You could always put a smart MP3 player on a gold watch chain across your weskit.

I love this sort of technology. When Casio brought out their first digital watch with a calculator I had one strait away and found it very useful.

Then came the programmable infrared remote control watch, brilliant I thought. Pre-program all your TV, cable box, dvd player settings and no more need to even pick up remotes. I had previously tried those all in one types of remote but they were always very unreliable.

After many hours setting up the watch for all my systems it became impossible to use. Due to having so few feature buttons you had to remember so many configurations of buttons to change between TV volume or channel or dvd on/start etc. Never used it again after a couple of days.

For the record, I'm very much in the 'I don't see the point but I kind of want one' camp. It's how I feel about tablets (and I have a couple of them...)

More importantly: sorry all posts were seen as spam on this thread for a while. It turns out we had banned the word 'watch', because a watch vendor was spamming the site! Apologies.

Will they have touch screens? If so do you have to use your "pinkie" or will they be the size of touch screen mobile phones so you can use your fingers?

In addition to Quickbeam's imsmart. It is rumoured that Apple is developing one.
