Tom Warren from The Verge:

Intel just announced anti-virus software for smartwatches. Yes, that’s right, for smartwatches. The chip maker is bundling its McAfee Mobile Security suite with LG’s recently announced Watch Urbane LTE. I’m not sure why, and I don’t think Intel is either. I asked Intel CEO Brian Krzanich why a smartwatch needs anti-virus software, and he compared the wrist-worn gadgets to air conditioners.

Here you go, bloatware should be available soon on your watch, and air conditioners too“brought by McAfee antivirus.”
