    Had a though recently. Apple has already integrated a pretty good fingerprint sensor into the iPhone. What if they also add the heart rate monitor, hydration sensor, glucose sensor etc into the home button? There would be no need for a watch at all!

    Possible?

    Definitely -- if the phone can somehow measure your heart rate and other things over a period of time without touching you even when it's in your pocket or purse and can magically project the screen on to your wrist at will and can send you notifications in a way that you can hear and feel even while it's in your pocket or purse as clearly as if it's on your wrist and can possibly project it's ability to make sounds with its speakers and to pick up sounds with its mic on to your wrist even while it's in your pocket or purse.

    You could ditch the phone handset all together and just use "the watch" in conjunction with a blue tooth ear piece. Or, just use something like google glass with a speaker.

    No the reason I want a iWatch is so I can become one with technology and have it be a part of my body. That would be pretty awesome.

    It's already part of your body. It if isn't in your hand, it is in your pocket, or your purse (if you are a female) (Or one of those men that use purses) or at least very nearby. I constitute that as part of your being; part of your existence.

    But that's just me. Take example of the photographer a few posts up- he uses twine to bind his phone to his wrist. A very bold fashion statement, if you ask me.

    My pocket is not a part of my body. Having a device on my wrist that is constantly there and on would be truly having tech become a part of me.

    I think you should strive to get google glass, if you really want to be a literal "computer" person. I think that's the optimum thing for you to do.

    What if?

    I dont know? What if breaded chicken strips became orthodox for dessert? What if you washed your hair in a toilet bowl? What if you ran a mile for one mcdonalds mini meal toy?

    Those what if questions get me every day and have me thinking 24/7, I'll tell you what.
