Finally, Apple released the much anticipated smartwatch. Unfortunately, the design is ugly. Not only the watch is ‘fat’, I don’t see a need to read messages or view stuff on my watch when my smartphone is in my pocket. Anyway, Apple’s latest toy is called Apple Watch, not iWatch. Given a choice, I say the Moto 360 by Motorola is impressive.

Oddly, I still find the first generation square iPod nano a much more beautiful watch + ipod. Understandably it is nothing more than an mp3 player with a LCD screen, none the less it is still beautifully crafted. As shown in the images below, these are 1st Gen iPod Nano with third party straps.

      @Jordano – Yeah, the price is crazy, I was thinking of buying the Sony Smartwatch but the price is too expensive. Might as well go for a normal swatch watch.

        Your phone can be in your bag or pocket or anywhere within 10 meters. Like a mini version of your smartphone

    You didn’t mentioned the price. My favorite is I’m Watch, though little costlier.

      The smart watch is a wristwatch that connects to your smartphone to present pertinent information so you don’t have to take the phone
