The Apple "iWatch" [Rumour]

Would you buy one? :P

Quote:
APPLE is reportedly working on a talking iWatch which could include a navigation system, health and fitness monitoring features and have Siri branch out to become a wearable personal assistant.

The New York Times reports secret sources within Apple’s Cupertino headquarters have confirmed the technology giant is working on a watch made out of a revolutionary curved glass.

Apple never confirms or denies rumours about upcoming products but the New York Times sources say the watch would feature Willow Glass, a revolutionary glass that flops and bends without breaking.

There has long been talk of Apple making a watch, with wearable technology tipped to be the next step in personal communications to follow the era of smartphones.

Many people have tipped an Apple iWatch since the redesign of the iPod Nano which can be warn on the wrist as a do-it-yourself watch with a third-party wrist band.

Too big, if they could make it really small, and linkeable with my iphone and ipad via bluetooth, maybe. And it would have to be cheap, maybe less than $50. Then maybe.

Never I already have a watch that powers itself and updates the time a few times a day why would I want one that likely needs charging two or three times a day.

The whole idea makes me think apples lost it's marbles.

I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out

Will the iPatch come with an iParrot? If so, where do I line up now?

Apple will reinvent the watch, patent everything and will sue every watch manufacturer for copyright infringement

I also think it will be really cool, I really liked the watch strap idea for the iPod nano

I really wouldn't put it past apple to try and patent hour minute hands or something like that, looks like Samsung might be doing it as well

I think it's a dumb idea no matter who does it though Sonys already had one for quite a while but I've seen it referred to as Sonys worst product which is saying something.
