概要

This is a wristband-type wearable device that measures physical activity levels. By tracking the user's movement and checking the calories burned, steps taken, distance traveled, etc., this activity tracker not only records the user's exercise activities but also motivates the user to greater performance. Also when linked to a smartphone, the user can check incoming calls and messages, etc. on the band and use it to play music on the smartphone.

デザインコンセプト

Emphasizing dynamic curves, the design is intended to look both sporty and fashionable when worn.

背景

As more and more people are getting interested in watch-type and band-type wearable devices, people are also exploring new ways of using such devices. There is also an increasing interest in lifelogging, the monitoring and recording of everyday activities. To satisfy these desires, LGE proposes Lifeband Touch which is an innovative wearable device with fitness capabilities.

デザイナーの想い

A healthy urban lifestyle requires a certain amount of exercise. We wanted our device to actively motivate the user to exercise and yet look great as a fashion item as well, so that the user would not simply be seen as a health-obsessive.

企画・開発の意義

This design started with an appreciation and understanding of today's urban life. As an asymmetrical, iconic and classy fashion item, we wanted the design to blend well both with business attire and casual wear. We also wanted the device to track everyday activities and record accurate data, so that the user is motivated to maintain and improve physical exercise.

創意工夫

We designed the product with no binding mechanism and left one side of the band open in order to provide comfort to the user, instead of the unpleasant feeling of wearing a bulky and tight band. Even without a buckle, the flexible band wraps nicely around the wrist and provides smarter usability. The opening of the band also considers the ergonomic aspect of avoiding pressure on the wrist bones. For optimal wearability, we decided to build the entire device no thicker than 10 mm and considered all elements of layout and functionality accordingly. As a result, we had to use a curved battery and over-molding technique for a waterproof structure. The eye-catching LED lighting circle appeals to the emotions and displays information clearly.
