Fossil introduces the Wrist PDA
At last, after a couple of years of delays and misinformation, Fossil officially announced the Palm OS based watch. The Wrist PDA with Palm OS provides a way to organize personal information. Customizable watch faces allow consumers to change their watch face to suit their own personal style.

Additional features of the Wrist PDA with Palm OS include a high density 160 x 160 pixel grayscale LCD with touch screen and backlight, 8MB RAM to store data and programs, a stylus integrated into the watch buckle for easy access and a comfortable fit, one-handed navigation using the 3-way Rocker switch and Back button, the ability to beam data to another Palm Powered device via the Infrared Port, USB HotSync support for Mac OS and Windows, and a lithium- ion rechargeable battery that lasts approximately 3-4 days based on conditions of use. The battery can be recharged with the included AC adapter.

"This is the first Palm Powered organizer that a user can carry with them all the time," said Frank Romero, Director of Technology Product for Fossil, Inc. "This product changes the usage model of Palm OS based organizers, giving users access to their personal information by simply wearing a watch."

The new Wrist PDA is available in two different brands, FOSSIL and ABACUS. The FOSSIL branded product with stainless steel case and black leather strap, can be found at Fossil stores. The FOSSIL Wrist PDA is priced at a US$249.00 USD.

The ABACUS brand Wrist PDA product has a stainless steel case and rubber strap with padded black leather inlay, will be available exclusively through a direct sales and marketing partner, Tiger Direct. The ABACUS Wrist PDA is priced at a US$199.00.
