What The iWatch Could Look Like Running iOS 7 [Concept]

We’ve seen famed Apple concept designer Martin Hajek’s take on Cupertino’s possibly mythical, believed-to-be-forthcoming iWatch before, but that was before iOS 7 came along. So Hajek decided to adapt his design for the post-Forstall age.

The result? The iWatch S and iWatch C, which have not only been updated to support iOS 7 (at least in Hajek’s head), but which have taken some new design cues from the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c.

Personally, I really like the iWatch C, but I think that’s largely because I’ve always found Hajek’s taste in stitched leather watch straps to be fairly tacky.

    Be assured that it won’t look like this at all… or it will fail at commercialisation. A watch is not a gadget, its a fashion item that people wear with distinction. If it looks like an iPod (like in the rendered exemple here) it won’t make the fashion consumer attraction goal. It may be the most surprising design since the first iPod touch/iphone reveal in 2007.

    Smartest watches look too nerdy. It would be better if it looked like a Normal watch yet give notifications and pull up Siri.

    Exactly. They need something sexy, sleek, but that double functions as a device that does more than just time… I’m not 100% sold that a watch is coming out, however, if it does come out, it’ll be a fashion item. Didn’t they hire someone from another company to aid with it? I can’t remember the lady’s name.. (sorry for my vagueness)
