Of all the concepts that we've seen over the weeks, this one looks to be rather promising, owing to the fact that it has a big screen. More display real estate means more functionality potential. Something that Apple is defintely focusing on given the plethora of things that competing smart watches from Sony and Pebble are capabale of doing.
