You Can Change the Design of this E-ink Watch Wherever You Wish

If the main reason of buying more wrist watches than you really need is because of your desire for design variety, then we think the e-ink powered FES Watch might just be right up your timepiece-obsessed alley. While e-ink application in watches isn’t new, this particular item designed by Japanese design studio TAKT Project takes application of this power-sipping e-paper to a whole new level by applying it to the watch strap as well. Both the watch face and the strap are independent of each other, which means you can change the design of the face and the strap individually, thus resulting in a palette of 24 designs to choose from. And being an e-ink device, this thing is a quite power-sipper too: each charge will offer you around two months of time telling. Part of the battery longevity is attributed by the incorporation of a motion sensor which turns on the watch face only when you turn your wrist to look at the watch.
