The history of the Apple Watch

Great read with several interesting tidbits on designing the Apple Watch, by David Pierce in Wired:

Apple decided to make a watch and only then set out to discover what it might be good for (besides, you know, displaying the time). “There was a sense that technology was going to move onto the body,” says Alan Dye, who runs Apple’s human interface group. “We felt like the natural place, the place that had historical relevance and significance, was the wrist.”

A must read.
