So, strictly speaking, they *could* be talking to Intel about the manufacture of a SoC component for the hypothetical iWatch. Perfectly reasonable.

Doesn't mean the rumor is or isn't accurate; just that Intel's involvement isn't proof of anything. They could just as easily be talking about the real-time clock function of the chipset for the next MacBook Air.
Apple's relationships with its suppliers are like those of restaurant chefs with their grocers. If "working with" is intended to imply a collaboration, then the rumour will be false. However, I agree that its meaning is ambiguous.

Whatever you say, chief.
