Well aren't you hard to please. With high end audio hardware as you say, I really doubt an adapter or inline microphone is going to be the quality 'bottleneck' (for lack of a better term) when we're talking about a watch or phone...
This is all possible, but I mean...look at the level of development this will take. You'll be changing the fundamental way the watch is meant to function...all so you can use it in a way where there's already existing alternatives (e.g. the tizen galaxy gears). I don't really see anyone tackling this. Voice messaging, sure...but not live access to the mic for two-way communication.
