OK, seriously, I know it's all chic and all to have gadgets like these that make you more like Dick Tracy or whatever, but this is kinda... well... tacky.

What do you think?

To be honest and obviously serious, it's nice and all but just stupid looking.

Your cellphone already tells your time. So just go through with the stress of taking it out of your pocket. =P

That probably costs more than a decent cellphone that can take pictures, be a phone, and tell the time. Cell phones also look nice than that

Not an appealing product in my opinion.

As much I complain about things like this (me being the one with the MP3 player watch, before that just the USB storage watch, before that the touch-screen watch organizer, it goes on...), and I know the thing looks highly cumbersome and ugly, but eventually I, too, will own one.

And, anyone who knows me, probably knows that's true. But, in the meantime, NTT Docomo (the Japanese telephone giant) makes a more sensible model:


The Wristomo -- folds out like a cell phone, but retracts to fit around the wrist like a bracelet or watch. It's just a phone, no camera capabilities, no color screen.

It's apparently waterproof as well.

for some god awful reason I don't believe it's water proof. Because I think it's some sort of model that won't go into sell... To be honest... convienience has become overrated. V_V

Now I'd buy the cellphone, camera, calendar thingy model that Zabuza posted. That looks appealing, less cumbersom/ugly, and its foreign!!

And it does sell, it is available (if only in Japan under the NTT Docomo license), and it is waterproof.

If they make a model that accepts a SIM card, then I'll import one simply for the novelty of having a phone replace my watch. But, would that mean that I'd have to get an MP3 player to replace my phone?

well i think that the camera watch phone is to big and combersome. aslo since its on your wrist the screen is proably going to get scratched and dammaged. plus try wearing a long sleaved shirt over that. i dont even wear a watch because its too unconfortable when im wearing long sleaved shirts.
