Short Version: The Kempler & Strauss W Phone watch is a great idea. It’s a compact, unlocked GSM phone that makes a great conversation piece and is fun – if a bit maddening – to use. Can it ever be your “first phone?” Absolutely not, but at $199 unlocked you can’t get a GSM phone – at least one stuffed inside a watch – for much cheaper.

One thought on “My review of the Kempler & Strauss W Phone”
  1. I just get mine and let me tell you my story, i was at the mall and a teen ager look at my watch and ask me what is that watch i told hem is my phone, he get so excited about it after i show him how it works that later on i found that all his friends where following me all over the mall to ask me to show them the phone.
    I will not use it as my primary phone but i can tell you that is the coolest and most complete gadget i have. it includes everything.
    The coolest thing is that i can store all my mp3 files in my watch and use the Bluetooth device as my wireless remote control to listen to all my songs wirelessly by just connecting the included earphones to the bluethooth.
    The game included is a joke actually I don’t like it but the rest of the functions are grate
