    BlackBerry Watch makes an appearance!


    For those James Bond fans out there (even you closet types) it appears that RIM is bringing salvations! The BlackBerry "smart-watch"! According to our source, these are renderings of the actual device, not a teenager with mad Photoshop skills. Some of the key features are:

    • Designed by RIM from the ground up
    • The device features an OLED screen optimized to clearly display text
    • Designed to show notifications and message previews
    • Possibly branded the "inPulse" smartwatch


    Blackberry isn't trying to replace your precious device. It appears they are simply trying to add more options. If your smartphone is hidden in your purse or pouch, the smartwatch is only a wrist away.

    Wonder what the cost would be... I dont have a watch, but I would be willing to get this if it was a fair price. Wonder how far it will go. If it had a today feature and a few other things (such as having the time be the only thing on it, like when charging your berry) it could very very useful. Hopefully it is really customizable as well.

    A fair price would allow a larger range of client tel, but considering that the larger side of blackberry owners can afford forty dollar apps, I doubt the watch will fall below 100. It's no where as sexy as the Prada Bluetooth watch..

    If it works, I am in for sure! The first thing that popped to my mind is being able to see who is calling in on my second line without having to pull the phone away from my ear and check it!

    Plus, if it shows bbm messages, wow....even a Today theme can't do that!

    sidenote:

    Go and check the thread at CB. Off topic and pointless is the norm over there!

    Gotta love BBOS!

    Why would there be a monthly charge, it is just a watch. There isn't a monthly charge to use BT headsets.

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

    The Prada watch does look very slick. I don't think I could give up my Tokyoflash watches for a BT watch. If they made a BT watch I think I might add it to the collection.

    I just saw this on CB



    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
    Bluetooth® v2.0+EDR
    150 mAh lithium-ion polymer battery
    Glass lens and full metal body
    22mm interchangeable wrist band
    Vibrating motor
    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.

    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!

    Wifi

    They should have added a Wifi receiver to the watch so by Bluetooth non-Wifi BBs (Tour 1) could connect to Wifi. RIM blew it. That would have been a rockin' watch.

    I fail to understand your logic. What would the benefit of wifi have been? Wifi doesn't seem like a logical choice for the type of product.
