Apple iWatch Features: What do you want to see?

Along with 4K TVs, next generation consoles and Google Glass, 2013 is set to be the year of the smart watch.

The Pebble kicked off proceedings earlier this year with efforts from Casio and the I’m Watch following shortly after. Now Sony has entered the fray once again with its updated SmartWatch 2, an Android-friendly timepiece that is water-resistant just like the Sony Xperia Z and works via NFC and Bluetooth 3.0.

The best, however, could be yet to come. Samsung has previously confirmed it’s working on a smart watch, while the rumour mill continues to fill with talk that Apple is planning a smart watch dubbed the ‘Apple Watch’.

Current smart watches have received a mixed response largely down to the lack of captivating features to convince users to check the wrist over reaching for their smartphone.

Apple, like it did with the iPad, has a proven track record of creating products we never thought we needed desirable, and could do the same with a smart watch. The question is, what will it have to do to make an ‘iWatch’ a worthwhile purchase?

So, we want to ask you the TrustedReviews readers, what features would convince you to buy an Apple smart watch or a rival Samsung smart watch?
