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.

About the Geek Mind
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
