The original watch design by hop-picker — now on your Pebble!

I am proud to publish my Pebble version of this amazing watch design, which is just beautiful due to its simplicity, and already go a lot of attention, f.i. on reddit.

I fine-tuned it in cooperation with the original author, Konstantin Pulyarkin alias hop-picker, and I believe the result is really amazing and elegant.

Design Considerations

Quarters or Ten-Minutes Ticks?

You will notice that we finally chose to make the ticks correspond to intervals of 15 minutes instead of 10 minutes as in Konstantin’s original design. Konstantin chose the 10-minutes intervals because they help reading at higher accuracy, while I argued that it is more intuitive to have segments that resemble quarters of an hour – as we are used to talk about time in quarters, especially when thinking of analog clocks. Besides, on the Pebble, thicker lines look better, which is an additional reason to use less (but slightly thicker) ticks. Visually comparing it to traditional watch faces, we could not find strong evidence backing one or the other option, so we finally settled on what seemed more intuitive. Continue reading →

This design shows a soft transition from the circle defined by the hands to the rectangular shape of the screen.
A somehow classic and very calm look, I believe.
Or, if you like, an allusion to the soft border of the good old crt tube 😉

This design has no outer border, instead it seems to extend to infinity, touching the edge of your Pebble’s screeen. Again, I made a black and a white version, use them as you prefer depending on the color of your Pebble!

Less is more

The zooming watchface in a reduced design.

I believe it looks quite elegant, the black version on a black Pebble or Pebble Steel, and the white version if you are wearing a white Pebble.

Same benefits (more watch per screen size, better reading, new look) as the original design.

The Zooming Watch Face No.1

A watch face for your Pebble

A dynamically zooming (panning) watch face

This is my first watch face for the Pebble smart watch, and I called it Zoom1.

What I had in mind, and why the dial is not centered:

  • Analog watches are nice
  • Make it big – looks better, and ease (or: increase accuracy) reading the minutes
  • Think out of the box / create an unusual look

What it does:

  • Looks nice (I believe) 😉
  • Depending on current time, zooms in on an the minutes hand (well, to be precise, it’s actually panning).
  • Shows time, day of week and date (that’s a great feature, isn’t it?)

On your mobile phone (iPhone or Android phone), tap one of the below banners to launch the Pebble app and install the watchface:

I am delighted that Zoom1 is now featured on PebbleReviews by Mark Reed,
and is among the first 10 in Best of Pebble October 2013 (and the best-placed pure-watchface app)!


Big thanks to everyone for the great feedback I have received so far (including a message from Eric Migicovsky — thanks Eric for bringing us this awesome smart watch!)
