The Lenovo smartwatch looks a bit like the Moto 360 with a round display, right underneath it is a second screen, which acts as an virtual interactive image.

Lenovo stated that the 2nd screen removes the physical limitations of the main screen by using optical reflections to produce a virtual image (20 times larger than the watch face).

Lenovo demonstrated the 2nd display to project a photo slideshow and even play a video. Thanks to on-board sensors, the 2nd screen can act like a virtual reality system. The other benefit of a 2nd display is privacy. You can raise the wrist to eye level and watch into the 2nd screen.

This dual-screen smartwatch runs on a customized version of Android wear. It is not a product that will launch any time soon, for now it’s just a concept. As Lenovo CEO Yang Yuanqing said it’s “a journey to transfer wearables”.
