The Wove Band Reimagines the Smartwatch With Its Flexible Screen

Why limit yourself to a rigid, square screen?

By //Tech

While smartwatches are a huge leap forward for the watch form in terms of functionality, they are still fundamentally limited by their adherence to the traditional two-piece format of display and band.
