Here’s What An Apple Smartwatch From The 1980s Looks Like

This watch from the 80s was all adorned with buttons and didnt have a display

This year is going to bring us the Apple’s exclusive iWatch which has is going to compete with the likes of the Pebble and Samsung’s multitude of wearables which have already made their way to the markets. Apart from this, Google has also take the wraps off of its Android Wear dev kit and it was just the perfect time that Apple stepped in as well. However, this is not the first time that Apple would be designing a smartwatch. This throwback from the 80s is going to tell you just what we are talking about.

This watch by Apple was not designed with a display but it was equipped with a couple of buttons and also had a headset. This concept was designed by Designer Hartmut Esslinger for Steve Jobs back in the 80s and though in this era it wouldn’t have settled for a smartwatch at all, it still seems pretty intriguing for that time. We would have loved to know this product but somehow we are also glad that it never made it to the market.
