Video: Japan's ABIT Presents The "Wristwatch Phone"

It’s certainly not the first combination of a watch and phone out there, but the model Japanese electronics company ABIT recently showcased in Tokyo is pretty cool nonetheless. Function-wise, the so-called Wristwatch Phone is at concept stage, but it’s actually a standalone PHS phone – and it’s working.

The device has a touchscreen and lets you make phone calls by selecting contacts stored in the cloud. Incoming calls can be answered by the push of a button.

The watch also lets you use email and even view tweets in the form of a mini time line that’s scrolling down the screen. ABIT also squeezed Bluetooth, a USB port, smartphone connectivity, and an acceleration sensor into the device.
