I'm Watch with limited Android functionality is coming to a wrist near you in November

I'm Watch with limited Android functionality is coming to a wrist near you in November
Needless to say, there’s nothing like cool tech that oozes out plenty of novel features to capture just about anyone’s attention from afar, but there’s one that’s particularly more captivating since it fits conveniently on your wrist.

Actually, an Italian company called Blue Sky is aiming to perk up the attention of smartphone users with their Android-based “I’m Watch.” As you can probably infer from its name, it’s a cool looking watch that offers some limited Android functionality – yet, it doesn’t seem or sound as gimmicky as others in the past. Naturally, some people are going to be interested in a little toy like this one, especially when it’s starting price point is at 249 euros ($350), but you’re not going to treat it like one if you happen to pick up higher models that pack luxuries such as jewels, diamonds, and other faces.

In terms of functionality, it features a 1.54” touchscreen that allows for some limited tasks like sending text messages, accessing your email, and viewing photos. Also, its built-in 3.5mm headset jack will allow you to connect headphones and jam out to some tunes. And with Bluetooth on board, it allows just about any smartphone, even the iPhone, to connect to it – so that you can inconspicuously screen phone calls.

But seeing that it’s powered by a Freescale IMX233 processor with 64MB of memory, in addition to the 4GB of flash storage for content, it’s not going to be replacing any dedicated gadget any time soon. Nonetheless, it’s one accessory that we’re sure some people will appreciate. So if you’re in interested in one, you can place a pre-order now, but don’t expect to arrive soon seeing that Blue Sky intends to ship them out starting in November.

Well if it really did have 64GB of memory, that would be amazing. But sadly, its a typo and the watch actually has only 64MB of memory.

Are you freaking serious? An Android powered watch? Has Google seriously run out of ideas? What's next, an Android powered calculator? or an Android powered TV? Oh wait, that one was a flop.

I'm a little curious Miz, is this you're only goal. Go onto any post and bash android. I mean come on you don't even complain about a certain product, or give constructive criticism to an idea. Just straight degrade anything android and praise all that is apple. Either you are the most fake person ever just trying to get a rise out of some fans of android. Or you're just an ignorant person unwilling to open their mind to anything that doesn't have an "i" in front of it.

The Miz is just a troll. He is bored out of his mind so he bashes android any chance he gets. He clearly is too ignorant to actually read any articles, he just skims through them and decides to bash it. I doubt he even has an iphone but him and the rest of the isheep are still living in 2007 when the iphone was "cool".

I've been looking for a watch that would connect to my phone and allow me to navigate through the media player. Sounds like it could be possible with this. If anyone knows of a device like this already please let me know.
