What would you like to see in a Apple watch? A full version of iOS perhaps using a top of the line retina display? Anything you can come up with, let us know!

I'm not sold on the Apple watch thing yet. Personally speaking, I don't see it benefitting me in regard to everyday living. As a tech head, I'd find a way to make use of it, but in general terms, it is not practical for me at this time. I'd prefer that Apple create an eyeglass gadget to rival Google's.

An LED Notification light for all those people who just can't live without one.

Sarcasm tag... where's the sarcasm tag on this forum editor?? :D

Neither am I quite honestly. It will need some pretty cool features for me to bite unless I won't even consider one.

For me it'd have to look like a 'proper' watch, not a small iPod taped to my wrist.

Maybe like a souped up iOS Remote app, but for iPhones. (And maybe Macs/ Apple TV too) So access to iTunes, and also messages display and caller ID.

Probably too soon for the likes of NFC - perhaps in iWatchS...

I would like to see 3rd Party apps on it so I could work out with it listening to Spotify. Also, something that would be cool is the ability to use the watch to snap pics on your phone.

Unfortunately I don't think this watch will be that product. Then again Apple may surprise me.

I hear ya. Also, a lot of people nowadays do not wear watches because of their smartphones and unless we'll be able to Facetime with it, make & receive phone calls or use it as a GPS Navigation unit, to name a few, I doubt I will be wowed by it. I hope I'm wrong though.

I wear watches and still find myself reaching for my phone to check the time. Just a habit now I suppose. I know as of today the rumor is it will run a full version of iOS but that could mean a full NEW version built just for this device.

I'm so excited for an iWatch. Been excited about it since the square nano came out endlessly hoping it would become a reality. I don't wear a watch btw but would if it was integrated with my iPhone 5.

Things i want are iMessage, Siri, Email replies, notifications and maps/directions would be awesome.. oh and its gotta look stylish and tell the time of course lol. Making a phone call on it would be so cool also talking into my wrist like a spy.

I think if it's done right, Apple could make me start wearing a watch again. With that being said, I routinely wait at least a couple of generations before investing in a new product.
