Okay. don't laught about this... i've been interested to see and hopefully can afford and to own a MS watch (SPOT).

The first time i saw Fossil SPOT and it looks fantastic but am a bit cautious of how well it will work in NZ.

However as I have been using PocketPC and Smartphone and now would be a good time to get SPOT too if it is still available and the SPOT service is available in NZ.

The one that I like is calls Tissot High-T, Tissot High-T Review at SpotStop.com, Tissot High-T Review at Engaget.com and Tissot High-T at MSN Direct.

There is no MSN Direct service in New Zealand. There were rumours it would start sometime in the UK, but didn't hear anything lately. I am not sure this will ever be launched here, since it seems development on this platform has been slowed down a little.

Don't buy it unless the service is available here first.

MSN Direct uses FM bands to send the information down to the watches. You subscribe to services and load other information (calendar, tasks) via a web interface on direct.msn.com. This information is sent at appropriate times to your watch.

The US/Canada are covered, but this technology anywhere else would need huge investment. Remember that MSN NZ is represented by Xtra, and as you can imagine I have already asked about this service here - since the technology was launched - but I don't think it will happen.

bugger! :-( real shame.


Xtra could at least try make a marketing sale (given the license) to use Dick Tracy character and promote this technology! Imagine, watch that does not require you to tune the daylight saving, immediate (Xtra) email update to your watch. Xtra News update, Xtra network outage update, Xtra Ads promotion... Xtra Virus update... Xtra-TVNZ-CanWest-Prime-Sky tv programmes update.


mmmmmmmmm i see possibilities! hehehe maybe we need to put a petition out to XtraMSN to ask Xtra to bring more MSN services to here.. for example MSN subscription, MSN HOTMAIL upgrade etc. hehe....
