The Wrist Watch Phone – Simplifying Your Mobile Life

You could be excused for thinking a watch with in-built phone was something that only existed in the fictional world of James Bond, but watch phones are real and they can be enjoyed by everyone. Sure one of these devices might take some getting used to at first and you might need to get used to the odd sideways glance when you draw your wristwatch to your mouth and start talking, but the benefit of not having to fumble around when your cell phone starts ringing can not be disputed.

The first cell phone wrist watch was the Samsung SPH-WP10, which was released in the year 1999, ironically close to the turn of the century given that the old science fiction stories envisaged us all driving around in floating cars and owning a mobile watch phone. While things didn’t quite turn out the way the old science fiction authors expected, the watch cell phone is at least available and can be appreciated by everyone not shy to go against the general trend of owning a seperate cell phone.
