To Do List, Memo Pad, Calculator, and even the time.Support for most Palm OS 4.1 compatible applications.Customizable watch faces.Touch screen input.Miniature stylus concealed in the watch's band. Slick!Built-in page up, page down, and back buttons.Three-direction rocker switch (aka jog dial). Well done, Fossil.USB inte***ce.Infrared data transfer.Internal rechargeable battery and an AC power adapter to rechargeit.4-5 days of battery life. Sounds fairly comparable to an MSN Direct watch.Wrist PDA SDK for the software developers among you (a free download from Fossil'ssite).So hopefully the wait is finally almost over. As soon as I can get my hands onone, you can be sure I'll post a detailed review.

Hopefully Fossil is serious this time about their new Wrist PDA: a full Palm OS(4.1) built right into a watch. Actually, I'm sure they were quiteserious the first time they announced the Wrist PDA and took "Bestof COMDEX"in the mobile devices category nearly two years,though it seems circumstances conspired against Fossil, and the watch disappearedfrom their site as suddenly as it had appeared. I believe Amazon had even startedtaking pre-orders, though presumably, everyone's money was safely returned,and I'm sure there were no hard feelings. Don't worry, Fossil -- I'm not writing this to accuse you of false promises andvaporware. On the contrary. I'm writing this to congratulate you ongetting the project back on track. I believe it's in everyone's best interest thatbleeding edge devices like the Wrist PDA not be released until they are ready,and I also believe this product is no less impressive and relevant now than itwas when it was originally announced. In other words, I'm still dying to have one. Features and specs:Palm OS 4.1 (English).Motorola Dragonball VZ 33MHz. Not much by today's PDA standards, but prettydarn impressive for a watch.2MB of RAM. The first PDA I ever owned was a special "upgraded" version with4MB. Again, very impressive for a watch.16 level grayscale with backlight; 160x160 pixels.Address Book, Date Book,.
