This Is The Only iWatch I Would Want To Wear On My Wrist [Concept]

iWatch-Render

This gorgeous iWatch concept designed by Nikolai Lamm by commission of MyVouchersCode is my idea of what an Apple watch should actually look like, and how it would function: as an accessory to the iPhone.

iWatch & iPhone Interaction

Utilizing a patent for a spiral iTunes interface that Apple has never utilized and inspired by the shape of the Ikepod, a watch designed by a friend of Jonathan Ive, who according to Lamm has a “personal preference for normal looking watches” and not “a curved glass Star Trek contraption.”

I personally love it, band I think a rotary-style UI for a round watch makes a lot of sense, densely packing a lot of app icons in a small space. In the Cult of Mac chatroom, though, Buster Heine thinks I’m nuts, claiming this to be a far superior concept.

What do you think? Let us know in the comments.

    I’m not too sure about that spiral interface, but one thing is for sure, Buster is smokin’ crack! :-P The round watch face has a much classier look to it.

    They don’t have an Android watch that looks like this.

    Well, this is an artist’s rendering. I’m sure in person, it would look a little better with a nice bezel and wristband. It actually reminds me more of a Movado watch which are designed for adults, not children.

    I dont want an ipod watch. I want a Dick Tracy Watch. “THE TIME”, “SOME” information relayed from the iphone in my pocket, and bluetooth speaker, and mic, so I never have to take my iphone out of my pocket unless I want to. tap watch, Call home….. and it does it. tap watch, text bob, and it does it. And if it can do it for $99 or less and look good, ill take it.

    EDIT: and a battery that lasts at least a week.
