Ok, now for the pros and cons.
1. Pairs and Connects to the phone via bluetooth easily (Auto-reconnects after first pair, Auto-disconnects and lets you know when the phone is out of range and reconnects when back in range).
2. Stylish Stainless Steel bracelet that is comfortable to wear.
3. The vibrations are mostly quiet, but are very noticeable by the wearer.
4. Has a bright backlit LCD that can be seen even in the sun.
5. The the LCD light only comes on when you push one of the 2 buttons and tuns off after ~3 seconds to save power.
6. Displays Battery Life (~48-60 hours of standby time) Time, and caller ID.
7. Caller ID is not just the numbers as mentioned in the product description. It does display the name from your contact list. (This may vary depending on phone type).
8. You can accept a call by pressing the Bottom button and reject a call by pressing the top button.
9. Charging time of 1-2 hours.
10. Works on all call settings Silent, Vibrate, and Ring.
1. The Time is only displayed in Military (24 Hour) time.
2. This device is not in the least bit waterproof, so be careful when washing your hands. (If you do happen to get it wet, Turn off and let dry completely. the device should return to normal functionality and the screen will look normal again.
3. When low on battery the backlight may not turn on.Read more ›
- You cannot have a regular headset as well as this bracelet connected to your cell phone at the same time. The reason is that the bracelet acts like a headset from the phone's perspective. You might have more luck if you own a stereo Bluetooth headset.
- While I can confirm that the display does in fact show the caller's name (if stored in your cell phone), it does however not scroll or give you the option to toggle between name and number.
- The bracelet will not fit well on a smaller wrist
You will be much better off getting one of those still available Bluetooth watches (such as those produced by Sony Ericsson).
It will buzz to let you know you're receiving a call and show the number on the "watch" face
-thats about all of em...
It does not alert on text messages or any other alerts, only on receiving phone calls.
It has an unusual charger that does not fit well. Almost everything these days is micro-usb, fall in line or fall behind.
As far as a "security measure" as it was toted to me on several sites looking at these, While paired to my Droid2, I was still able to travel about 40 feet inside my work, around corners and through walls without the signal dying out. Anywhere outside of a flat open field, 40 ft is a long ways away someone can walk with your phone before you get the notice that its no longer connected.
All in all:
Id say don't waste the money, theyre are some other items that may be coming out that are a newer/fresher take on this, this one and the rubber band version are not worth it.
>How to use:
a) The Bluetooth was a little tricky to pair the first time, so i recommend you power off, then power on, then do the pairing by pressing both buttons. If you don't, it can sometimes just say FAIL, and you don't know what to do. cycle power always worked.
b) important note: when you want to unpair the watch, UNPAIR at the phone your paired to, and cycle power on the watch. This is the right way to UNPAIR.
c) DON'T hit both buttons as you would if you wanted to PAIR. If you do, it enters a programming mode and says UPDATING and will show to SYNC arrows spinning. You have to wait some time for it to exit this mode, and then your fine. DON'T be impatient and think a power cycle will reset it...it will get stuck then until battery runs down. It will recover after a recharge and be back to normal.
d) I think this is true for alot of these new watch phones...Read more ›

Now I understand why they took the picture from this angel. If you look at the watch from the side, it looks massive and not very attractive to wear. Read morePublished on March 17, 2013 by Ahmed Abogendia
