    Will.i.am has been wearing an unknown smart watch on the voice uk for some time.. its his own and he reveled it tonight on Alan Carr.

    Great bit of self advertising. Definitely interested to see and hear more about it.


    He tweeted that it will be releasing in July....

    hmmmm notice he is wearing TWO bands exactly the same, so wonder if this comes as two bands for each wrist? Looks stylish though, I love how he was desperately trying to hide it from the cameras which you can't blame him when it's not launched.

    Looked like it had Cortana search on it, when the blue double circle was rotating on the display.

    Looks interesting. I'm still waiting for Apple's though, but it looks like it could give Samsung a run for their money.

    Interesting...

    The second I saw that last night I was straight onto the internet to find out more about it - pretty much nothing! I can't believe that William has managed to 'pull a Jobs' and keep it THAT secret (and if it is as big as all that, presenting it to the world for the first time on a cheap and ****** show such as Alan Carr's? Altogether now "Steve would never have done that")...

    Still, interested in that it's an integrated smartphone watch as opposed to a watch working in tandem with a phone...

    I'm not a huge fan of smart watches, and I'm not sure his will be much more then a curiosity.

    It's kind of huge though, like it should have some metal spikes coming out of it and maybe a dungeon app.

    You'd think he'd remember to turn the thing off before the live broadcast, eh?

    Lol, yeah I'm sure it wasn't planned as a bit of self promotion (not being cynical in anyway ;) )

    On my to-do list for one day next week:

    CD_huyEXIAAYlQc.jpg-large.jpeg
    1. print that photograph of Alex Hern's forearm and Apple Watch
    2. wear shorts
    3. affix the printout near the end of my left leg
    4. get me a will.i.am PULS™, a cheap camera and a selfie stick
    5. sit cross legged
    6. photograph: the back of my head (bottom left), ankle and Apple Watch (top centre), PULS (to the right) whilst my eyes (out of sight) glaze over at a future worse than anyone could have possibly imagined
    7. 'phone Mr Hern on the PULS to ask whether he's available for a variation on the photo shoot that doesn't involve a printout.
