Outline

This hybrid smartwatch embodies the "wear technology naturally" concept, bringing smartwatch functionality into the classic wristwatch aesthetic via a high-tech band. To give users less stuff to carry around, the development team handpicked three functions—e-money, activity logging, and notifications—and created a special smartphone app for visualizing things like e-money usage data. By blending the distinctive looks of an analog watch with the convenience of cutting-edge technology, the wena wrist blazes a new trail in the wearable-device market.
