Neptune Pine is a 2.4-inch standalone Android-based wristwatch

The Neptune Pine, as it is called, is a stand-alone device that you can plug your micro-SIM card in. Coming with a 2.4-inch screen that stretches the limits of wristwatch convenience, you get a modified version of Android called Leaf OS. In it are basic apps like clock, phone, camera, mail, maps, browser and so on. You also get apps like a heart rate monitor.
The gadget can connect with others using Bluetooth 4.0 and it sports an 800mAh battery. At least that’s the plan. It’s not yet real, and the developers will have a hard time actually bringing this to market.
But with others like the Pebble smartwatch being extremely popular with customers, and with the big names in the industry like Apple obviously exploring the possibilities of a smartwatch, it is an interesting prospect.

Had a Cowon D2 player and it came with a small stylus. Of course that was a worse screen using resistive instead of capacitive. Probably would be better for watch/ Heart rate monitors than what's currently on the market for avid runners and the like.

i think for what it is having a messaging app is ridiculous i dont mind having to read received mail on something like this, but typing thats a whole other story personally i think if the message is important enough u can pull your smartphone from your pocket and send a text or email etc.....
