    I so hope this is true! I always had a feeling that diagnostics port was for more than diagnostics. Also over the last 3 years or so Apple has hired a number of people from the medical and medical devices field. These people were hired for a reason and it certainly goes beyond heart rate measurement.

    When have we heard this before? Specifically new bands coming next year?

    I don't care if it is a new or an old rumor - being able to add new functionality with a new band instead of requiring an entirely new watch is very cool.

    I think so too which is why I hope it's true. I wonder if GPS could be added via a band.
