Who Wants an I’m Watch?

or really, who wants a smart-watch to work with their smartphone?

I’ve been intrigued by this. I was fascinated by the Pebble, but too late to back them and get one. Now I’m waiting to see if they catch up with demand (and take orders) and how it evolves.

I stumbled on the I’m Watch today, and it looks interesting. It’s a neat design, and a good idea, although I think the design is ruined with the prominent “i’m watch” on the band. I’d think Italians would have better design sense and not include that techy element.

It’s got a lot of what I like, though I’m not sure how durable it will be and 5 hours normal use is too low. The Pebble has the better idea with an eink screen.

We’ll see how these evolve, but I can certainly see these devices becoming more commonplace, and perhaps more useful than Google Glass.
