Timex requested some novel ideas to improve the toughness and manufacturability of a wristwatch for the endurance athlete.  The product series is used in conditions that would destroy most wearable electronics.

Project Includes:

  • Electronics Packaging
  • Water Intrusion
  • Shock and Vibration
  • Flexible Printed Circuit
  • Display
  • Battery Powered Device
  • Injection Molding
  • Pressure Seals
  • Design for Assembly
  • Tolerance Analysis
  • Die-Casting
  • Wearable Electronics Design

Porticos Contribution

Improved Toughness

Porticos worked closely with Timex engineers to understand and quantify the types of abuse a new product would have to survive.  Then they investigated related and even competitive products to determine what solutions competitive products had implemented. Most importantly, Porticos generated several new approaches, from physical architecture to material properties that enabled a new and more rugged device.
