Google is reportedly working on a game console that would be powered by its Android operating system plus a smartwatch too !

It's aim ? to undercut rival Apple ... but do we need yet another game console and a smart watch ?

My watch tells me the time very accurately, and has done so for a long time. I assume it will go on doing it. I don't really want it to be smarter than that.

The games console project is another matter. I'm not qualified to pass judgement on that, but it will involve some serious R&D money, and some serious marketing money.

"What console do they make then?"

Something to do with their smart TV. In Apple's vision of gaming, the iPhone or iPad is the console whilst the Apple TV is the receiver, thanks to a something called AirPlay

*i’m Watch

What your smartphone was missing before is finally here. The world’s first real smartwatch. It connects via Bluetooth and brings you calls, SMS, e-mails, notifications and any app directly to your wrist*.

Your for £299..... NO..... it's been reduced to £219.

So the answer is it's a mini ish smart phone that has a wrist strap
