Many many years ago (2001) IBM were working on a Linux watch with Bluetooth (if memory serves). I wonder if anything like it is available now?

Specifically, I'd want a watch that tells time and runs Linux (or BSD or some such system) with some sort of wireless connectivity (WLAN or Bluetooth) which I can SSH into to set alarms and such.

Not useful, perhaps, but very geeky!

Anyone heard of such a product?

(It could also double as an SD card equivalent.)

Link to the IBM project: research.ibm.com/WearableComputing/linuxwatch/linuxwatch.html. Can't say I've heard of any such device, or think that it would sell in this age. – nagul Aug 20 '09 at 15:40

Try MetaWatch.com, GetInPulse.com, imWatch.com and WIMM.com. They all do what you want.

Not exactly what you were looking for, but there are a few watches here which can double up as memory sticks: http://www.thinkgeek.com/brain/whereisit.cgi?t=watch&x=0&y=0

It's not what I wanted, but the things are funny. – Andrew J. Brehm Aug 25 '09 at 14:23

It doesn't look like IBM ever had any competition for that market.
