Illustration for article titled Can Apples Watch Overcome the History of Broken Smartwatch Promises?

Yesterday, Apple announced that it will release its own smartwatch in "early 2015." But the smartwatch has a trail of broken promises in its wake. Around this time last year Samsung announced that they were going to bring us the sci-fi future we had always dreamt about. Can Apple finally make our smartwatch dreams a reality? Only time will tell. (Sorry.)


Below we have a history of different smartwatch promises that span 70 years. Apple just might be the one to finally succeed at making the smartwatch mainstream, but the field has a lot of baggage. Either way, I guess we'll still have to wait on those telecasts from the moon.
