    Intel says it's working on smartwatch; mum on possible Apple link

    Intel's chief technology officer has confirmed the company is working on a smartwatch, although he would not address rumors of a collaboration with Apple.

    The timepiece is one of a range of "experimental devices in the lab," Intel Chief Technology Officer Justin Rattner was quoted by VentureBeat, as part of the chip-maker's investigation of "novel display devices."

    "The watch is kind of -- if you want to put the time on it, that's fine. But if you're talking about texting today, wouldn't it be nice if you could just look at your wrist?"

    A number of companies are working on a wearable mobile-connected device, with Microsoft rumored to be working on one, but most speculation has been focusing on Apple and a possible collaboration with Intel on a smartwatch with a 1.5-inch display that could hook up to an iPhone via Bluetooth to display incoming calls, emails, and calendar entries through a connection to the smartphone.

    Google has also announced it is currently developing a smartwatch that will connect to an Android smartphone.

    • Irrespective, I use my phone as a watch, haven't worn watch in years. Hope intel can take note of Apple's policy of secrecy. Publishing road maps and internal development progress, does little to put in place the WOW, factor. Usually we get disappointed with delayed, bring to market, which was prevalent in the P.O reign. Worse still, competitors get a target to aim at, with respect to their future R&D efforts.

      Luckily, intel is so far ahead in process technology, competitors are dead on arrival. Expect Samsung to announce significant change to ATOM is GS5.

    • i dont need a watch to tell me which way the wind is blowing in the 505
