2017 Red Dot Award: Product Design

2017 Red Dot Award Winner: Product Design - The Amazfit Arc, designed by Ines Bihan
The Amazfit Arc
This year, Bihan brought home another Red Dot Award for her work with the Amazfit Arc. While the Moonbeam and Equator had the distinct look of jewellry, she focused her design of the Arc on comfort, adaptability, and style. She applied a curve to the core unit, bending it around the wrist for an optimal fit.

The Amazfit Pace and the Mi Band 2
Pengtao Yu and Xiaoxi Shi have also won the 2017 Red Dot Award for their work on the Amazfit Pace Running Watch. They adapted the Pace for outdoor use: the display is crystal clear under the brightest sunlight, the ceramic bezel is scratch-resistant, and the silicone band secures the watch through vigorous activity.
The Amazfit Pace, Amazfit Arc, and Mi Band 2 will be showcased for a year in the largest museum for contemporary design, Red Dot Design Museum. In 2017, Red Dot received product design submissions from 54 countries, making it the most competitive year to date.
