Your wristwatch as a bluetooth caller display unit for mobile phone

Now here is a 100% cool and very innovative idea for technology - a wristwatch that instead of trying to be a phone, or a calculator, or something else totally unusable, simply displays the caller id info when your phone rings - and hopefully a function to reject/silence the call...

or it vibrates to alert the user about incoming calls. and then can accept or reject calls, and pair it up with bluetooth headset. BRILLIANT!

Yes....the watch notifies you by vibrating on an in coming call (or text message). Caller ID is displayed (if name is in your phone. Otherwise, you see the caller's number on a very cool OLED display. A single button press silences the phones ringer. A second button press rejects the call (sending it to voice mail).

well, maybe not a week... but more than 2 days.... i have enough stuff that needs charging... spend half my life charging stuff up...

Battery life - approx. 7 days of full use on each charge. After battery runs low, BT radio is shut off providing another 7 days of analog timekeeping. Watch works very well with BT headsets. Glance at the watch to see who's calling....take call on your BT headset. Compatibility limited to Sony Ericsson phones.

Why would i need this? My phone already vibrates or alerts me to calls/texts and also has a neat callerid function.

Your watch is so easily accessible, and when your phone rings, you would only need turn your wrist to see who is calling.

Great for someone like me who uses a big device in a holster - i hate pulling it out just to see whos ringing.

Id love to get hold of one of these things to see how well they work. I guess it might be a while before an NZ distributor picks them up...
