We reported about the ICW001 color Screen Wrist Watch with IrDA last week. I4U Readers are of course early adopters and Chester Fung sent us his first impression of the ICW001 Smart Watch. He got the Smart Watch from Hong Kong Online store Brando.
"Ok... Here's the review after first use: It took me a while to get used to, for uploading stuff (pictures/melodies) to the watch and set time/date. The screen could have been a slightly bit bigger in order to see the uploaded pictures well, but, please, not as big as MSN direct watches (I got a Dick Tracy one). I just stretched and fit my pictures into one tiny frame so that the whole picture can be seen on my watch (50*50 pictures recommended, they are seen better). Oh yeah, you gotta understand the European/Asian format of date: dd/mm/yy instead of the American format (mm/dd/yy); I was wondering why the calendar showed December 3 as today's (yesterday's) date. I agree with some of the tech sites that the MSN Direct watch should have been in color and should have let us to upload stuff.
Well there you go, my first-use short review."
The ICW001 wrist watch has a 256 color display with 72x64pixels and 128kb storage. With the built-in IrDA function, the ICW records (including Phonebook, Scheduler) are exchangeable with your mobile phone, PDA or PC.
It also allows users to compose a melody on a PC and upload it to the watch. Normal Watch functions include a 30 city world clock.
