EinerArmbanduhr that gets transmitted information from the phone via Bluetooth and displays, is not a new idea – so far the gadget but not really established itself. Usually the chunky format of wrist watches, that is not really comparable to a normal wrist watches is problematic. Also, the battery life is also very limited. Whether BlackBerry with its new smartphone Bracelet Watch “ inPulse ” can eradicate these criticisms, find with us.

So you can learn about eingeganene news or see who’s calling on your Smartphone. Then the question whether it is worth it to get the phone out of his pocket is superfluous fast ….
Gimmick without benefit of?

The body is flat and optically unobtrusive – the difference to a normal wristwatch is not really big, until on the display.
Also, BlackBerry relies on the use of an OLED display, so that also a good battery life can be expected. Whether the inPulse then the typical problems of readability in sunlight, must prove with a practice test. Anyway, provided a good basis for a long breath that inPulse here Watch.

Availability and price
So far, still no release date is known, it is expected that the BlackBerry appears wristwatch in Germany but. Wristwatches with phone functions are represented previously on the Asian market and less common in Germany (for example LG GD910).
