If I informed you concerning a touchscreen smartwatch with a crown-driven interface and a UI based upon circles (regardless of the square display screen) that could enable you to see your get in touches with, calendars, and much more, you ‘d probably have a respectable concept what I was referring to: the upcoming Apple Watch.

Yet in fact, you would certainly be incorrect. I’m truly describing the 2001 WatchPad from IBM, viewed in the video clip above. It appears Apple’s latest creation isn’t really virtually as initial as they ‘d really hoped.

Possibly IBM needs to get a full-page ad in the Wall Road Diary saying “Welcome, Apple. seriously.”
