As is my way, I have destroyed my current watch - dropping it face first on to the floor of a squash court.
When thinking about what I wanted from a watch, I realised that all the possible extra functions - timer, compass, etc, are now completely un-needed, as they are supplied by my phone.
And that made me think that what would be useful was a connection with my phone, since I regularly fail to notice it ringing. Doesn't need to be all singing and dancing - but if the watch vibrates on my wrist when the phone rings, that'd be handy.
Also, because of my aforementioned ability to destroy watches, waterproof, tough, and cheap would be nice qualities.
So what's out there that's not naff? Any personal experience? (Needs to be iPhone compatible.
Supplemental question - if a bluetooth watch is paired with my phone, and I get in the car and press the pair button on the Nokia handsfree in there, will it override the watch? Or will wearing the watch render the car bluetooth useless?
