Enclosure Design Contest & Even More Watch Faces

Our enclosure design is well under way. We’re also happy to open the community enclosure design contest. Submit for a chance to win one of our prizes!

3D Printed Stainless Steel Prototype

As we’re working on the aluminum enclosure design for Watchy, we wanted to get a sense of how a metal enclosure would look and feel, so we took to Shapeways and 3D printed the "dos" enclosure in stainless steel! It weighs a hefty 100 grams (2.5 times that of aluminum!). In our next few prototypes, we will start producing them in CNC anodized aluminum. Stay tuned!
