"It’s our intentiont to deliver interesting wearable technology – we are developing a watch which will be coming out next year,"R ick Osterloh, SVP product management, said at the event.

"Our main focus is that we will start to solve a real user problem in that there are no wearable products you want to wear all because they are all extremely ugly – so we want to solve the problem of making this a style item like jewelery or clothing," he continued.

"We’ll be announcing [the watch] in a few months so stay tuned but [wearable] is very interesting to us."
