Edgar Rios is the latest in the series of designers who tried to imagine the iWatch. He sees a more squared device, sort of like a smaller iPhone , with a pretty solid belt.
It’s interesting that the designer tries to keep as much of the iOS experience as possible in such a small format. Basically, this is just like those iPod Nano watches from the past year or so. By the way, Apple has a slap wristband form factor patented recently, so this concept may take advantage of a flexible or curved display and the new wristband.
Seeing how people are already returning their Galaxy Gear watches, maybe it’s a good idea to wait for the smartwatch market to mature before Apple launches one. An iWatch with such a big facade wouldn’t be a fashion statement, but it would be actually usable on its own, maybe even without an iPhone…
