    Like the iPad mini rumors from the past 2 years, I'll believe its' existence only if it shows up at an Apple keynote. ;)

    Sell this as the Dick Tracy watch and they'll sell millions to comic book fans.

    I'd consider it if the price wasn't outrageous, but that isn't likely. It would be nice though to have a watch with widgets or apps to show weather and such, I can see this becoming a reality within the next year or two, but I doubt apple will be the one to make it happen. A windows 8 "tile" design would interest me a lot, just got windows 8 and I'm enjoying it more and more as I use it. It seems like windows 8 would make for a nicer product than ios for this specific product, but then again I'm sure if apple made an iWatch it would be nice, too

    Doubt it, why would Apple try to get in to a dwindling business. Not a huge amount of people use watches, and why would they when every single electronic device already has the time on it, it's a small market

    I think an iPod bracelet would be more interesting, for example a stainless steel band with touch capacitive buttons? I wouldn't mind using something small and simple like that, that just plays music wireless and I have quick access to.

    I think that takes the spot of "life support." ;) Obviously, you could have injections, though I doubt you'd want to go back to that after using an insulin pump. A continuous glucose monitor would also fall in to the "life support" category, though it isn't absolutely necessary I suppose. But I'd place both of those above an iWatch in terms of importance.
