Just find some similarities between my smart watch concept design and 2 smart watches (Moto 360 Sport and Samsung Gear S2) in the market recently (Oct. 2015). I have done my concept in June 2014.
And I also showed my smart watch concept in NYC Media Lab Summit 2014, Behance, Dribbble, introduced to some Googlers, and listed in ADAA 2015 semifinalist. I guess my effect is not strong enough to effect these two major brands. But they are good examples to show my concept is practical as well.
I came up this concept because I wanted to explore what kind of features a smart watch could perform better than a smart phone. Below is the best parts of this concept.
Button‘s location (more intuitive and easier for pressing)
Infographic (information hierarchy) and interaction improvement for workout feature.
Samsung Gear S2,
