Of Will.i.am’s self-made smartwatch coming this July

If recent history is anything to go by Will.i.am hasn’t exactly had the best of luck when it comes to hardware products. Nevertheless, he is determined to prove his critics wrong; this time with what seems to be a smartwatch of some sort.

The rapper-turned-entrepreneur showed off his own smartwatch during a recent appearance on a British chat show, Alan Carr: Chatty Man.

In his defense, Will.i.am is no stranger to tech, with Intel naming him its Director Of Creative Innovation.

However, being the skeptic that I am, I will be keen to point out that we only get to see a few glimpses of the device. So nothing to support his claims that it will stream music via Bluetooth and make calls all on its own, oh and not forgetting the impressive ability to tweet.
