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.

That's a fun bit of trivia of course.

But I don't doubt this watch would make a great timer for a bomb. It's cheap, you can get it everywhere, its battery lasts a very long time and it has an alarm.

The downside is though that the alarm is daily, meaning you can't use it to detonate a bomb outside a period of 24 hours. So once set you need to place it within 24 hours. Once set you can't disarm it, unless you build in another device.

I guess if you're in to electronics it wouldn't be too difficult to make a timer device that gives you a much more flexible range.

Personally I'd go for remote controlled bombs, giving you the greatest control over the exact detonation time.
