Posted December 2, 2014

The FES Watch prototype is completely made out of electronic paper (including watch face and the wrist band), which changes its appearance based on user gestures. The prototype includes a handful of watch faces that could easily be changed by connecting to a PC or smartphone. It comes with 24 different user selectable patterns and estimated battery life is 60 days.

The Fes Watch has been developed by a spin-off division at Sony dubbed Fashion Entertainments, which has been experimenting with E-Ink displays in a variety of objects like glasses, shoes and even bow-ties. So e-paper as a fabric is not limited to watches, it also could be applied to an E-Ink-based bow-ties, hat accessories or paper holders.

The Japanese crowdfunding project Mukuake notes that the supporters will be able to pre-order the smartwatch and receive it after May 2015.
