While some folks undoubtedly love the tech-centric look of smartwatch designs like Samsung‘s Gear Fit and Gear 2, as well as Sony’s own SmartWatch, Hungarian freelance designer Gábor Balogh envisions a less intrusive aesthetic with his new TRIWA-based concept. Featuring the TRIWA Havana, the design swaps out the timepiece’s standard face in favor of a circular display that shows everything from analog time and smartphone-esque call and message interfaces to a heart rate monitor, weather, music, navigation and more – all operable with the watch’s own bezel and buttons. In the future, would you prefer to see more “futuristic” and contemporary smartwatch designs along the lines of those offered by Sony and Samsung, or would you prefer to see the likes of Apple’s and Google’s long-rumored pieces to take a more classically-minded approach? Sound off below and be sure to head over to The Verge to catch further details regarding Balogh’s concept.
