    It has been thought of and even made,
    Inpulse smart watch.

    I think it was bought out.

    The inPulse site.
    The WIMM Labs site.

    Frankly, they are both just Bluetooth enabled mini-screens. I suggested in another forum that it would be better to have a luxury watch and have the screen and led alerts hidden within the design, so you don't have to look like a complete geek.

    Sony is apparently getting into the game with their SmartWatch and LiveView micro screen.

    I am glad i didnt preorder one waaaay back when it was first announced... after being late a year or so past when they said it would be released i read all over the net that it is buggy as all get out and it seems an unacceptably large percentage of them will never pair to the bluetooth of any blackberry.

    Whats worse is all the iOS and android people that were told it would work with them too... only to find it wont pair with them at all and the customer service folks tell them on the phone "there isnt any software for those phones yet".

    Sad, i had high hopes for it.

    I would swear that in one of RIM's demo videos from the past few months I recall seeing a wrist device on a stand where RIM staff were showing stuff off. The one I saw was black, with a keypad that angled down the front of the case toward the band.

    It looked like a really cool update of the Casio Data Bank watches as much as anything else.
