A smart watch dial with multiple layers
Information on other OLED panels tend to be fuzzy and unclear when viewed with the naked eye, since the ordinary transparent media they use yield substandard crystallization. Garmin choose optical grade thin-film substrate, which, through control of crystal size, can reduce light scattering and allow for optimal light penetration, and thus improve clarity of OLED information displayed. When the OLED goes into standby mode, special rising-sun patterns and metallic texture on the dial cleverly hide the panel, making it seem to vanish from the dial, striking a perfect balance between stealthiness and display.
An ideal material, stable and controllable
Optical-grade thin-film substrate has an extremely symmetrical molecular structure and a high crystallization capability. Its surface is smooth and glossy, and is characterized by good optical transparency and weather resistance. The material at the same time features high wear resistance and hardness as well as the greatest tenacity among all thermoplastic plastics. After special processing, it can be turned into a high-tensile, transparent, heat-resistant, precision thin film with stable size.
