    Lately there has been a lot of speculation about Apple working on a new product that is popularly believed to be a smartwatch. If the speculation turned out to be accurate, it could be a game-changing device for travelers.

    Currently, speculation regarding the possible design of the smartwatch range from a band of flexible glass to what basically amounts to a tiny iPhone strapped to the wrist. Some Apple aficionados have gone so far as to design iWatch concepts.

    Forbes Tech Contributor Anthony Kosner has written several articles analyzing the possible uses of the device and its potential role in our lives. While some Apple gurus wonder how the iWatch would differentiate itself from the current iteration of iPod Nano with a wristband accessory, Kosner suspects the watch would run micro apps and be used to sync with other, more powerful Apple products.

    My guess would be:
    - Nike FuelBand-like features (Cook is on the Nike Board and sports a FuelBand).
    - Bluetooth connectivity to your iPhone, so you can look at the main screen, and see who is calling, without fetching your phone.

    I wouldn't see much benefit to this. You'd still have to carry your phone around with you.
