Initial sketch

Designer Todd Hamilton was inspired by a previous concept of a slim iWatch that borrows from the look and function of fitness trackers like the Nike FuelBand. He sought to make it more usable by giving it a vertical user interface and stylings that more closely resemble something Apple might actually make. What he came up with certainly seems worth forwarding on to Jony Ive.

Hamilton began with the above sketch of a rubber band form factor with a curved screen.

Lock screen

The lock screen of the concept iWatch is a clock and a shortcut to access Siri. Swiping up gets you to the home screen, while a downward swipe can be used to view notifications.

Home screen

The home screen fits four apps vertically with the ability to swipe up and down for more screens. A physical home button can be found on the left edge of the band.

Fitness tracking

A watch shaped like a fitness-tracking band might as well be true to form. This is how Hamilton imagined an interface for a fitness tracking app.

Contacts

The world's tiniest thumbnails permeate the contacts dialog on this iWatch concept.

Making a call

Hamilton imagines this watch tethered to an iPhone, and that making a call might look like this.

Coming soon?

Of course, Apple remains mum on any actual iWatch plans. But in the meantime, Hamilton advocates trying out some swiping motions on your wrist for practice.
