Update #15

Sapphire Crystal Glass Display

Yesterday we saw the CNC'ed steel-alloy casings of TrueSmart. Today, here's a photo of the Sapphire Crystal Glass formed together with the IPS TFT Display. This is also a significant milestone for the TrueSmart production team. The successful trial run of bringing the Sapphire Crystal Glass, Touch and TFT together forming one unity, becoming one new part - the Display Unit.

If you're thinking it looks curved and hey curved display/touchscreen isn't ready yet. Very true! Look again, the screen is not curved... the main area of the glass, the touch part is flat. Only the sides have been rounded, a unique design to create the visual illusion of curve, giving TrueSmart it's elegant and slimmer feel that is different from the squary blocks look. 

This has always been the design with mineral crystal glass in mind. So when we thought of offering Sapphire Crystal Glass as a wonderful premium product upgrade stretch goal, it took quite some effort and expertise. You see, Sapphire Crystal glass is the best scratch proof which makes it harder than any other glass to cut and form shapes, let alone round the edges. The stretch goal of Sapphire Crystal Glass was only possible because of the 100% support of the Sapphire Crystal glass supplier we brought in as partners. They are certainly the leading expert in working with the Sapphire Crystal glass. And also thanks to the boom-start that everyone gave TrueSmart - the partner absolutely went that extra mile to support the stretch goal. In the years of supplying Sapphire Crystal glass, they've never rounded it before, and now they have - for TrueSmart, thanks to Kickstarter and everyone - a new creation. So here it is, the TrueSmart's Sapphire Crystal Display Unit - the best premium scratch proof.

      I meant to say curved edge for the sapphire glass in my last post. All my watches have Sapphire and it gives you a clear view of the watch dial and I have never scratched a sapphire glass in the last 20 years of wearing them.

      I mentioned anti-reflection coating that would help eliminate glare in some angles and if included that would be great too :)

      This Smartwatch keeps getting better :)

      Curved sapphire glass is a great, will give it that streamlined look. Hope it gets anti reflection on the inside of the glass for a clearer view

      @Jaskru showing just the screen from the side won't look very polished. They'll show plenty of pics from the first complete samples once the process gets there.

      Fot now, this looks great!
