Bluetooth Watch

I thought this might be a little useful. Some of us while riding or whatever have our phone tucked away somewhere. Well get Dick Tracy and see who's calling you without having to dig for the phone.

Oh and I know there are Bluetooth earpieces that do this but you won't have to dig for that either! lol

Opinions?

That watch and this earpiece:

You'll forget you're wearing it. Perfectly balanced and incorporates both over and in the ear stability. (best of both worlds).

For me I don't wear the gladiator gloves so just a little push and I can see my watch under my sleeve. I mean it's not too easy but it's just something.
I mean I just need to see who it is and if it merits me pulling over, taking off my helmet and digging out the phone.

Well sure but the cell phone itself might be able to do that. I guess it's more so just kool to just glance down at a watch that's always on ya than dig for a phone or look at an earpiece. I still want the Bluetooth helmet earpiece. With the watch you don't even have to take off the helmet.

Note: There was some debate though about talking on a phone and riding.

Probably a little more than your looking for, I just thought this would be perfect to come on cars:

I think it is cool. I am on call for work, and will never have my cell phone in my pocket again. I fell this summer, and when my leg hit the pavement, I landed right on my phone. That hurt like hell. I think the watch is a little pricey for $250 though. My wife thinks is is a dork toy made by dorks for dorks. Perfect for me

I dont know about you guys, but when Im on my bike, I could care less who's calling. I just call everyone back when I stop for a break. Also, very annoying, is my phone has an MP3 Player, and when riding/listening, and someone calls, it interrupts my music.
