Looks like its actually going to happen. I wonder how far and how big the smartwatch market will stretch too. Hey, many people doubted the iPad and now look at it!

If Apple does it ,everyone will do it.So no wonder that there will be like thousands of alternatives to smartwaches after the iWatch is out.
But as every time,only Sammy and Apple will have the big dogs.

I would be interested if the battery lasted longer than a few days and if the watch band could be changed so you could make it a sports watch or dress watch at will.

Ha! 1.2 million may be shipped but half of them will be returned.

I'll be one of those 1.2 million if they integrate it to access most of the phones features, including being able to change my music. Running or riding is fun to do with music playing, but it's a pain when I have to listen to a song with the wrong tempo/bpm. Make the battery last a full 24 hrs actual use so that I can get two days of riding without having to recharge.
