The Watch the Future concept predicts the direction that tablets, smartphones and watches will eventually take. Essentially, they will be combined into one wearable device that controls just about everything while divulging just as much, if not more, information as present-day mobile tech does.

Designed by French art director F. Bertrand, the Watch the Future concept is a tactile watch that boasts an interface much like an iPhone. The menu has an app-like aesthetic that is both familiar and popular. By wrapping around the entire bracelet, these apps are easily accessible and convenient to control whether the person is sitting still or on the move biking and walking.

The Watch the Future concept can also read a person's pulse to keep track of their emotions and health. Stats for Touchscreen Bracelets Trending: Older & Buzzing
