iOS Interface Depicted on a Hypothetical 2.5-Inch iWatch Screen
Since news of Apple's iWatch development first surfaced in 2012, supply chain rumors and analyst speculation have all pegged its display size at a modest 1.3 to 1.7 inches. Earlier today, Reuters released a report suggesting the display will be much larger than anyone expected, coming in at 2.5-inches diagonally.
MacRumors forum member Lewis Dorigo has previously speculated that the iWatch would have a 2.45-inch display with a 480x640 display, and has even created a crude mockup depicting what an iWatch of that size would look like on a wrist.
While several rumors have suggested the iWatch will indeed run iOS, it is still possible that Apple could go in an entirely different direction with the device, creating a standalone interface or an iOS-based interface that deviates from the iPhone's interface.
Dorigo suggests that 80 pixels of the screen might be reserved for a CarPlay-style digital home button, leaving a 240 pixel space for apps, but that's pure speculation -- Apple could also choose to place a physical home button on the side of the device.
Along with a home button built into the screen, Dorigo imagines a largely touch-based interface, where Siri is activated via a press on the screen and individual apps have large, easy-to-press buttons. He also speculates on what the interface might look like when connected to an iPhone, as the iWatch is rumored to be heavily integrated with existing iOS devices.
While Dorigo's speculation gives a look at what a larger iWatch might look like, the device's screen resolution and prospective user interface remain a mystery at this time.

According to rumors, the iWatch is expected to include a range of health sensors, such as a pulse monitor, along with wireless charging capabilities. The iWatch is expected to make its debut in the fall, possibly at an October event.

These mock ups get worse and worse but Macrumours still publish them..
What next, a mock up drawn in sand?
All very well having a bigger touch screen, but battery capacity is still limited…
Hardware / Software: The right tools for the job - be it Apple or otherwise.

These are not even rumours anymore. It is just speculation by an amateur that is not in any way connected to Apple at all. I could draw an interface on a pink elefant's ass and it would be equally relevant.

It would be good if one of the moderators here would for once take a stand and explain what is going on here. The level of reporting is going down and from the reactions shown here it is quite a common and broad view that this is the case.
At least go and discuss it with the editors because this is getting ridiculous.

I thought for sure you guys were doing a "we know all the mockups/pictures are funny" prank post. Kept reading till I realized nope, it really is a post about a man putting packing tape around his arm and calling it news.

Seriously ARN, get a freaking grip.
What do I have?, stuff that I actually use for work! Some old, some new, all effective.
