A long time ago when I was first creating Trend Planet I was looking for the latest gadget and I got wind of a new product coming out that allowed you to receive txt messages and emails on your arm in the form of a watch. Skeptical I bought one, then two, then three! What was so amazing about this watch was not only did it come with its own email address that would receive messages instantly but it also came with its own toll free number and notification on the watch that you had a new voicemail to check. All for the low cost of around $99 a year for the first year. I loved this “smart watch” and used it daily and most times never took it off as it was water proof and worked just fine through a shower. Whats amazing to me, is this was around 2003 when the Timex Internet Messenger was popular and it did things, that to me I find oddly aren’t even currently features of any watch I have seen lately unless you count upcoming mammoth bluetooth related watches like the Pebble Watch. If timex ever reads this and I hope they do, I wish they could bring back the Internet Messenger in a color display, because 10 years ago they invented the future and it was so easy to use, so functional and it was exactly what we want in 2014.
