    If you are talking about the impulse watch like here: inPulse smartwatch | Get apps and alerts on your wrist. Then yes I had one. I ended up returning it because it was too much trouble to mess with. The font is really small to read and the one button scheme was annoying to me. Also, it has to stay connected to your phone through Bluetooth which was a pretty bad drain on the battery life of the phone. Not to mention I found the battery life less than impressive on the watch. I also didn't like the small screen size. Sorry, I know this is a pretty negative review but those are my thoughts on it.

    I have one. I actually love it, sadly I can't wear it though. It works as well as advertised and it is very convenient to have your alerts on your wrist. The alerts work when the phone is locked also. You literally just look at your wrist to see what you got and from who, Instead of hearing the alert, taking your phone out of your pocket, unlocking it, going to the place where the alert is and then reading the alert. It also works on my Android devices. And has apps you can download to it using your phone.

    Function wise its great. The only problem is its not water resistant at all. My work involves me being around water too much to wear the watch everyday. So I used to just wear it on the weekends. Then I needed a watch for the weekdays and eventually I got sick of switching back and forth. Mine has been packed away in a box for the last year or so. It still looks brand new. To be honest, I should just sell it, because its highly unlikely that my situation will ever change to allow me to begin wearing it daily.

    That is the big problem with the inpulse. It may not be useful for you depending on your job or lifesytle. If they had made it more rugged it would be a great product.

    If it tells time like RIM or is as accurate as RIM is then you will always be late and forced to say "coming soon"...

    LoL Tim, that's funny!!!

    I want to see BB notifications integrated with Google Glasses or some type of AR overlay.

    What is this pulling my phone out to look who is calling/messaging me. This isn't 2003!!!!

    That's my major downside also. I bartend, and wouldn't be able to wear it at work. Not that I have tons of down time to be checking my phone consistantly, but to go get a bottle of liquor or take out trash and check my watch instead of grabbing my phone, would be a plus. I fear that if I bought one it would end up in my drawer like yours. Would you be willing to sell yours?

    Wow that is kind of a crazy coincidence. I install automated liquor dispensing equipment in bars and casinos. That's why I can't wear it at work. I'm always covered in alcohol from fixing leaks or piping in new connections. Does your bar use the guns to pour drinks?

    As far as selling it - yeah, I could be interested in parting with it. I've kept it as a collectible more than anything. It was sort of a failed product and I don't imagine they made very many of them. But the wife would be happy to see it gone. Lol she has asked me numerous times when I was going to start wearing it again. I will charge it up and get some pictures of it. If you are interested, shoot me a PM and we can discuss it further.
