Seiko Bluetooth Watch Prototype

There are times when your cellphone is either buried deep in your man-purse, or perhaps wedged in your Emo-jeans pocket, and getting it out to check who’s calling, or reading an SMS is just a pain in the butt. To end your suffering, Seiko Instruments, in Japan, has unveiled a working prototype of a Bluetooth watch.

It will connect to your cellphone and display information such as battery status, network intensity, caller ID, and even display your SMSes. When you get a call, you’ll be able to set the watch to either ring, or vibrate, though there is no headset functionality just yet. Which means that if it’s your significant other calling, you’re still going to have to scramble to get to the phone.

If I read the iffy Babelfish translation right, Seiko plans to commercialize this sometime in 2007.
