Will.i.am is launching his own smartwatch
Out in July
Black Eyed Peas frontman Will.i.am has revealed plans to launch a smartwatch, which he promises is unlike any on the market. Where other products rely on connection to a mobile device, Will.i.am's will include a dialling function and therefore presumably a sim card.
The star revealed a prototype of the watch on British TV show Alan Carr's 'Chatty Man', explaining that the device would be fully connected to social media and will also be ready to "work out with" via bluetooth headphones. The brief shot of the watch showed that the face is similar to that of the Microsoft Cortana and Will.i.am later tweeted to confirm that the device would be available in the market come July.
