Elbit Military smart watch


Elbit Systems initiated a smart watch for defense troops, geared with military applications that improve command and control. The watch also eliminates misidentification and friendly fire incidents, by enabling better navigation and communication. ... Read More We were approached to complete the initial design of this military wearable technology, given several fixed form factors, including a relatively large rectangular screen. Styling focused on rugged with a hint of sleek, adding two buttons in a way that balances the preliminary design parameters. Our research into the required human engineering determined that the wrist strap be positioned at the far end of the large screen (not at its center), leaving most it free for more flexible arm and hand movement. We developed a special inset to hook the strap onto the screen mold, added a safety band, repositioned the electrical card and mechanics to fit well with the design, and improved the interference elements between all the different parts. This special watch was packed under extremely tight schedules, and made into operational prototype models for further testing in the field before manufacturing.
