Nokia patents its own smart watch, or is it a bracelet?

The product pipeline of Nokia is pretty much in Microsoft's hands now, but before the buyout was announced, the Finns have apparently been working on a smartwatch of their own, keeping it trendy with the Android and iOS peeps...

What I make out of this patent? Nokia's form factor will either be highly criticised (more probable) or would be a redefening point for smartwatches.

Those are the only two things that can happen to smartwatches at this point, Captain Obvious.

Looks painful, I feel like my skin might get pinched between the sections.

I wonder if your first post, was as meaningless, and misspelled as your second.

If there is a solid backing behind the segments (such as a strap), your skin won't be able to get through.

Doesn't seem comfortable. Having more displays is more room for damage. I actually like putting my hand on a desk or laptop while working. I don't want to worry about my watch killing my wrist while doing so.
Nokia is an amazing company, but this seems a like a stretch too far. MS influence on Nokia devices doesn't sound too good if they come out with stuff like this.

Definitely looks the best out of all, hopefully it'll be introduced at Nokia world and we get to buy this for Christmas time!

Seems like a great alternative to what's out there already. Girls won't want to wear a large watch just so it can do everything, so a stylish bracelet is kind of neat. It could also be worn on the other arm if you want to wear your fancy piece of expensive Swiss gears on your clock-arm.
