Apple iWatch "S" and "C" concept renders look like mini iPhones

Apple iWatch
Reports keep coming in about how Apple is running into production issues with the iWatch, but since there is no planned release window known yet, the reports don't really mean much right now. But, regardless of when the iWatch is scheduled to hit the market, designers are going to keep wondering what they will look like. A new set of concept renders give the iWatch a decidedly iPhone-like look.

The renders were made by graphic designer Martin Hajek, who has a history of putting together concept renders of rumored Apple devices. It's not hard to see where Martin got his inspiration either. You really don't have to look past the names - iWatch S and iWatch C - to figure it out. The only thing that we would say is that it seems unrealistic for Apple to be building a device that will likely launch around the same time as the iPhone 6, but would take its design inspiration from the iPhone 5s and 5c. 

Overall, the designs look good with curved displays and nice leather straps for the iWatch S. We would have preferred to see the designs feature swappable wristbands, and we are interested to see what designers imagine for the UI of the software itself; but, in the end we'd say Mr. Hajek did a solid job.

It's going to suck if it's a tiny iPhone on your wrist. They need to make a smart watch that is smart as a watch not mini wrist phone. Someone needs to get this formula right and so far with all the delays it feels even apple isn't going to do it. So many resources wasted for nothing.

I like more the idea of Sony's Smartwatches than what Samsung released... A smartwatch should be a smartphone Accesory not a standalone phone... My phone already has a good, quick camera, big screen for typing and browsing.... so the Watch should be intended to complement that, not replace it

this design is stupid and it conflicts with apple design philosphy it's most likely gonna be wristband like the nike fuelband/lg lifeband. clean with a tiny display and small button like that of an iphone nothing else

How can a concept render be fake? Is it not a real concept? Is it an imaginary render?

This looks awesome. No doubt Apple will use high quality leather wrist bands. I am confident that in five years the iWatch will be considered just like the iPhone; it wouldn't have been the first of its kind, but it will be remembered as the one that forced the competition to really up their game. This is coming from someone who loves all tech and is currently using an Lg G2 and a Pebble.

Lame! I'm not even a designer and I know that that band does not go with that 'iWatch.' The real designers are working for Apple making big bucks! This "designer" is ...well...a "CONCEPT RENDERER!"
