Watch Phones

Would You Rock a Watch Phone?

The watch phone is one of those cheesy gadgets of yesterday's movies come to reality, but they are still largely relegated to novelty stores. Even so, large companies like LG and Samsung have offered their versions of watch phones over the years in the hopes that we'll want to let our inner James Bond (or Inspector Gadget) come out. Would you slap one of these on your wrist?

Clockwise from left: The W Phonewatch ($200) from Kempler & Strauss comes with a Bluetooth-enabled Communicator for handsfree chatting and features a 1.5-inch touchscreen, camera, music player, and texting capabilities. The bare-bones Burg Watch Phone in Midnight Black ($100) takes it back to old-school with an analog numberpad. Samsung's S9110 watchphone ($716 unlocked) may be the thinnest one on the market, but, much like the similarly priced LG GD910 ($650 unlocked), it is still jam-packed with all the cell phone features you've come to expect, like a camera, music player, calendar, and Bluetooth. Newest on the market, the Rebel Swap Watch in Black ($230) has many of the same features and a shape that may have people thinking you're wearing your Nano.

Yeah I would totally get one of these! i don't tend to wear watches but i'd make an exception for this one. I agree with Avelina. I'd never lose my phone this way. ALso if I could make it like a prepaid satellite phone so it'd be perfect for emergencies (kidnapping? fall off some crazy who knows what and need 911 services with no cell service?) I would TOTALLY drop a sweet couple hundys on that.

frickin' totally! I have had several in the past (when I was on AT&T where I could just switch my sim). Although now that I'm on Sprint's service, none (currently) will work.
