Phosphor E Ink watch beats Seiko to market

Watch maker Phosphor has beaten Seiko's model to market with the first watch that uses an E Ink low power display, the World Time Curved E Ink. The display consumes much less power than an LCD or LED but is still programmable to show time and date, time only, or two time zones simultaneously. It also has a very wide 180 degree viewing angle and, as expected by its nature, is much more readable in daylight.

The E Ink watch is available in several styles on Phosphor's website and through some physical stores. Retail prices for the designs vary between $150 and $205 depending on the model.

    Why segmented font?

    Why did they use that ugly segmented font? Some characters are segmented (like "1", "T" and "U"), other characters - not. Looks strange and ugly to me. I would prefer a good-looking non-segmented font, and also a "live" image of a mechanical watch face (hour, minute and second hands with ticks and numbers in a circle), as an option.
