Cards on the table: does anyone seriously want a watch they can make calls on? Really? It’s one of those gadgets that sounds way cool in theory, but falls down when you realise how much of a twonk you’ll look using it on the train.
Still, Tag Heuer might sway your opinion. Some photos have leaked out which appear to show a new watch from the company that can make calls and play MP3s, alongside its regular timekeeping duties. Presumably, this involves wireless connection to a Bluetooth headset, which would solve the embarrassment problem (well, partly). It’s claimed that Paris design firm ModeLabs is working with Tag Heuer on the device.
