A smartwatch that wraps around the wearer's wrist with 6 displays.

Cross an Apple iPod Nano with a bangle bracelet, and you might get something like the Nokia Facet that recently received a patent. Proving to the world again that smartwatches are probably the worst inventions out there, this bizarre Nokia concept for a multi-display wrist accessory won't be mass produced anytime soon (hopefully).

Several versions of Facet have been produced, each better (or worse) than the last. The six different displays of the wrist watch are touch-sensitive, and allows wearers to switch between apps with a swipe of the finger. To view different screens, wearers can either turn their wrists or touch the bracelet to change the panel's positions.
