There was quite a bit of hype around inPulse and their Smartwatch earlier this year but it kind of died down as it lost momentum. We have all been waiting for the inPulse Smartwatch to be released so we can test them out and see if they add to the whole BlackBerry experience.
SlashGear spotted an update on inPulse’s Tumblr blog saying that the Smartwatch is now in final assembly and testing. They were originally supposed to ship in February 2010 but we still do not know exactly when they will be released. They are still accepting preorders for $149 at this link if you are interested!
Anybody else excited to try one of these out?
As a reminder features include:
- Messages at a glance
Using your inPulse, a glance down at your wrist is all it takes to discreetly check recently received email and SMS messages. New messages are pushed directly to your inPulse. Instead of pulling out your phone to figure out who keeps texting you, just keep an eye on your inPulse.
- Never miss an important call
Have you ever missed a call because you didn’t hear your phone ringing or couldn’t feel the vibration? inPulse has a built-in vibrating motor which alerts you immediately to incoming calls. Glance down at inPulse to quickly see who is calling.
- Stay connected, always
inPulse lets you stay connected if your hands are full or if your phone is tucked safely away in your bag or purse. But there are millions of other times when you might wish to see you messages on your wrist.
inPulse features an elegant user interface with 1 button interaction. It grabs important information like, caller ID, text messages, email titles, calendar alerts and displays it on a colour OLED screen. The watch body is crafted from high-grade materials and is fitted to a custom wrist band.
- inPulse is customizable
inPulse is probably the most customizable watch in the world. Instead of setting the time on your watch, inPulse grabs the time straight from your BlackBerry smartphone. Other settings, like custom alarms and timers as well as sleep times and message filters, can be easily modified using the large screen and keyboard on your phone.
