    What are the "must have" features the Google watch should have?

    I will state that obviously this is all speculation on our part, but when and if Google reveals their upcoming smartwatch, what features are a "must have" for this watch?

    Heh. The million dollar question.

    I'm a fan of minimalist designs although not of the "bangle" type mock ups for the I watch.

    The Sony slmartwatch 2 is ok but maybe a little less square.

    Google devices have never been known for their fantastic battery life. It's a trade off, awesome connectivity through Google Apps but a little more battery drain. Since it is simply a BTLE connection though and not a stand alone device I anticipate it will be better.

    Waterproof
    Run regular Android apps
    GPS
    Bluetooth
    SIM, because if I still need a phone I might as well just use Pebble.
    Color eInk display for always on and better battery life.

    I think you might be disappointed. I'm imagining Glass but on your wrist.

    Qi wireless charging
    Waterproof
    Open platform for apps
    New section in google play for apps
    3 days use at the least.
    Always on face.
    Deep integration to Hangouts and all Google core apps.
    Probably voice control (not really a need for me)

    A wow. Google and apple need to show something impressive. Show the smaller players a new direction or a new way of thinking.
