I’m not sure what to say about this thing. It’s either ingenious or really stupid. Would I wear it? No I wouldn’t, but I have rather bland tastes, jeans and a t-shirt is about the extent of things for my wardrobe. Seriously though check it out and let me know if it’s something you might wear and actually use?
Continuing its 163-year history of offering the Best, the Only and the Unexpected, Hammacher Schlemmer introduces The Caller ID Photo Watch, a timepiece that displays a picture of the person who is calling a paired mobile phone.
The watch’s 1 1/2″ color LCD panel displays any photo that has been assigned to an incoming phone number, allowing you to quickly determine the identity of a caller.
Contact information is transmitted from a cell phone to the watch via Bluetooth, eliminating the need to wear cords, and up to 120 photos can be downloaded to the watch from a computer.
The watch can also display traditional incoming call information and when not providing caller IDs, the watch displays the current time.
The watch also provides an alert when it passes beyond the phone’s range (about 30′), making you aware when the cell phone has been left behind. The included USB cable charges the watch’s battery and transfers the photos.
