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.

Watches are different beast

I haven't seen any "hi tech" watch model succeeding despite many of them were made. Well, even simple electronic watches are somewhat avoided or even ignored in a "real" watch reviews. Well, it's an accessory and the main thing a watch must have is some kind of luxury factor, having real gears, ticking. unless Apple could market that to it's followers as a cool thing.

OTOH Apple already released what is possibly the most popular (almost)smartwatch, the iPod Nano 6th gen (after adding to it a watch band). Though who knows how many were & are used that way.

And IIRC Apple marketed... watch bands, their varied styles, as the cool thing.
