59 Sensational Smartwatch Designs

From the New Apple Watches to Acupuncture-Inspired Wrist Bands

— September 10, 2014 — Tech
At the Apple 2014 event, Apple Watches were announced alongside the unveiling of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. This exciting revelation of Apple's first foray into wearable technology has been longly anticipated. Compatible with iOS 8, the Apple Watch has a variety of rectangular faces and six different metal band options in addition to features like the 'digital crown' and conversation button.

However, Apple Watches are hardly the only innovative smartwatch model out there. The Moto 360, for example has a unique round display. Others differ in their function, such as fitness-tracking smartwatches compared to wearable loyalty card apps. Some of the technologically advanced timepieces are bulkier, while others are cuff-styled or disguised as analog wristwatches.

Regardless of how you use your smartwatch, the design of Apple Watches is surely a game-changer.
