I'm Watch World's First 'Smart' Watch

[02/12/11] 

The ‘I’m Watch’ is a smartphone in watch form. It’s the first timepiece to run on the Google Android operating system and it’s very cool, if a little impractical. Can you imagine taking a phone call on your watch or writing an email? It would be very uncomfortable unless you were double jointed, plus you could just buy a smartphone instead.

Criticisms aside, it is a ground breaking innovation priced at €249 and it’s the type of toy that people will poke for hours. Key functions include email, Facebook, music and stock market data while it’s also available in several colours such as blue, red and green. It sadly doesn’t have WiFi - a major flaw - but it does have Bluetooth connectivity and it only weighs 70grams which makes it very fortunate it’s strapped to your wrist. You’d never find it otherwise.

It starts shipping on January 30, has 4GB of storage and operates on 64MB of RAM. The battery, meanwhile, provides roughly three hours of power on speakerphone or two days on standby but the best thing are the stares you'll get from strangers when you’re barking orders into your watch. You'll look like a mad man who thinks he's stuck in Thunderbirds.

I'm future.
