This flexible watch design by Jacob Rynkiewicz is ideal for active lifestyles. Coiled like a colorful telephone cord, the Nike Citrus's strap requires no buckle, clasp or hook. The watch can be easily slipped on and off, but due to the material and angling of the coiled strap, it will not slip off your wrist.

The design was originally made for the visually impaired. The Nike Citrus's watch face is concave with no glass screening. The clock lets you feel for the hour and minute hands. Not to mention, the spirally strap gets rid of any hassle since it is extremely easy to put on. The design was inspired by twisted orange peels, hence its name "Nike Citrus."
