Apple iWatch trademark mission on the move
Actually, iWatch already has 10 “live” trademark filings in some form in the US Patent and Trademark Office’s Trademark Electronic Search System (TESS) to one degree or another. Apple is likely just making these filings to pro-actively defend the brand once it comes to market.
All this activity pretty much ensures Apple is working on a smart watch of some type even though the company has not acknowledged the existence of such a device. Of course, Apple will be joining a segment that will be getting crowded very quickly. All of the other major manufacturers are developing their own connected watch devices, or have one on the market already.

Apple better price it accordingly when it releases. And I pray to the tech gods Apple doesn't try to sue other companies for money.

What do you think about that concept Smurf?

If the concept were a final design and waterproof, I would be interested.

Hmm. Well, it's an interesting concept. I don't think I would buy it, but you may never know. As of now, the chances of me getting a iPhone 5S is growing after messing with my cousins iPhone 5 for a bit. It's basically the iPhone 5S vs. Note 3 for me. I'm excited what Q3 has to offer. I never thought I would walk over to the Apple side, but I'm ready to experiment. I may as well run with iPhone 5S and Note 3 as my daily drivers. Only time will tell.

Those are the two I'm getting dude. I'm too much of a lover of both platforms no to.

In typical Apple fashion, look for a starting pricing of around $400. As far as Apple not suing other companies, are you kidding???

Pretty soon we will start seeing some law suits.

AMOLED flexible display would be good for this kind of design.

Apple has never used AMOLED screens in any of their phones or tablets... I don't think this will change anytime soon.
