Will.I.Am to Get His Own Smartwatch

Musician-turned-entrepreneur Will.I.Am has lined up Deutsche Telekom AG to sell his ‘dial’ smartwatch in Europe.

The device, the latest gadget developed by the Black Eyed Peas star, is based on a self-learning voice-based operating system. The product can be used to call, text, e-mail, track fitness and stream music -- and unlike wearables including Apple Inc.’s watch, dial isn’t tethered to a smartphone, according to the German carrier, which said on Monday it will begin sales this year.
