Watch: Will.i.Am Reveals His New Smartwatch Project In The U.K.
Will.i.Am stopped by U.K. talk show Alan Carr: Chatty Man to show off his latest venture: a new smartwatch. Though not explicitly called a “smartwatch,” the producer shared that he used his own money to develop the wrist-worn device, and showed off some of its features.

He also played music from the device, sharing that it is compatible with Bluetooth headphones and allows access to Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. And according to a recent tweet (which he may or may not have done from the device), the new smart watch will drop this summer:
