Contary to what some might think, there are Apple products I don't use or don't like, like the iPhone, mouse, TV. I will be adding the iWatch to the list.

Apple never releases details of new products until they are ready to release them, but with 100 designers working on it I guess it'll be released sometime this year.

Maybe something like this one,

Apple has been grant­ed a broad patent describ­ing how advanced sen­sors attached to devices or worn by users can mon­i­tor and ana­lyze move­ment, force, and envi­ron­men­tal con­di­tions. All of those functions would be part of the iWatch.

With an accessory, the Shuffle can already be used like a watch.

Whoever makes a phone you can wear or a way to "Wear your phone" as a fashion accessory will big a big winner.. women are tired of looking for their phone in their bag.. Whoever makes a case for Iphone that is a solar panel... will make millions.. and Samsung must make the Galaxy case flap...a solar panel for emergency recharge. Dick Tracy gave these ideas in the 1950's.. and Star Trek in the 60's... Japan smart techies.. get on it.. Japan is always 2 years ahead of America with communications devices and social media.

I haven't owned nor worn a watch in 40 years, time is very over rated.

This article lacks the information that this is just a rumour, created by a single person, a former Apple engineer, who said that Apple could create an ultra modern watch, given that Apple has the resources to do so. And he emphasized that this was his only being imaginative. It also misses the other part of the rumour, the one saying that it could unlock other iDevices nearby and activate Siri and other iPhone functions without the need of taking it out of the bag or pockets. If Apple takes the idea and manufactures this, it certainly would be a good idea and I would buy one.

Yup, shoddy journalism at it's worst. They don't even have original investigation anymore, just "U.S. media reports say" and a list of who said what (even though all of them quote each other in a ridiculous cycle). I think they should hold off articles until the first leaked photos come out at least.
