apple-iwatch-sms-readThe Apple Watch was announced last week and unfortunately it wasn’t the round display that many had assumed it would be. Now some of you guys might dig the design and some of you won’t, but if you were to think about it, doesn’t the Apple Watch’s design remind you of the sixth generation iPod nano?

If you recall several years ago, Apple launched the sixth-gen iPod nano which had a square face. Perhaps it was unintentional but many quickly realized the possibility of using it as a watch, which prompted the release of straps and accessories by companies. Well as it turns out, the Apple Watch did get its inspiration from the iPod nano.

This is according to an anonymous former Apple designer who claims that Apple Watch had begun has a redesigned iPod nano. Apparently Apple had worked behind closed doors for several years improving on the design, adding features like the Digital Crown as well as several health-related sensors along the way.

We suppose that makes sense and if you liked the idea of the iPod nano watch, then we guess the Apple Watch could be for you. The wearable is expected to see a launch in 2015 and hopefully Apple will be able to address battery concerns by then.
