Do You Prefer A Traditional Design For The iWatch? [Concept]

Ever since the rumors began that Apple could be looking into releasing a smartwatch we have seen numerous concepts from various designers. Most of the concepts depict the iWatch to be a glorified fitness band, but this isn’t how Gábor Balogh, a freelance designer from Hungary, envisions Apple’s smartwatch.

Traditional iWatch Concept

He took the traditional watch and bundled it with smart features. He says that his goal was to create a smartwatch that:

  • Kept the traditional values and quality
  • Included carefully selected functions
  • Easily paired with a smartphone
  • Smudge-free handling

Essentially he has taken a traditional Swedish watch and replaced its face with a circular display. He has created mockups to show the user interface for apps such as Weather, a Health application, Music player, Calendar etc.
