Circular screens that become common in smart watched encourage to explore digital design beyond the boxy screens we have been used to. Amoled technology allows only to highlight pixels that we need allowing for minimalistic energy efficient stylish interface.

This would be slower the seconds arrow but faster then minutes arrow, reflecting the movement of time in different terms and impacting perception of time.
