    is it the world smallest Apple made Watch during the period of early 2015? Yes

    Now there's a challenger:

    0.83 in³ = 6th Gen iPod Nano

    ...though it is a much more limited computer device.

    I am indeed setting a specific category - - without rules games quickly descend to chaos.

    The 38 mm is smaller than all other current smartwatches.

    Does that include the clip? The clip makes up around 1/3 to 2/5 of the iPod's thickness, and I don't think it would be part of the 'computer' part of the iPod.

    I used the specs from Wikipedia, they do not appear to include the (removable) clip.

    I added the 6th Gen iPod Nano to the OP (thanks oennich!).

    The father of the Apple Watch - - it was quite the looker!

    Ok, so I dug out my old 6th generation iPod Nano, and it's thickness about 5.5 mm without the clip, and using the wikipedia measurements for width and length, 37.5 mm and 41 mm, that gives a total of 8456 mm cubed. (which when converted to inches cubed gives approximately 0.52 inches cubed) And therefore has a smaller volume than the Apple Watch.

    You're correct - - I've changed the OP.

    (Though it I still say it stretches (but doesn't quite break) the definition of a computer device - - I forgot it even had it's own built-in speaker.)

    The MK802 is indeed an interesting PC (FTR it's volume is 1.99 in³):

    ...however as discussed above, it is not an all-in-one device - - you need to also carry a screen, cables, input device, and a power supply to use it.

    The world's smallest computer is certainly an interesting topic (BTW - - here is the current champion), but it is not what is being compared in this thread.
