Apple "According to Chinese gadget news site Tech.163, Apple may be in the process of developing its own smart watch that connects to your Apple devices via Bluetooth. Based on the report, Intel will be working with Apple to create the smart watch, with a 1.5-inch PMOLED display made by RiTDisplays with ITO-coated glass." It must be the holiday lull. I'm this close to putting this in the joke category.

Fail or Joke

It has to be a joke. Either that or Apple has lost their minds. It would be a nearly useless gadget with a hefty price. What market is there for such a device? No serious watch collector or buyer will want such a device. It's not the Apple logo or digital technology that drives watches. Especially not one made in China. Your average teen crowd wouldn't want one. They don't want to wear a watch, regardless of what it does. And 1.5" screen? It is going to be clunky at best. Especially when it comes to women's watches.

ITO-coated glass? Lame. Sapphire is where it's at. Even touch sapphire.
