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.

Let's imagine a funny device (No need to talk about who makes it for now) that I could also appreciate:

Ok... A watch... How should it be:

- no (too) visible difference with a "normal" watch.
- Voice recognition
- It MUST have 3-4-Whatever-G
- bluetooth connection with other device for:
--- Phone answer/reject (Must work in conjunction with a headset)
--- Read media from portable device (Music / Radio) (still has to work in conjunction with a headset).
--- Biometric records and real-time advices for cardiovascular training (like a Polar Watch) (Another one commented about it and it's a good idea)
--- Stream media to other devices (TV / Radio / Computer)
- NFC for easy payments
- Cable-less charging
- Wifi (client and hotspot)
- Open protocols to communicate with a maximum of devices
- And a little personal touch... Why not a little steampunk touch :-)
