Apple’s iWatch From the ’80s

iwatch

We hear a lot about the iWatch and other smartwatches these days. But the idea behind these wearable devices is nothing new. Hartmut Esslinger’s Keep It Simple: The Early Design Years of Apple has images of early prototypes Apple was working on decades ago. Among those photos are pictures of a smart wrist watch from the ’80s. The watch had a keypad and a headset with an integrated microphone. That doesn’t look too brilliant for this era, but it was quite an idea in the ’80s. You can buy the book here.
