Most PDAs are easier to forget, loose, or break than this unit appears to be. That is why I was willing to pay for a Fossil FX2008 Wrist PDA. Sure, I could buy a Palm OS PDA with more and newer features. What good would it do if I forget it at home or broke it in my pocket?

If you do not like the stylus in the watch band, you can buy a combination pen/stylus. That is what I did and it works for me. Then you still have the stylus in the band for emergency.

Someone inventive could put the body in a hard case and turn it into a pocket watch/PDA. I know of no other Palm OS PDA that is as small in diameter.

I am never without my watch, so now I am never without a PDA.

this watch is by all means cool, but it would be better if it weighed about 3 oz. less and had a built in stopwatch

i love how all the apps for previious palms work on it and people are instantly impressed by its features.

the worst things are

size

weight

B&W screen

I tried one of these watches with Mac OS 10.4.2. The version of Palm OS supplied would not install because of a permissions issue. Even if it would have the watch is far to heavy wih its metal case. Put it in a plastic case to save weight and improve on the battery life and maybe I'll buy one and keep it.

Another review asked why this one is more expensive than the other one. I THINK it may be because this one ships from Amazon, and the other from TigerDirect. Other than that, I think functionality is the same, although I believe Fossil offers several different bands.
