Sony wants to totally cover their smartwatch with e-ink display with crowdfunding.
Fashion Entertainments is a startup made by Sony and it wants to create a smartwatch with e-ink technology. To create this project they want to use crowdfunding for it.
That is stated by “The wall street Journal”. The reason for it is to see if there is enough demand for this product without having the popular name “Sony” on the watch.
The casing of the watch as well as the band from the FES Watch would get this special material. This way it would cover the total surface of the watch. With this the person who wears it could choose from 24 different designs.
Not really Smart
The look of the watch can be changed with one push on the button on the side. Although it is named a smartwatch it isn’t that smart. The reason for this is that it can actually only show you the time and change from design. So it’s more like a regular watch that can change than a smartwatch with multiple options.
The battery of the watch is really good though. It’s stated that it only need charging once every 60 days. This is 10-60 times better than normal smartwatches. But then again, other smartwatches have more options.
Its time for the video so you can actually see the idea that Sony has. We will see if they actually manage to get the funds they need for the project.
