Just five months after Will.i.am's launched the Puls smart cuff, a wristband featuring wearable technology, he has now announced a new collaboration with Italian fashion label Gucci Timepieces to create (yet another) a super snazzy smart gadget.

This smart watch will enable users to call, send and receive texts and emails, play music, pull up maps and calendars, track fitness and even "instruct" a digital personal assistant by voice command. Best of all, this device won't require a smartphone to operate.

As this isn't Will.i.am's first foray into the tech world, fans can expect good, innovative things from this stylish new collaboration. "In developing together a device that is both fashionable and technologically advanced, we will create something that is unique in the marketplace," he said during the launch.  

Further details and release dates have yet to be announced so stay tuned!
