SMS Technology Australia might only be hours ahead of me on the globe, but they’re years ahead of my current watch. Take a look at their M500 product and tell me what you think it is when I describe these specs: quad-band GSM, 1.5-inch OLED touchscreen, MP3 and MP4 support, 200 minutes of talk-time, 80 hours of standby, USB and Bluetooth support.

You’re thinking phone, right? They’re thinking you want a watch with those capabilities because that’s what the M500 is and it just went through the FCC. I have the believe that using the touchscreen, even with the included stylus, would be a chore for any large messages, but I’m impressed nonetheless. No word on price as the "Buy it now" link shows a page under maintenance. I’m probably lucky it did although the company indicates some previous Internet orders are shipping at the end of this month.

    Um, I’m pretty sure that would be “quad GSM”…

  3. Didn’t anyone notice the main screen shot on the watch is etremely similar to the iPhone image on apple’s site http://www.apple.com/iphone/ ?

    If this is not a haox, the images may not be real.

  4. Ehrich, the photo provided from the site is conceptual; click the FCC link and view the “External Photos” for a look at the tested product. It’s a real device.
