The Apple Watch Screen is Smaller Than the Original Promo Video Showed

By Jamie Condliffe on at

Apple has released a new version of its Apple Watch design video. While that's not newsworthy in itself, it's interesting to note that it's also reduced the screen size of the watch being shown, too.

A very keen-eyed 9to5mac reader noticed that the watch in the newly released video features a larger bezel and smaller screen than first showed off by Apple. It's not a huge difference, but it is noticeable; every little counts when you've the tiniest of screens of your wrist.

It's perhaps not terribly surprising. The video appears to be based on renders, so it's easy to tweak, and given that Apple has a hell of a job ahead of it to make this watch work out in the harsh real world, some features will almost certainly have to be sacrificed between now and a commercial release. Elsewhere, the updated video appears to show a few UI tweaks, too, but they're very, very minor.

For now, though, all that we can do is wait and see how the Apple Watch transforms from refined prototype to consumer device. Well, we hope. [9to5mac via Engadget]
