WristMac Was Not Made By Apple But it Worked With the Macintosh and Could Handle Notes, Alarms, and Much More

As mentioned earlier, the WristMac was made by Ex Machina Inc and Seiko. Since the wearable was not developed by Apple, it served users to store phone numbers, execute recurring or one-time alarms, and also take notes which could be exported as a text file to a disk. The WristMac was programmable by the user and worked with Apple's Macintosh computer.

Today, the WristMac is a very rare wearable, and it does not have a selling price tag. Henceforth, the ComicConnect CEO is expecting the WristMac to be sold at auction from anywhere between $1,000 to $100,000. The final listing price of the wearable will likely be between $25,000 to $50,000.
