Concepts published in a new book by former Apple designer Hartmut Esslinger reveal Apple’s first attempt at a connected smartwatch back in the 1980s.

The release of this design concept coincides with recent Apple rumors that suggest — with possibly zero validity — that Apple will soon debut an iWatch device at its World Wide Developer Conference (WWDC). After watching Samsung fumble with the Galaxy Gear for months, we’re itching to see if Apple can do better.
