BlackBerry Bluetooth Watch Real And In The Works!?

For a while now there have been rumors about a “BlackBerry watch” being developed by RIM. Back in May BGR was able to sit down and talk to Antoine Boucher, Vice President of Accessories Integration, about some upcoming BlackBerry accessories. During this chat Boucher indirectly mentioned the possibility of a BlackBerry Bluetooth watch being in the works.

Today CrackBerry Kevin broke the news that yes, RIM is working on a Bluetooth watch and it will be announced soon! Along with this news Kevin has provided renderings of the actual watch and some key features:

it has been designed specifically for BlackBerry from the ground up – developed by a new BlackBerry-dedicated accessory company it features an OLED screen that we hear is “big, bright and beautiful” and optimized for displaying text clearly, and thanks to OLED has solid battery life it’s designed to show you notifications and previews of messages arriving on your BlackBerry

Judging by the filename of the photos as they were sent in to us, we’re thinking it’s going to branded the inPulse smartwatch. These renderings look a lot better than a possible early prototype found by a commenter over at CB.

As always with leaked info you can consider this a rumor until RIM officially announces it which, according to Kevin, should be soon. Would you buy and wear the “inPulse smartwatch”?
