OK, so I bought a watchphone and I can now tell you that the idea of owning a watchphone is a lot more exciting than actually owning a watchphone. At least this kind of lesson can be learned relatively cheaply. There are plenty of other ideas where the concept is a lot more exciting than reality - like getting a dog, getting married or having children, all of which are a lot more permanent and expensive.
I mention in the video that speaking into your wrist makes you look like a fool, I'm still relatively OK with this, but there is another big insurmountable and fundamental flaw in the concept of a wrist phone, let me explain….
Most people nowadays have a mobile phone that does more than take calls. At the minimum most people can receive Email on their phone, but many more have now come to rely on a smartphone containing a hand picked suite of apps. Now there is no way that a device that can fit on a wrist could compete for features & usability with a proper smartphone. For example, attempting to read a full webpage on a device with a 1.8" screen will never be a pleasant experience.
Most people also now have a mobile phone number that has been ported from phone to phone and been with them a few years, it has in effect become their personal identification number. Now that number can only be on one sim, in one phone at at time. I choose to keep this number, the one that all my contacts know, in my most capable device - my iPhone. The watch therefore has to make-do with a pay as you go sim - the number of which only I know.
If I were to be asked for my telephone number , the number that I'd give out would be the one I've been using for years, not my secondary number, that is in the watchphone - that I may or may not be wearing on the day.
So that's the fundamental problem, who is going to call my watchphone? Answer; nobody (well except for me when I was shooting this video). Perhaps I have this wrong and lots of people use multiple mobile phone numbers - however I don't, so the watchphone ends up being pretty much useless in the end, but most of you probably already figured this out without actually having to go and buy one - so well done you.
Anyway, wrists-on review below.
