Here’s How a Web Browser on the Apple Watch Looks Like [VIDEO]

Browsing the web on a smartwatch is indeed a bad idea, and many users would also agree on that. In fact, Apple didn't include a native browser into the Apple Watch. This clearly tells that the Apple Watch isn't meant to browse the web.

Nevertheless, Comex, a well-known jailbreak developer and former Apple intern, has managed to hack the Apple Watch OS to get a running web browser on to the timepiece, 9to5 Mac reports.

In a video posted Sunday, the famed developer demonstrates Google's homepage displayed on the Apple Watch. Apparently, the page doesn't load images, and there's no built-in keyboard to input text.

"Apple has announced a native SDK is in the works, which will allow the wider developer community to create apps that run code on the OS itself (rather than through an iPhone app extension a la WatchKit). Until then, community hacks like this are the first glimpse of what might be possible,"9to5Mac writes.

To be honest, a 1.5-inch smartwatch screen never becomes web-friendly, as users would require a lot of patience to browse the web on such a small display. That obviously doesn't mean that smartwatches aren't capable of running web browsers.

So far, Comex hasn't released any details of the hack. Apple, on the other hand, has official stated that native third-party Apple Watch applications will be coming "later this year".
