Hi Anders,
Thanks for advise.
The over all appearence is not harmonious to you, do you think it work if we change the color or add some symbol?
How about changing screen to round? Or it needs to add more button or change the placement?
Let's brainstorming to come out best idea.

Sincerely,

Geoffrey
I still don't really know what's bugging me with the over all appearance but it seems like everybody else likes it so don't waste to much energy on one man's concern. :). It might just be being traditional. I'm brought up with the fact that analog watches have round shapes, digital are squared-rectangular.  ???  (And i am getting used to it the more i look at it.)

When it comes to your other questions: NO! Don't go Suunto and make the display round. Square-rectangle is way better. When it comes to buttons I assume that your engineers have good reason to strip the watch down to 4 buttons. for usability I still support the frontbutton.

Oh, and the bigger display, the better. :-)

Best regards
Anders

Sorry guys, I just received the high resol pic but can't really play with it until the middle of next week.
Altought I did this rapidly:

I am trying to figure out what is on the pic below that is not on the new 595 watch: can you?

The upper and lower side of the screen are a little rounded, or it is the bumbed/flat rim?

Hi all,

I like the rounded display much more than the original one:
 

And I also like the "Full LCD" versions shown in the posting of canadien. It gives me the feeling, that
there isn't so much wasted space.
However - I'm not sure, if it will be possible to use the extra space of a larger display in an efficient way.
For sure it would need some complete new ideas for splitting the display into different areas.

Regards, Hubert

Full lcd looks best for me also, I hope it is possible.
Usually as much you can show lcd, it looks better, alought there is not fully used whole space.

My opinion is that a squared/rectangular display is better. A round one offers a bigger area than a rectangular but not a bigger area that can be used anyhow (well maybe to in a simple way display batterypower and gpscontact.) I don't think the part of a watch that is not the display is waste, this is the place for logo (and frontbutton offccourse  ;) ....here I go again...)

@Canadien: Nice work so far!

Anders

Hi Rookie,


To reserve fake space to compromise full disply is nice, just one challenge there: The background color is little different to active and non-active area. Let's keep discussion before we start project. ;)

Hi Anders,

It seems Canadien's idea is not bad! Neutral solution.

Yes it's garmin 110. Other one I don't know I think compass whatever.

Here is one of my idea quickly done. Will play later with color.
My idea is to offer the option to display or not the time of the day at the bottom of the screen without encroach on the activity areas.

Handful for long activity ex:ultratrail, ironman, outdoor expedition, etc.

Hello Canadien,

Looks good, the time is a good feature there, I and rest of Europe likes the 24 hour model better so 13:24. But this can be cleared in configuration ;).
And in navigation it good give Speed ore HRM instead :D. If this is a more separate permanent field it gives a lot of options. 8)

Albert

Canadien,
I really like this idea, especially with clock on bottom.
Can you test it with carbon backround instead of pure black?
