E’llipse Traveler SmartWatch 1

We’ve seen watches that double as a mobile phone before, but what designers Su Chew Lee & Paolo Di Prodi have created is the next progressive step. Dubbed the E’llipse Traveler, this minimalist piece of technology stylishly lays on your wrist, shows the time and provides mobile phone technology. Other than looking sleek, the E’llipse Traveler SmartWatch features state of the art technology including a fancy processor and the latest algorithms in human-machine learning (whatever that means). To make things even more appealing, there’s Bluetooth connectivity and integrated GPS, as well as UI widgets for time, weather or calendar.  Sure, one can list a lot of features without creating a real prototype, but the E’llipse doesn’t truly innovate until it takes that step.
