The watch does not show up as a mic in Android BT settings. And I don't know of any BT profile that have audio in without having audio out too.

Or you know, you could get headphones/earphones with a mic...Most phones tend to include a cheap set.

A cheap set, key word here being "cheap", good headphones do not include mics.

Sure they can. They also make adapters so you can use a microphone with any set of headphones.

I'm very iffy about these kinds of things. I usually use a DAC which is connected to my headphones. Again, the point is not that there are alternates but that this is an option I would like to have, I use very expensive audio gear, I'd hate to ruin that experience with an inline mic-adapter thing (or buy one with good wiring, which would cost reasonable amount of money...etc).

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.

Sounds like a good enough reason to try it yourself
