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.

I think you're in the minority there.

Most people wear watches as a functional fashion accessory or because they can't use a phone at work.

In the case of the former, bluetooth isn't really pretty / fashionable enough to wear on ones wrist; and in the case of the latter, bluetooth would be useless.

So I think it will be a long time yet before such things ever take off - assuming they ever will.
