Designer Federico Ciccarese, who we know from many past Apple product concepts, has teamed up with some friends to create his latest iWatch render. This time around his concept is a little more realistic than some of the other iWatch renders we’ve seen from Ciccarese, and even touches on some of the old flexible display, slap-on wristband rumors that were floating around when iWatch rumors first started heating up. In case you’re out of the loop, we reported back in July that Apple had assembled a team sensor and fitness experts to work on the much rumored wearable, and over the weekend key Nike FuelBand developer Jay Blahnik confirmed he’s taken a job at Apple. Samsung is expected to unveil its new smartwatch, the Galaxy Gear, on Sept. 4 in Berlin, but recent reports note Samsung won’t have a flexible display ready in time for the first generation. The video below shows additional renders with the iWatch concept in black and various colors.

Our own Mark Gurman stopped by BusinessInsider recently to talk iWatch:
