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.

In the 80's I had a computer watch, although it didn't connect to my phone. Well, it only connect to my Commodore 64 with a cable. Anyway, there is nothing new about "computer" watches.

The Apple watch rumor has survived a couple of times ever since people started wearing iPod Nano's as watches. It sound ideal to be able to use your watch to see if you need to get the iPhone out of your pocket. It would be great if Nike+ on the iPhone displayed information on the phone, because it's easier to peek at your watch while running than to grab a phone.

I have an above average person number of watches (including Apple watches), but I've stopped buying them the last 2 years in anticipation of an Apple watch or another brand that connect with an iPhone.
