Gauntlet Watchphone makes watch phones cool again
by Mark R
Yeah, this isn’t the first time that Coolest Gadgets has reported on watch phones such as the LG G910 and the Kempler and Strauss WPhonewatch.
I suppose that this would be the time to talk about how most watch phones don’t take into account that Dick Tracy isn’t cool anymore and the idea of having a phone on our wrist just doesn’t appeal to us like it did back then. I mean, most people have cell phones! Hello?
Still, you have got to give the Gauntlet Watchphone credit for trying to make the watch phone relevant in today’s mobile society. You will notice that the watch has a lot of icons on its touchscreen face, just like everyone’s favorite smartphone from Apple!
The icons include a music player, a basic email reader, plus much more. I can imagine that the user will be able to download apps. It can also connect to a headset via Bluetooth.
So, hey, is a watch phone fad in our future? After all, I stopped wearing a watch after I got a cellular phone. Maybe I would ditch my cellular phone after getting a watch phone.
Hey, it could happen. You never know what is going to catch on. I can just see an era when people will be saying: “You mean you still use a cell phone? We have watchphones. Hello?”
