In case your iPhone, iPad and iMac were not enough, you can now own the first smart watch. Just looking at this thing makes me feel like Batman with all his fantastic gadgets.
The watch, developed by Blue Sky s.r.l in Milan, is compatible with iOs devices and Android-based cell phones. What do you think Apple would call a watch if they made one? The developers of this piece decided to call it I’m Watch. Probably not what Apple would go with but maybe it’ll work for them
The watch itself isn’t all that fantastic looking, I’ve seen better looking watches in my day. It comes in two different versions: I’m Color and I’m Jewel. I’m color is the cheap man’s smart watch while I’m Jewel is for the true luxury fanatics. I’m color comes in white, blue green, yellow, red, pink and blank. I’m Jewel comes in either yellow gold, pink gold, white gold & diamonds, titanium, black gold or something Blue Sky calls Special.
So what can you do with the world’s first smart watch? The real question is what can’t you do. Of course, there’s the obvious time telling function but why would you buy a watch just for that? This watch lets you check the weather, text message, receive emails, receive and make phone calls, speakerphone, download music, view photos, view stock market data and download apps. It sounds like I can now wear my iPhone right on my wrist. There goes all my reasons for not being able to answer my phone.
Now, I have to say this makes me a little worried. Primarily because I was just watching 1,000 ways to die yesterday and some ladies phone exploded in her face and she died. I just don’t know how I’d feel keeping a bomb like that strapped to my wrist 24/7.
I like the concept, not so taken with the design but I’m sure there will be improvements in the future. The iWatch, I’m sorry, I’m Watch, is only available for pre-order right now. The current price for the color collection is $349 and the jewel collection ranges from $840 – $16,833. According to their website, the current prices are only good for another week. They should start shipping around October.
What do you think, is it something you’d like to own?
