What if the Apple Watch was ROUND?

As we all know, Apple’s new wearable device the “Apple Watch” as they call it was unveiled to the world earlier this week as a rounded square timepiece. While Motorola & LG have opted for a circular smartwatch with the Moto 360 & the LG Gwatch R respectively. Apple’s Watch will be available early next year in two square editions and a variety of finishes. Square might be the only option in Apple’s smartwatch portfolio right now, but what if the Apple smartwatch was circular?

Designer Alcion has tried to find out exactly what people were really expecting from Apple. In a series of concept images, Alcion offers a glimpse at what Apple’s smartwatch would look like with a circular display. Perhaps not surprisingly, there are a number of UI elements that match a round display perfectly, including the home interface and activity monitor. Apple’s Watch might be a little chunky square with bulging sides right now, but this thin concept shows the potential for future generations. We don’t expect smartwatch components to get squeezed into a thin and elegant frame anytime soon but the same was expected from Apple.
