Has an Apple exec inadvertently confirmed the iWatch?

Apple’s iWatch is of course the worst kept secret in the tech world. Yet no Apple execs have acknowledged its existence. Well not until now..

Bill Campbell, Apple board member and Silicon Valley veteran, gave a talk to employees at Intuit, the software firm to which he acts as chairman where he shared his views on wearable tech. The speech was recorded by Business Week here.

In his talk Campbell stated that there were “a lot of things going on with the application of technology to really intimate things. When you start to think about glasses or watches, they become as intimate as the cell phone was.”

Campbell had already mentioned Google Glasses in his speeches, but watches!? Is an Apple board member seriously going to big up a product format that the company is not going to be involved in but its deadly rival Samsung has already announced plans to launch into?

Thought not…
