cool idea & look , but .. the only tech data available now (web page): "rock-solid stability and amazing functionalities" .. and the 50% advance pre-order for a device that hasn't been reviewed and from a company that has no market history ? ... keep my fingers crossed however

Hopefully it will live up to the advance billing. Even though it needs to be linked to a smartphone, it still appears very useful. It would be much cooler to just check your watch (arm) during a meeting rather than pulling out your cell phone (which should be banned for all, including managers and executives, at meetings).

They will have to change the name of the device from wrist watch to arm watch. Looks pretty cool, but I don't know if I want to recharge my watch every night.

Very cool. Given that I just got off of a flight back from ESC Boston, my mind jumps to that context. I can see one of two things happening. Either, we'll now all have a way to keep ourselves digitally entertained even take off and landing, or the FAA will end up making us all take off and turn off our wrist watches at take off and landing.

It's not ARM based; it's WRIST based. Sorry. ;-)

Well, I guess I'll wait until they have a quarter 1080p display. Perhaps if it wrapped around my wrist and then could open up...

Actually I used to have a Cell Phone watch a couple years ago. Visit http://www.cellphonewatch.com/ to get a flavor for what is available. They are coming along, but not with Android yet, so I am waiting patiently.

oh really a cool gadget, I'm waiting for a day if a cell phone can be completely put onto such a device.

Way cool. I'm going to pass on the $20,000 version, but I may be able to swing the aluminum version.

Rick Looking over the I'm Watch website I see you can pre-order for delivery before the end of November 2011. I see it costs 249 euro (about $350) in color finish aluminum plus something for shipment OR it costs 14,999 euro (about $20,000) in white gold and diamonds. For the more expensive option I would hope they would deliver to the door by hand with no extra charge!

I recently received an email from someone we'll call Martin (because that's his name). Martin's message was short and sweet. In its entirety it read: "You need to see this!"
