    Hi
    For any UK members! Will I. Am Seems to be wearing some sort of smartwatch (actually two. One on each wrist!). On the voice.

    Anyone know what they are?

    Yes he does seem to be wearing two watches with bold color displays. Maybe Galaxy Gears? Or maybe Omates?

    I guess what's throwing me is the strap. It looks cuff like rather than a band. But I guess he could have customised!

    Maybe he has a prototype for something that is coming? I'm still waiting to see the latest episode as BBC iplayer has been slow to post it.

    This piqued my interet too. A bit of web searching led me to the Nissan Nismo smartwtch:

    Will. I. am. The Voice BBC Smartwatch?-nismo-2-650x0.jpg

    They announced it last year to integrate with their cars. Not sure if Will.I.Am has anything to do with Nissan or Nismo, or if he own a Nissan (or if it is even this watch...).

    On him wearing two, I thought perhaps he might have two phones with a watch connected to each....?

    It certainly looks like that watch!

    Found this on his website. Not sure its relevant but. Hey.


    As a musician, producer, director and advocate for education, he is an enthusiastic user of technologies in both his professional and personal lives. *In recognition of his ability to harness technology to enhance entertainment, creativity and communication, Intel Corporation appointed will as Director of Creative Innovation in 2011.*

    I've been loving the Nismo watch. I hope it runs Android and someone can put a custom ROM on it. Maybe Nissan will have all their apps removable (but I doubt it).

    @iamwill What smartwatch are you wearing? Is it a Nissan Nismo, or something else? And do you have 2 of them on?

    So maybe it's a prototype of his as of yet unnamed smartwatch?

    Must see MOAR. But no, I don't need another phone, just one that links to it.

    Then again, I'm on Verizon LTE. If I was on GSM and could simply pop out my SIM and have my wrist phone for the day I'd be very interested.
