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  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  and place an order.  Just have a healthy sense of caveat emptor with this one.
