    Default iWatch is the Perfect iPhone Companion?



    At times it appears that our iPhones are practically glued to our hands. So perhaps to free up our hands, we can just glue our iPhones to our wrists? That's sort of the concept behind a new prototype wristwatch called the iWatch, which would would link up to your iPhone and communicate with it via Bluetooth.

    To clear up some confusion around the blogosphere, however, this is not an Apple product. Nor is it a patent application put forward by Apple. And it certainly isn't on Apple's agenda at WWDC 2010. The Italian design firm behind the iWatch says that should such a product come to fruition, it could serve up approximately 16GB of internal storage and act as an out-of-pocket always-accessible iPhone companion that would let you answer calls, read news, check weather, review notes, and enjoy a multitude of other features native to the iPhone.

    One of the first criticisms levied on the iWatch, of course, is that it represents yet another sign of how lazy we're becoming. After all, the iWatch doesn't provide any functionality that our iPhones can't. They simply prevent the need for reaching into our pockets to obtain the device. Nonetheless, while the idea for an Apple-style device of this nature is cool, chances are, if such a product were to ever roll out, we would have seen it by now.

    Myriad accessory makers have dabbled in Bluetooth watches and presented concepts like the iWatch, but they are yet to truly resonate with consumers. And perhaps for that reason above all others, the iWatch may never leave the prototype stage to actually become the next big thing in technological wrist attire.

    Its pretty cool but having our iPhones and iPads I don't think that many would need or want such a thing... I would buy it because the large numbers... when one gets older it gets hard to see and this would work great for people like me!

    I would get it for the large numbers too. If they do just watch like this with number and the weather I'll get it, Plus I don't need a watch to have any amound of GBs in it. Just something that can give me the time and weather.

    I would buy one in a heartbeat if they were not over $100-$150. Keep some essential music in there, photos, weather. dang. oh, yeah, time too.

    The tag line could be something like, "I wear my geek on my sleeve. (or wrist, whatever)"

    you guys are cheap!! LOL... a regular watch withouth bluetooth and wifi and all that stuff is at least 300 bucks. of course this will be a lot more than 200... I love watches and, not collect them, but have quite a few, so I might just get one, looks cool, but fragile.

    but it would be sold as an idevice companion, thus, It should cost less.

    Why don't they make a giant headset for us to wear that syncs to our calendar events and automatically brushes our teeth for us at the intervals we set?

    most f*cking retarded idea ever. Ok now we have an iPhone that needs an attachement to display time. How about another accesory that acts as a camera for the iphone and how about a seperate mic that we can pair with the iPhone omg awesome right. How many products that do the same thing as the iPhone do we need. The iPhone is already complete why have over 9000 "complimentary" products?

    And anyone wearing this would look like a f*cking tool. Watches are jewelry.
