If such a thing were real, I would bet that:
1. It would be an accessory, rather than a standalone device (i.e. would require a smartphone, tablet, or PC to set up, sync data, and use).
2. It would have an important "lifelogging" component, like the Nike Fuelband+, the FitBit, or the Jawbone Up.
3. It would run only in-house "apps," much like the iPod nano.
Apple does not work with other companies on products. If you were looking for a red flag concerning the validity of this rumour, there it is.
Apple used Motorola chips in their systems and now uses intel, so no red flag here.
