iWatch concept render based on patent filings could be more than just fan hype

Nikolay Lamm is an old pro at putting together device renders for rumored Apple products. That's not to say that what he designs comes true, although he wasn't too far off with his iPad mini concept, he was pretty far off in the clouds with his iPhone 5 attempt. Well, Nikolay has taken a shot at the rumored iWatch, and he has used some past Apple patent filings in order to give the renders more potential accuracy, rather than just fan hype...

This looks so awesome. Apple continues to innovate.

An odd thing to say given that 1) this isn't an official render from Apple, and 2) Apple is coming late to the smartwatch game, since Kickstarter projects like Pebble are already a reality.

The pebble is an accessory. I like it, but without a phone, it just a watch, it needs more than that for me to want to buy it. And i wouldn't say they're late, because they also weren't the first ones to bring the smartphones or tablets, but they were the ones to make it a successful market.

I wouldn't expect the iWatch to be much more than an accessory either. At best, it will be a hub device that connects to your phone, and can act as an iPod nano on its own. What more do you really expect to do on a watch?

Don't worry he rarely replies as he hasn't been programmed to do .. few 010010001 bits missing in the entire code :)

I would respond but apparently it isn't in my programming.

He's odd...period. He never speaks reason, and just likes to stir the pot for attention. And then there's dark, who should be coming along and chiming in any time now.....

Not necessarily. Have you forgotten about the Nano as a watch?
15. Reluctant_Human posted on 20 Feb 2013, 22:49 0
That nano as a watch concept was actually third party companies. There has been no official nano wrist band from apple to my knowledge.
I personally still use my nano as a watch / music player as do many others. This makes it extra surprising that Apple decided to make the nano bigger again in the last release instead of riding the wave of popularity that could have set them apart (and possibly have their stock not take a huge hit).
It just makes no sense to me not making a second nano with bluetooth as a second generation. But then again very few things at Apple make sense to me right now.

How is this innovation??? EXPAIN IT!!!! Its not like the smart watch concept has already been done and they are just jumping on the bandwagon and calling it theirs.
Do you even know what innovation means?

It took 100 people to copy from Pebble...and Sony isn't that innovation in Appleworld? ... but Sammy is also innovating :D
