quick tap of the world clock moves the hands to show the time elsewhere in the world. The band itself also blends in with the watch face when not lit, making it less obvious that you're rocking a smartwatch. In contrast to devices like the Moto 360, the Span would be less power hungry and also not a full-time, in-your-face smartwatch.
