    I'm a watch person, and by that I mean little mechanical devices with sprockets and dials, not a wrist Droid. I could still see other people using something like that.

    Dick Tracy did it already.

    I'm also a watch person. When I can't find my watch when I go out, I feel weird not wearing one. If I wanted a super fancy watch, it would need to be a weapon. Classy. Bond style.

    I haven't been wearing one in a couple of months (mind broke and I can't really afford a new one right now) and it sucks.

    I haven't worn a watch in over ten years, and yet I really want this.

    I haven't worn a watch in years. I have maybe 30 watches
    sitting in my dresser with dead batteries. Gave up using
    them when cell phones got small enough to carry in your
    pocket. My phone does all that so the watch is useless.

    Cool gadget, would never wear it. It's not much harder to stick my hand in my pocket to grab my phone, and then bring it up to look at it. Not to mention I already have enough shit to charge.

    im kind of surprised that someone hasn't come out with a watch phone, dick tracy style, just have to always use a blue tooth or some such thing, voice recognition is pretty decent now days, i love my cell phone but i have always thought they were way too big, (i remember whey the bag phones were all the rage) even now i have a "smaller" smart phone

    I always thought all your typos were yours. Are you saying sometimes you're dictating your posts to a secretary? :action-sm

    This reminds me of the stupid watch I had in high school that was the remote for my car's keyless entry/alarm. Thought I was so cool.

    I actually had one of these. The data would get transferred from your computer SCREEN onto the watch. Thought I was the coolest:

    These are kind of like that, they link with your phone and have a lot of linked functions like music and caller ID on the watch. I wouldn't be surprised to see a complete all-in-one watch/phone soon, though, especially with Bluetooth hands-free devices.

    It looks like Sony is ripping off a watch someone is developing with crowd-sourced funding.
