    I would wait if you can especially if you are already heavily invested in the Apple ecosystem. The integration will be great I bet.

    yes ....or was your post supposed to be sarcastic?

    I'm curious...if the iWatch is a conduit for the phone, and the iWatch connects to the iPhone by bluetooth, will we still be able to connect a bluetooth headset to the phone so we can answer calls? Surely the iPhone can handle interacting with two bluetooth devices at once???

    I would assume so, keyboards and mice work at the same time on computers.

    Well, I've never actually tried connecting two bluetooth devices at once. I've connected a keyboard, and a bluetooth headset, but never tried typing while talking on the phone ;)

    Call me old fashion, but that's exactly why I wear a watch.

    I've got several watches, all automatics. My favorite watch is my $50 Seiko 5. I find the sweeping second hand relaxing.:cool: I also like the barely noticeable tick-tick-tick when I'm in a completely quiet room. Again, very relaxing.

    Too big to be very compelling for me. I'm also completely uninterested in the "fitness wearables" fad and will be disappointed if that's the focus of the device. But there have been so many competing predictions and rumors that I guess we'll all just have to wait and see at this point because there's no way to pick the truth from everything that's been speculated.

    After the iMac downgrade release, I expect nothing less from Apple. Who's going to buy this crap?

    Maybe we'll get the iBracelet next, and the iNecklace. How about some iShoes?

    All interconnected with a direct link to the NSA Fusion centers around the country lol.

    Does the Mac Mini still exist? Maybe we'll get a slower Mini with soldered memory for the upcoming update. Should be revolutionary. :roll eyes:

    can't be

    well, it would be unexpected if that's the form factor.

    it would also be unwanted but most people, or so it would seem :confused:

    If the focus is fitness failure becomes inevitable. Hey Apple, have you not been to Wal-Mart lately? The average BMI in the country is 30 :D

    When I wanted to look cool in front of everyone back in the very early 1980s, I'd pull out my dichromatic hologram pendant that I ordered from the Edmund Scientific Catalog.
    These days, if I pull out my iPhone, I don't really care whether anyone around me is watching.
    The "edgy" and "different" and "rad" folks are the ones who troll these boards to say they are into analog watches or land lines. I don't even understand how they get so many posts in with their dial-up connections.

    Taking all the available information, I believe I have designed a 100% accurate mock-up.

    That mock-up truly looks hideous!

    wait a second - will the Iwatch be the first collaborative product by Beats/Apple.
    and why stop at 2.5" when you could go for a whopping 8" timepiece

    iSaucer by Dre, in collaboration with Diesel.
    You can wrap it around your wrist, neck or even ankle.
    It's magical

    Same here. I just have a feeling this is going to be another amazing product from Apple, and I know I'm not the only one. Launching this will be a huge moment for Tim Cook.

    I see apple making the iWatch circular with a wrap around strap that the watch slips into like the iPad Airs fit in the smart cases that can come in lots of "fun" colors!

    I'd be disappointed if the iWatch had wireless charging, but the iPhone 6 doesn't.

    Well, 2.5" is going to be big, I think the LG G watch looks a bit on the large size and that has is rumoured to have a 1.65" screen. Yeah this iWatch had better wrap around your wrist!
