“i’m Watch” (yes that is its name) is the kind of Christmas gift that should be in everyones basket. Well I wish it was in mine. Your smartphone in a watch? Yes please.

i’m Watch connects to your smartphone through Bluetooth and delivers calls, text messages, emails, notifications, music, weather forecasts, pictures and any other app you desire. Working on Android OS, it will give you access to the internet by piggybacking on your smartphone’s internet connection. Even if your smartphone does not have the capability to wirelessly connect to the watch, there is an app available for download that will enable the two devices to pair.

Remembering that this is actually a watch, so the specs are pretty impressive all things considering:

  • Flash Drive: 4GB
  • RAM: 128MB
  • 1.54” (diagonal) colour TFT display
  • 240×240 pixel resolution
  • 220 ppi (pixel per inch)
  • Built-in rechargeable Li-Po 450 mAh battery
  • Charging via USB to computer system or via power adapter
  • Standby time without Bluetooth connection: up to 48 hours
  • Standby time with Bluetooth connection: up to 24 hours
  • Talk time with speakerphone: up to 3 hours
  • Time for other uses: up to 5 hours
