Apple Watch 8: does this smartwatch design go too far?

The notch (display notch) was Apple's trademark of the iPhone and can now also be found in the MacBook Pro. What if the upcoming Apple Watch 8 would adopt the design feature along with the front camera? Sounds crazy, but does the following smartwatch design actually go too far?

With the iPhone we got used to the notch for a long time, with the MacBook Pro we now have to. So far, the iPad and Apple Watch have been spared. Assuming Apple wanted to integrate a front camera in the upcoming Apple Watch 8, would the notch also be an option for the smartwatch?

Apple Watch 8 with camera and notch in the concept

Parker Ortolani could very well imagine this and without further ado outlines an Apple Watch with a front camera and notch (source: 9to5Mac). The marketing strategist and product designer got the idea when he took a look at Facebook's ominous smartwatch. It now appeared in documents and shows the smart companion with a display notch in the lower area of ​​the screen (source: Bloomberg via 9to5Mac).

Ortolani grabs the notch or the camera and grabs it discreetly in the upper area of ​​the display on the Apple Watch. Although it is clearly visible there, it does not appear intrusive. In contrast to the iPhone and Mac , this one makes up more of a point, not a bar . An obvious solution for the designer, he writes:

"If Apple put a notch in the watch, it would certainly be a lot smaller than the notches in other devices. It would probably only house a small camera. Since the display of the Apple Watch Series 7 has now been pushed to the edge, a recess is really the only way for Apple to integrate a camera into the device. "

FaceTime and more on Apple's smartwatch

Should the Apple Watch ever get a camera, the way would finally be free for FaceTime and selfie recordings . The smartwatch would then simply have miniature versions of the corresponding iPhone counterparts. For this purpose, Ortolani developed a simple user interface with three buttons each, suitable for FaceTime calls and the camera app.

The current Apple Watch Series 7 ( here in the video ) still works without a notch:

At the moment it is really just an idea, reports or rumors in this direction have not surfaced yet. Nevertheless: This draft does not go too far, instead it shows a possible future that Apple could consider sooner or later. Only the Apple Watch 8 should we not expect the feature directly.
