Wrist (1) fan-made concept renders showcase the sort of offbeat product that Carl Pei's Nothing clearly should embrace
It doesn’t seem unreasonable to think that the next product to roll out from the design studio at Nothing might be a smartwatch. Designer Gian Luigi Singh has come up with a group of concept renders for such a device, which he has unsurprisingly named wrist (1), following on from Nothing calling its earphones ear (1). While the smartwatch certainly looks striking from some angles, its thickness will likely divide opinion.
Singh has decided that his version of a Nothing wrist (1) watch will have IPX4 water resistance, so it would be protected from splashes of rain. In addition, this device comes with Wear OS, which would be handy for a user to sync Google apps from a smartphone, and it apparently features typical health-related functions you would expect to find on a modern smartwatch, such as a heart-rate tracker. This concept device comes in a single size of 38 mm by 10 mm.
Of course, the wrist (1) would connect without issue with the ear (1), and then there’s the transparent case to marvel at. The designer has given the potential Nothing smartwatch clear sides on the case, so users can see everything that is going on in the inside. It has left the device with very chunky sides, but there are plenty of people who like a watch with some heft, and this wrist (1) has the bonus of its transparency talking point.
