Features we want in an Apple iWatch

At this point, Apple had better make the rumored iWatch, because we already have a solid list of features we want from it.


Does the world really need an Apple iWatch?

Probably not, but the only thing I'm sure of is that I've been consistently wrong when it comes to guessing what people will buy. I still remember when Apple launched the iPad and I was absolutely certain that the name "iPad" was a kiss of death. I also remember believing in my heart that the Microsoft Zune would eventually win people over.

If Apple does release a smartwatch this year (and the jury's still out on that one), it would have to solve a number of problems not already addressed by a smartphone. CNET's resident smartwatch expert Scott Stein took a stab at nine crucial features the hypothetical iWatch would need to offer. For my part, I lifted my favorite five and turned them into this week's episode of Top 5.

Enjoy, and please add your own feature requests in the comments below.
