If you are looking for an accessory that not only looks great but also works really well with smartphones, may I take this time to talk about the new I’m Watch by Blue Sky.
These Android-based watches by the Blue Sky group look fantastic and are compatible with the iPhone 4, ALL Android devices, Windows Phone 7 (WP7) and BlackBerry devices, the watches do run a customized version of Android (Android 1.6). Personally they could have had a better operating system but hey ho it is a start.
The lowest price of the I’m Watch is 249 euro and for this price you can choose an array of colours such as the i’m White, Blue, Green, Yellow, Red, Pink, or Black, these are the affordable models. You can opt for the more expensive I’m watches and these are the Titanium for 599â‚¬, Yellow Gold 11.999â‚¬, Pink Gold 11.999â‚¬, White Gold & Diamonds for a whopping 14.999â‚¬, the Black Gold is priced at 11.999â‚¬, and would hate to think what the price of the i’m Special version is (only with luxury materials) and you can get price upon request.
