The watch looks simple and both its face and the band are made of e-paper, so when you change the watch style, the band also changes to match.

It is not clear whether the smartwatch will have a backlight, as e-papers produces no light of their own.

The project page says that the watch weighs 50g and has a 40mm dial, with a depth of about 7mm. The battery life is 60 days and may start shipping by the summer of 2015.
