BQ Wireless is about to release a Bluetooth wristband that vibrates when you get a call.
The cost of the BlueQ is much lower than for the Fossil Bluetooth Wristwatch, but it also solves the problem of not hearing your phone ring when in a loud environment like a dance club.
The BlueQ wirstband has two buttons. One is marked “C”. This is to turn BlueQ “ON or “OFF”. The “T” button is the “Transfer” button. The “T” button is for transferring the “Vibration” from the BlueQ wristband to the cell phone so that you can talk to the caller. This function is only needed if your cell phone doesn’t have automatic function of picking up the incoming call once you answer your cell phone.
The BlueQ needs recharging every 30 hours. Recharging takes 30 - 40 min.
The Wristbands are skin-able with your own design. BQ Wireless has an online tool that helps you design a skin.
The BlueQ wristband will sell for $39.95 and ship late July 2007.
