New iWatch Concept Looks Like A Marriage Between a Nike Fuelband and An iPhone [video]

iwatch-concept-1-FSMdotCOMA few months ago Thomas Bogner posted an iWatch mockup on Dribbble that looked like a marriage between a Nike Fuelband and an iPhone. It was an impressive concept that got a lot of people excited including San Francisco-based UI designer Todd Hamilton. Todd saw that the concept had a major flaw – the orientation of the interface made it impossible to use – and decided to work on the existing concept to improve it.

Jump over the break to check out the concept in greater detail…

I started with a few sketches then worked my way towards a rough 3D mesh of the device. I kept the band simple with a curved touchscreen display on the front. For physical controls I placed a single button on the left to act as the home button, and two more on the other side for volume controls.

For the lock screen I designed a simple black & white interface displaying the time, date, and button to activate Siri. From here the possible actions are: tap to use Siri, swipe up to unlock, or pull down to view notifications. Sound familiar? While I was designing this I found myself pretending what it would be like to use swiping gestures on my wrist. Give it a try, it feels pretty good!

The springboard has four app icons vertically stacked with a page controller on the right. Swiping up or down moves between pages of apps. Pressing the home button takes you back to the lockscreen.
