The iWatch Comes To Life In This Awesome Concept GIF

Over the past couple of months we’ve seen tons of concept designers dream up ideas of what Apple’s smartwatch might look like, but this concept iWatch GIF by Thomas Bogner is one of the best ideas we’ve seen yet.

Bogner admits his concept is “basically like the bastard child of a Fuel Band and an iPhone,” but we think it looks like it’d be easy to use and comfortable to wear while looking gorgeously hi-tech with those smooth transitions.

Tim Cook has sat on Nike’s board of directors since 2005, and it’s been rumored that Jony Ive’s design team studied Nike watches while working the iWatch. Maybe it’s not totally crazy to think Apple could borrow a few design cues from Nike, although the screen is really too narrow to be useful for emailing, texting, or anything really useful.

    That is gorgeous – i wear the fuelband at the moment and really like it, but that thing right there is stunning.

    The only issue I have with this beautiful design is the ergonomics of trying to read this while it is attached to your wrist, especially in iMessage mode.

    I highly doubt that the final iWatch will actually be too functional for reading texts or emails, i have a feeling that it will basically be a notification centre that will rely heavily on Siri.

    This concept is gorgeous

    Am I the only one that realizes the text is not practically displayed? If its on your wrist it would all be at a 90º angle to normal visual orientation.
