This is exclusively for people who are TRYING to be tech dorks. No real geek can actually WANT one of these things for anything other than to say they have one. Otherwise, you are really far gone... Just saying.
I am sure we will see more of these soon enough. It's really a convenient way of having everything with you, though making a phone call really still needs you to remember the Bluetooth earpiece. So from that perspective it's not any different than having a separate phone. I wonder what battery life would be for such a tiny device.
I actually really like the idea of this. Getting rid of my cell phone would give my pockets more room for a future Zune HD. And it would be nice to have a wrist watch again instead of pulling out a cell phone to just check the time. I just don't want to pay 600 Euros for it... I might be willing to go as high as 50 USD.
This would be awesome if I could have multiple devices with the same phone #. If I knew I was going into a situation where the screen could get scratched I would leave it behind and take my pocket phone instead. If I'm just going to work, I don't need my pocket phone if I'm wearing this. Of course, cell phone companies would never allow the functionality you get with a land line when they can charge extra forcing you to use separate lines.

As for the product. I think its pretty neat concept. I remember the pager watches long ago. I would actually wear one just because it would mean me not losing my cellphone or dropping it and not having to put it in my pocket.
I disagree with the charging comment. If you charge your phone nightly then you wont have to worry about running out of juice.
Well, I wouldn't mind having one thing less in my pocket and it would work great for calls in my car (bluetooth stereo interface) but I can't see myself walking around with a bluetooth headset making calls and being that guy (the guy that you can't tell if he's talking to you and why its sounds like he's in the middle of a conversation with you that you only just became aware of because he was staring at you while talking [and his headset is on the other side of his head that you can't see]) I hate it when that happens! I feel kinda funny when a stranger asks me what I'm doing later...
I never forget my watch, but I frequently forget my cell phone. When this comes down in price to $100 I might be interested. Besides by the times that happens I am sure the battery in one of these will last as long as any other phone we have today and it will hold 64GB of music
Nothing but a fad. Looks cool, but you always have to have your headset by your side (or stuck in your ear). I use a headset in the car, but I would really hate to always have to have it on me. And what if you forget to charge your headset? Then I guess your watch phone would ring, but you cannot pick up the call. Also, I have a really nice Omega watch and I would not be able to wear it if I have this James Bond thingy.
