inPulse BlackBerry Accessory Could Be The Dick Tracy Watch We’ve Always Wanted

blackberry-watch-real-1

By Chris Scott Barr

Ever since Dick Tracy, people have been wanting phones on their wrist. We’ve seen various, albeit poor implementations of this very thing, but nothing that feels right. One of the biggest hurdles in crafting the perfect wrist-mounted phone is that it’s tough to cram everything you need in a tiny watch. So what if you had your regular phone, and the watch merely complemented it, and gave you easy access to core functions? That seems to be the idea behind this inPulse.

The inPulse is said to be a Bluetooth accessory for your BlackBerry. It doesn’t appear to give you control of your BlackBerry per se, but it does do something rather useful. When a new message (or perhaps phone call?) comes in, it will appear on the screen of your watch. This lets you check the message with just a quick glance to your wrist. If it’s nothing important, you can go about your business. Otherwise, you’ll pull out your phone and take the necessary actions. Honestly, if this thing could let you make phone calls, I’d say it’s the perfect accessory.

    Forgot the watch-phone, I want the jet-pack and flying cars we were all promised…

    Frankly I just can't see these watch phones working if you need multiple pieces. The whole idea is to do away with the handset.

    Yes, I can be serious.

    I already use my phone as a watch, so this seems redundant to me.

    I think it's pretty cool, It looks a little bulky though. I'm sure it would be much more popular if they got it working for the iPhone and such.

    they already have bluetooth watches for this type of thing. i think they were at thinkgeek.

    So there's already the caller-id watches from dx. Unless you're getting messages you're not going to respond to, what's the point of reading them off from your giagantic watch instead of right off your blackberry?

    Definitely interested!! I don't mind the look, as long as it stays simple and clean. I need more specs though, so keep updating as they come out! It would be especially handy if it could silence my phone at the touch of a button instead of having to yank the thing out and hit the sidekeys.

    My guess is that this wont reduce anything. you cant reply on it or answer it so it really is just reducing the secound it takes to check you phone for the message or the call. Waste of money. And Dick Tracy kicked ass

    Sony ericsson has 5 or more watches like these some are better because you can control remotely the music from your phone and they have lots of different features.
