The goal was to design a modern smartwatch with a sporty and elegant aesthetic.
This research enhanced our knowledge about the impressions of shape. We looked at different products and compared their shape details to find out their shape category.
After differnt variations and iterations of shapes I settled on a single surface in form a shell, covered by a black and translucent acrylic cover.
The formlanguage expresses a shape focused on simplicity due the reduced amount of surfaces. The wristband highlights the sporty functions which aren’t obvious at the first look.
I started with 3ds max for fast 3D shape development and exported it to Alias for final shaping. After this step i switched to Solidworks for adding the technical details and creating the spline pattern of the wristband.
The final rendering was created with VRay in 3ds max for advanced shading and lighting.
