Digital touch was originally called E.T. for electronic touch. Chaudri says he called it that for its potential as a new form of emotional connection. The drawing “ink” was inspired by his graffiti days. the ephemera was designed to communicate transmission while making it guilt-free.

The first Apple Watch was built using a 6th-generation iPod Nano strapped to an ‌Apple Watch‌ band. It was created to demonstrate Siri and the Notification Center as early Apple Watch features.


Chaudhri shared other tidbits, including how the Solar Watch face was created as a way for Muslims observing Ramadan to quickly see the position of the sun, How the butterflies in the Apple Watch‌ Motion face were dead when they were captured in images to prevent harming live butterflies.

The Apple Watch has come a long way from the original version, now known as “Series 0.” with numerous new and improved features over succeeding generations. These include LTE connectivity, GPS, ECG functionality, fall, detection, and much more.

Rumors suggest future Apple Watch releases will include blood oxygen level monitoring and sleep tracking. We can’t wait to see what’s next. Happy 5th birthday, Apple Watch!
