    I suspect I am not the only one who runs with my iphone. I was just thinking today that if or when a iwatch comes out I would like it to be able to replace my iphone for running.

    So make an iwatch with gps, apps and the abiliy to play audio with a headphone jack. :)

    Surely it would be annoying to have a wire from your ear to your wrist whilst running?

    Now bluetooth headphones, YES!

    Not that I run, ever.

    I concur, it would be nice to ditch the armband/iPhone while still using Nike+.

    I really doubt the iWatch will have GPS or accurate enough (for run tracking) location tracking built in though.

    I have my iphone on my arm now when I run and the wires don't border me. :)

    Meh depends on the price. I'm not going to spend $300+ for a running device (especially in the rain/mud/winter etc). My $49 shuffle does just fine and if I really want more I can spend $150 and get a new Nano.
