Designers' Idea Of Apple's Smartwatch vs. Apple's Actual Smartwatch

Because designers wanted to imagine what Apple's new smartwatch would looks like, some looked more unrealistic than others.

Posted on

Prior to the announcement of Apple's hugely awaited smart watch on September 9th, independent designers rely on rumours and patent designs to imagine what Apple's new wearable device would look like. Many of them were widely predicted to be called the "iWatch".

Here are a gallery of what designers think Apple's smartwatch looks like.

Because making a watch, that comes with a mesh strap and without something to hold onto your wrist includes very tiny application symbols on the face.

Another iWatch looking like an iBracelet, this one with two screens: one with a stretched older iOS display and a round screen for the time that will definitely drain the battery.

And here is Apple's actual watch...

It's called Apple Watch (and not iWatch or iMe), it doesn't have a built-in camera or a projector, but does have a rounded rectangle face shielded by a glass or sapphire display, in stainless steel, aluminium or gold, in 38mm or 42mm cases, and comes in various straps and buckles in three collections (those are called 'Apple Watch', 'Apple Watch Sport' and 'Apple Watch Edition'), plus it doesn't look like a fitness band or an "iBracelet".

So for the independent designers out there...


Please dispose the "iWatch" concept designs immediately.
