Most Bt watches are in the $200 and up range, I would guess this watch would be in the same area.

A week ago we dropped photos and some preliminary specs here on the "BlackBerry Watch" that has been speculated about in the blogosphere since May. And today, the inPulse smartwatch for BlackBerry gets official. As we reported previously, the inPulse smartwatch is not a BlackBerry Smartphone on your wrist, nor is it manufactured by Research in Motion (nor is RIM developing an accessory like this on their own - this is the "BB watch"). Rather, the inPulse smartwatch is manufactured by Allerta, a new Waterloo-based start-up focused on intelligent smartphone accessories, and works as a companion to your BlackBerry Smartphone to notify you of incoming BlackBerry messages/events.
inPulse smartwatch for BlackBerry Tech Specs & Key Features
1.3" full colour organic light-emitting-diode (OLED) display
150 mAh lithium-ion polymer battery
Glass lens and full metal body
22mm interchangeable wrist band
Micro-USB port (for charging)
Over-the-air firmware updates
Dimensions: 51mm height x 38mm width x 12mm depth
Jumping over to the inPulse FAQ page reveals other key stats. Battery life is slated at ~ 4 days depending on use and can be recharged in about 30 minutes via standard microUSB cable. To use the inPulse wristwatch you must also install an app onto your BlackBerry that runs in the background. Cool feature - you can set the inPulse (clock, timers, multiple alarms) right from your BlackBerry. It can receive firmware updates wirelessly, and will work on all BlackBerry Smartphones running OS 4.3 and up.
As for price, the inPulse smartwatch rings in at pretty reasonable $149 USD. It's available for pre-order now (not taking payment yet but you can get on the waiting list), with the first consumer shipments scheduled for February 2010. For more info, you can check out the press release below, visit getinpulse.com for more product info and to pre-order, and check out the inpulse blog at inpulse.tumblr.com to stay on top of developments.
I'm really surprised it only $150. Thats not a bad price at all.
I'm suprised as well, $150 is a decent price.
Yeah I was happy to see this will only be 150ish dollars. I will almost definitely be getting one! Great concept and looks pretty sleek! Dimensions are 2 inches tall 1.5 inches wide and .47 inches deep. It sounds like it MAY be a little bulky but I suppose I would have to see it on my wrist as I am used to wearing quite a big watch already so we will see!
