it is a gret idead, not sure it $150 would be woth it thoughfor the msrp, compared to a kindle for example at the non subsidized for $99 and that is a much bigger screen with wifi. still would be interesting, might splurge and buy at $150, but if they managed to sell em at $110 or less it'd fly off the shelves imo, the $115 to get one though as part of the initial grouping is certainly a good option if i had a droid or ios phone I'd bite at $115, unfortunatly it says they aren't supporting WebOS/palm
Great idea, i think of it more like an improved version of the Nike+ Wristband that i have that lets you keep track of your workout when using the iOS Nike+ app with compatible sport shoes, this is great, i might donate a few hundred dollars to their cause.
I am the type that takes it off for NOTHING. Yes, that means shower, sleep and sex. I don't remove it from my wrist unless I absolutely have to, which has been zero up until my recent job. Been a Timex guy since I was 12. So that is 13 years constantly wearing a watch. Only removing it to replace the battery, band, or taking it off to go through security.
[citation][nom]a_gert[/nom]Lets be honest, though. If you can remember to plug your phone/tablet in nightly, you can remember to take your watch off and plug it in before you go to bed one night a week.[/citation]
Watch is something I don't want to have to think about. It should be simple and reliable, not requiring constant maintenance/recharging.

I agree. I don't always use a watch, but when I do, I want to grab it off the counter, where it has probably been sitting for weeks without me using it, and to put it on. I don't wear a watch every day and don't see the point.
This isn't really marketed to watch people. It is marketed to the 95% of the population that just uses their cell phone to tell the time. To those people, having to charge a device once a week is no big deal. Its more of a wrist/phone interface that also shows the time.
I always wear a watch a citizen eco drive and the battery lasts a lifetime I don't want to be messing with a clunky secondary cell phone like brick strapped to my wrist. I don't get why you need something to relay info from your phone to your wrist.
