    So I have a Bluetooth enabled Vizio television, which originally came with a bluetooth remote but broke because of its poor quality, and I've been having to use an IR remote since. I have a pair of wireless headphones which I'll wear and go do things around the house while still listening to whatever I'm watching. The one thing that bothers me is that I have no way of pausing or lowering/raising the volume if something important comes up. Now I was thinking of a small device, not necessarily a watch. It wouldn't have all of the buttons a usual remote does, just a play/pause button, a volume up button, and a volume down button. I mostly use my TV to watch Netflix, which explains the need for the play/pause button. Does this sound possible?

    Perhaps some Arduino and my iPhone?
