Being practical is the main reason behind shunning Siri, speakers and mobile connectivity in this new iWatch concept. As a typical SmartWatch, this concept hosts some very non-typical features. For example, to save on battery consumption, the design includes solar energy and wireless recharging. Siri and cellular connectivity are not included because of their power draining capabilities.
The designer hopes that the imaginative iOS 7 will have off-line Maps integration. Design-wise buttons and holes are not a part of the deal. This is because watches are used to rough usage; fewer buttons and slots mean lesser damages and more room for the battery. A notification via vibrations is perhaps its best feature and something most SmartWatches should consider. Overall a near representation of time!
