Should Nokia put official Nokia logo on its watches?

When you check the Nokia Health official page, and browse through the products page, you will notice that phone models have changed. Nokia is not using Apple iPhone anymore, but rather beautiful Nokia 3. Well, it is logical to use your own product to advertise others, and now Nokia can do it with ease. But when you go to Steel HR or any other Nokia branded smart watch you will notice something odd there. Check out the photo of Steel HR and Nokia 3. That Nokia logo on Steel HR just isn’t right. It looks like it doesn’t belong there. Those are not classic Nokia letters that we used to watch on numerous phones and accessories made by Nokia. I replaced the Nokia logo with official one and it looks so much better.

I know that you cannot use the same letters in watches, and that there must be more visible ones. But, standard Nokia logo on any watch just looks more proper. What do you guys thing, which logo would you like to see on Nokia watches? Do leave a comment :).

    Yes!

    No I think what they have is better. The classic logo is thicker and does not go well with the design of Steel HR

    • Yeah. πŸ™‚ They can use the classic logo at the back of the watch πŸ™‚

  • God of chaos

    I like it the way it is now. It’s more elegant and understated than the classic, blocky Nokia logo. I feel like the typeface they’ve chosen is more appropriate for a watch than the classic logo.

    • I just improvised and didn’t give much attention to details when made that logo, so probably some designer would have made it better πŸ™‚

      • Can you remake the old Nokia logo with round “O” in it?? Don’t use Nokia font on “O” just make it bold.

  • Rocky

    Maybe if they make the O letter on the new one a bit square (just like traditional Nokia logo), it would look better

    • Yes!

      Or, keep a round o for a round circular watch, and implement a more square o for a square or rectangular watch.

      It’s all about asthetics …

      Imagine a Nokia N8, cut in half, with a rectangular wide 1.25″ Γ— 1.5″ AMOLED screen, running either a tuned down version of Android (in order to make it more battery efficient), or better yet, running a tuned up version of my beloved Symbian (with the ability to access the play store). Putting in a modified Symbian operating system, with a sub 3 inch screen, and a 1000-1500 mAh battery, would yield an extraordinary battery life. Also, no lag, not even after 2 years of usage. You could keep Nokia sleeping screen on for probably 12 days straight without charging. (For others, you may know this as something like what Samsung calls always on display). Symbian was truly ahead of its time…

      Think about it…

      (Isn’t Samsung doing this on their watches?)

      • Even i was thinking the same. For round and analog watches stick to this font and if they make a full touch smartwatch or a watch of rectangular shape or a sporty looking watch go with old Nokia logo. πŸ™‚

          Not yet buddy.
          I’m half a day behind you.
          In about 4-7 hours I’ll probably do it.
          Gotta run some errands real quick.
          But again, thanks for recommending this site and helping me out.

        Nokia won’t make that, Nokia says that their health product will focus on medical grade product, not just an ordinary gadget.
        Yeah, those sleeping screen, double tap to wake, wireless charging, Nokia technology always ahead, but almost every tech web reference it to others like Samsung for always on display, LG for double tap

        • But if Nokia at their launch events keeps saying facts that they were the 1st to use double tap to wake, they were the 1st to use Glance. We introduced it. Then no media will reference it to samsung and lg πŸ™‚

            Actually,they will because no one checks the data today.I saw a commercial on some Chinese smartphone maker’s site about two years ago how they brag about having the first 6-lens camera and it came as a surprise because Nokia Lumia 925 had a 6-lens camera when it was announced.So I check and I was right.I sent them mail about it and didn’t even got an answer.They claim to have it first because it was the first on Android.It will always come to that-if it’s not on Android it didn’t happen.If tomorrow Samsung or LG released a 41 MP camera,they would claim it was the first.

          • Yeah Exactly πŸ™‚ HMD will have to brag about every thing from small features to the biggest that they bring. MWC event was not at all interesting. They were just speaking about design and stock android. The flagship event shout have a punch πŸ™‚

    Here’s a different perspective.

    Apple made computers. Then it transitioned to media players, then a phone, then a tablet, then a watch, and Apple TV.
    They are spreading their tentacles into many things.

    At first, wesy not be used to seeing our Nokia on devices other than phones, but I think they should continue.

    Our eyes and minds will get used to it eventually.

    I much rather see Nokia blasting their name everywhere with real, true to form, well thought out, well designed, devices and gadgets, than to see little toys made by Apple for the masses of brain dead people that love to waste time on social media and nonsense entertainment.

    Believe it!

      You’d be surprised how natural it looks on other objects once you get used to it :). I wonder if anyone has collected examples in an album anywhere, but you still find older stuff with Nokia logo on it, especially in Finland.

      From the top of my mind I can remember seeing it real life in rubber boots, bicycle tires, cable rolls, TVs, computer monitors (both CRT and LCD), satellite dishes, set top boxes for digital tv, wifi antennas, rubber door stoppers and those things that lower gates at railroad crossings when a train is coming. … If you saw some of those things and didn’t know any better, you might think they’re like one of those brands that get printed on cheap everything made by OEMs (e.g. Polaroid) but in Nokia’s case they actually have made all of that themselves.

    The problem is you need to change the font on everything, Everything would become much heavier and not fit the elegance of the watch. The current font for the watch is perfect. With the modification, my eye is drawn to the logo, not the watch as a whole. That’s a mistake and the designers understood that.

    • Understand that, and mentioned that in the post, but original logo could come in different colour or be a little bit more transparent … Well, we’ll see.

  • Viccky maurya

    No, current font is okk…

  • Nokia 3 in Yellow. Looking good. Isn’t it? πŸ™‚ I created it in Paint πŸ˜›

    • Looks really good πŸ˜€

    • Yeah, Nokia 3 should have these kind of colours. Looks fabulous

  • asd

    As the design language of this watch is more rounded, I think it makes sense to have a different clear and understated logo. This reminds of the typeface that was used on a sign at their old HQ. e.g. https://c.slashgear.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/nokia_finland-11.jpeg
