Foxconn is showcasing a smartwatch that can be wirelessly connected to the iPhone, reports WantChinaTimes.

The watch can be used to measure a user's vital signs such as respiration and heartbeat, as well as check phone calls and Facebook posts. If your vital signs aren't within the optimal range the device will make suggestions on how to improve them.

"With such a device, you can keep your phone in your pocket and simply check all kinds of messages on your watch," Hon Hai chairman Terry Gou told shareholders.

The company plans to add new features to the device in the future, such as fingerprint detection.

Apple has also been rumored to be making a smartwatch, already dubbed the 'iWatch'.

I would like a watch that acts like a password with one off password transfer! A memory stick port to put data into the IPhone there is a lot of things that could put into a watch!
