Seiko Shows Cellphone-Friendly Bluetooth Watch


Seiko Japan revealed an improbably big watch prototype that hooks up with your cellphone via Bluetooth. The huge display shows you that little envelope indicating that you ve received a new message, and then can also reveal who sent it and the message subject. Continuously communicating with your cellphone, the device can either make a noise or vibrate your wrist when a call comes in. Seiko says it will start shipping a watch like this "by 2007" but didn't reveal how much it would cost.

If you ask us, if you're going to wear a watch that big, you might as well just strap a full-sized HDTV to your arm.
