Apple-friendly iOS Meta Watch nears launch

Are you the kind of person that just can't stop checking your phone? Well, the Meta Watch could be your new best friend.

It's not quite a mobile phone on your wrist. That concept never really took off. This one is a companion to your iPhone, firing out the essential information to your wrist. Not just the iPhone either. As an iOS-friendly device, you can also hook up your iPad too, presumably.

Once you do – and once you've downloaded the relevant app – you can check your wrist for phone call details, messaging and so on. That's likely to be the tip of the iceberg though, as the company behind the watch (which is run by former Nokia and Fossil executives), have also offered up the API to developers. So expect much more interaction in the future.

The connection between watch and phone is via Bluetooth 4.0 technology, with the details displayed on a 96x96-pixel LCD display. The watch also features six fully programmable buttons, a three-axis accelerometer, a vibrating motor and an ambient light sensor. So a decent piece of kit then.

The watch is expected to ship this month, with the US first to get it for $199. A bit rich for a digital watch, but if you love your notifications, it might be a price worth paying.
