If apple would add features to the nano like Bluetooth, a mic/speaker, and integrate ways to see different notifications and respond to them through Siri. Just like you can with a Bluetooth headset. It would definitely give these watches some competition. Being able to hear/feel through vibration, see and respond to notifications from your wrist or clipped to your shirt all without having to take your phone out of your pocket would be awesome.

It's about time before someone sues them for some crapy licensing fee, since that's the best way to make money now a days. I like the idea of the smart wrist watch and I hope to see them grow.

If apple added BT 4.0 to the nano and added the ability to see incoming calls, texts and Siri integration, it would give me everything I could possibly want from a smart watch. But I don't see it happening.

You read my mind.

This is brilliant!!! Adding a feature to look for contacts would be nice. This watch reminds me of Casio and its databank watches back in the days :)
