While Apple loyalists wait patiently for the rumored iWatch to be announced, Dew Motion is kicking the tires on the whole smartwatch thing with the Dew Motion iStick Playtime. The curiously named iStick Playtime is actually a sports watch that connects to your smartphone using Bluetooth. It is designed to stat track your runs, hikes and swims. However, it also reads text messages, helps you write them and can take calls.

The Dew Motion iStick Playtime gets the "stick" in its name from the joystick-like control used to operate it. In addition to the aforementioned functions, the iStick Playtime can also play music and comes with sports apps. Dew Motion has taken to Indiegogo to seek $250,000 of funding to help take the iStick from concept to reality. Stats for Pseudo Smartphone Sports Watches Trending: Older & Mild
