Shortly after Apple introduced their new Apple Watch, the knives came out. One of the leading Swiss watch companies headed by Jean-Claude Biver lashed out at the Apple Watch for being too feminine amongst other things. Of course what he didn't reveal at that time was that his company was secretly racing to come up with a smartwatch that would eventually compete with Apple. In late October we reported that "Jean-Claude Biver, president of LVMH's watch division stated that "Maybe in nine months, we will have a smartwatch." Biver went on to say that he wasn't sure yet which technology partner that they would dance with yet. Yesterday a rumor surfaced pointing to Intel as likely being the partner that they'll work with to power their first smartwatch.
