    I like this concept in the way I like the concept of a hovering car. It looks wonderful. I wonder why no car manufacturer makes one. Oh wait, it's not possible. Same thing goes for this watch.

    It looks pretty and all. But what about the battery? If the screen is always on it will drain your battery. Who wants a watch that you have to wake up? What about the circular display? As far as I know low energy, high pixel density, circular displays do not exist. And about the dark interface, that won't look good in the bright outside light.

      display could activate based on movement. Similar concept to siri activating when you hold your phone to your ear.

        I understand. But how does the watch figure out if you want to look at the watch or you just use your public transport pass?
