This developer has a web browser running on his Apple Watch

Obviously, it's not very practical

Comex, the developer behind JailBreakMe and former Apple intern, has figured out a way to hack the Apple Watch OS to get a web browser to run on the device, 9to5 Mac reports. In a recent video, Comex shows Google's homepage displayed on his Apple Watch.

Unsurprisingly, it looks a little ridiculous. Google's search bar is only shown in fragments as Comex's thumb fiddles with the display, and when the Copy/Define menu from an iOS interface pops up, it covers nearly the entire watch face. For now, Comex hasn't released any details of the hack.
