Who has vision to crack the "smartwatch"?

Samsung's Galaxy Gear is the latest attempt by tech heavyweights to exploit a brand new form factor. While the market potential is immense redefining the genre is easier said than done.

The smartwatch could be as revolutionary as the smartphone - an intelligent device on our wrist that connects our bodies to data and us to the world - but only a handful of companies have the heft and vision to be able to pull it off.

It's not through lack of trying. Watchmakers and others have been adding calculators, calendars and wireless data connections to wrist-straps for at least 30 years.
