Rotating Display Enables Switch Between Watch and Fitness Band

Photo credit: Pocket LintUK-based Pratech’s smartwatch, called UB, has a rotating display. It was shown at the recent Wearable Technology Show in London. The device is currently a prototype, and fairly chunky according to Pocket Lint. There is one button, which turns the 1.8″ colour touchscreen LCD display (300 ppi) on and off. The display can pivot 90°, the idea being that users can choose between a fitness band and a widescreen smartwatch. A secondary 0.95″ display, which sits below the main screen, is intended for notifications. The watch can also exchange information through a handshake or fist bump. According to Pratech the 550mAh battery will last for up to two days. A Kickstarter is planned for Q2/Q3.
