    Anyone know of any bluetooth watch that is compatible with the iPhone 4?

    I can't bring myself to buying another watch until it has everything I wish a watch had:
    * Bluetooth connection with my iPhone to show caller-id
    * Ability to decline the call
    * Show incoming text message
    * Vibrate mode
    This is something i have been trying to find since the first iPhone....As popular as the iPhones been i figured someone would try to make some money off this this idea, there is a market for this technology

    This product seems kind of odd to me in terms of usability and practicality. For one, bluetooth pretty much needs a clear path to the device and can sometimes be interrupted by the body itself as in the interference that often happens when you're listening to your bluetooth headset when your phone is deep in your back pockets. Now, unless the signal is far stronger than regular bluetooth headsets, I can't see this product taking off as a solid consumer need. I haven't worn a watch in over a decade and I feel no need to change now.

    I just use my phone to find out what time it is and I'm sure many other people do, too. I just can't see the need for two devices - a phone to be able to sync the bluetooth to, and the bluetooth watch itself. If you can tell me any other reason or need for it's usage then maybe I'll change my mind. :D

    Well this is not for everyone but for the one's thats interested in something like this it makes perfect since
    if you are in a businesss meeting you can interact with your iPhone without interrupting the meeting and if i'm driving i can see who is texting me or calling with out reaching into my pocket while driving and also it just have a cool factor that i like and there's many more use that will make life convenient, and at the end of the day that what everyone wants convenience

    Oh okay... I could see pulling the slick move of checking the watch for text messages or calls since looking at your phone during meetings is "frowned upon". (I hate meetings!) Yeah, I can see the viability of it, especially if you can actually read your text messages from it as I understand some of those bluetooth watches are able to do.

    But are there any reviews on those watches from a user persepctive as regards bodily interference, especially when their in a pocket?

    nope still doesn't work

    I have a Sony Ericsson ladies' MBW-200 that worked fab on my windows 6.5 phone. It doesn't work at all with the iPhone 4, even with the 4.1 upd. Too bad I really liked it. Now I just use it as a plain watch *yawn*

    Check through a couple of pages. I see several that match what you are looking for. I even saw one with a vibrate feature.

    Watcher and The Watcher, thank you for having a conversation like this. I just today realized that you were two different people.

    Cool idea though, I'd probably be interested in one myself. Let me know if you find something!
