Whoa! This is something so cool, you knew it had to come eventually -- an Android powered watch that connects to your smartphone (Android, iPhone 4, future BlackBerry devices) via bluetooth. We've seen similar products, but they were more mundane things, and simply a data pipe back to your phone. The i'mWatch runs its own custom version of Android, and comes bundled with a set of apps that you can run right on the 1.54" TFT display. Not only can you make and receive calls and texts, but you have access to Email, weather info, stock prices and market data, Foursquare, Facebook, Twitter -- the list goes on.
All this is running on a Freescale ARM9 IMX233 CPU, with 64 MB of RAM and 4 GB of storage. In other words, it should do everything listed really, really well. Combine that with a 600mAh battery for 2 hours talk time or 48 hours standby time, and you have one of the coolest accessories you're likely to run across. It's not cheap -- it checks in at €249 (about $360 US), and that price is only good until June 30, but the good things in life never are. Check out the source link for more details and ordering info.
