Many companies have tried making a stab at a wrist watch that works in conjunction with your cell phone. Why not have one that actually is a cell phone?Now, I’m not going to make any pretenses about this quad-GSM watch phone – with it being available for only$100, I’ve got my suspicion of it’s quality of the piece, either as a phone or a watch. However, in terms of a fun gadget to play with, it’s worth a look.
Up top, you’ve got a 1.8 inch display running at 240 x 240. So, while you’re not going to play Angry Birds on the piece, you should be able to tell the time, and pluck out the phone number you’re calling with a stylus.
Another thing you’re not going to get from your average watch is a built-in camera. Sure, at 640 x 480 resolution, it’s not going to win any prizes, but it would be a camera you always have with you. As an added bonus, it can play your MP3s, so it’s a good thing there’s a slot for a micro-SD card.
Is this going to replace anything in your collection – be it phone or watch? Very likely not. However, as I said, it is an intriguing little gadget, and highlights how far technology truly has come. No, the specs (200 mhz processor?) aren’t going to light you up – but the fact that we have a cell phone in a watch format is really something.
If you want to play around with one yourself, head on over to ChinaVision and place an order. Just have a healthy sense of caveat emptor with this one.
