If the Nokia and Microsoft partnership continued independently as per original plans, Nokia would have unveiled their own smartwatch. After the D&S purchase, Nokia’s smartwatch project was cancelled (though Microsoft did continue to release their “band”.
The boxiness of Metro kinda fits the smaller screen of a smartwatch. I think it probably doesn’t need the label. Maybe just icons.
The circle over black kinda doesn’t work for me.
The watches also come in the splashes of Lumia colour, seen here, the orange/green/black offerings that came with the 930 and 830.
