    It would make the watch a little bulky but if they plan to thin it out I would like to see it stay the same and give me a universal type infrared controller so I can control more than my  TV

    I use to own a watch I bought in a tech magazine with that feature and use to enjoy changing the channel at local bars and restaurants until it died on me

    Nah, personally it wouldn't interest me, more of a gimmick than anything. Had it on a Samsung Gear 2 Neo, never used it. I'd rather see the watches resources put to other uses, as for me I'd like to see more health related uses. Perhaps native sleep monitoring, pulse oxymeter.

    If it made the watch bulkier than it is, then hell no. if it made the watch more expensive because of having it, then hell no. If it was just an added extra that didn't impact the cost or size then I guess so.

    I had one on a watch a few years back and it was nothing more than a gimmick I used to control the TV at my local bar. The joke got very old, very quick.

    And this is coming from someone whose entire house is using NEST, HUE, Harmony and other smartphone controlled appliances and amenities.

    It wouldn't bother me if it was included or not, especially if the watch size remained the same.

    The watch size, as it is, is fine...and could only be a little thinner. If the infrared controller would necessitate a bulkier case, I'd decline.

    Useless. We are getting bluetooth remotes for reason. No way I will have use for an infrared led on the watch..
