Spice Mobiles today, have launched an interesting gadget the Spice Pulse which is a standalone watch with dual SIM support. It is Java based, can make direct calls and can connect with almost all Android phones.
The Spice Smart Pulse MRP is Rs. 4,999 but will be available for as low as Rs. 3,999. It comes with dual SIM slots and as already mentioned this Smartwatch is Java based. Though this Smartwatch can be used like a phone you can connect it with your smartphone.
If you are using the SIM on this watch why would you use a smartphone without the SIM. And if you are using this watch without the SIM then it makes no sense at all. Apart from that it will make sense if you have multiple phones such that you can use 2 or 1 SIM on the watch and another on your smartphone. I am not sure if the watch can be used to make a call via the smartphone.
Smart Pulse sports a 1.5 inch full touch screen with 240 x 320 pixels resolution. This watch supports 2G (GPRS/EDGE) and you can use that to surf the net (WAP) on the watch. The internal memory (size unknown) can store up to 300 contacts. Micro SD card of up to 8GB is supported.
The Pulse comes with a 420 mAh battery and supports Bluetooth. I don’t think there is built-in speaker or mic and you will need to use a Bluetooth device connected with the watch for making / receiving calls. It can connect with android phones and can access contact list / messages. It can also be used to remotely control the smartphone camera.
This Smartwatch will be available on Homeshop 18 on 11th of this month for Rs. 3,999 (with free Bluetooth device).
