Let your watch do the thinking

jitwatch.jpg

Watches already do a lot more than tell the time, but how about one that takes the current time and situates it within the context of whatever else you've got going on that day? T he Just In Time Watch, designed by German designer Martin Frey, is designed to do just that. At a glance, you'd know not only what time it is now, but exactly how much time you have till your next appointment and how long it's going to take you to get there.

Of course, the watch doesn't do all this by itself. It needs to be able to tap into a Personal Area Network, e.g., of a cell phone or a laptop, so that it can check the current time against your calendar appointments for the day. It also has to identify your location (via GPS, GSM-tracking or other techniques) and estimate the route to your next appointment, based on whatever web-based navigation, transport and traffic information is available.

The watch is still in the developmental stage, but I hope Frey gets it on the market eventually. Stylish and (reasonably) intelligent, it's the very thing that'd help me to tell the time better.

Just a heads-up -- for some time now, your photos have taken forever to come up in Bloglines, and now they aren't coming up at all.

This is the height of designer intelligence. I am sure this watch will prove to be of so much convenience that one doesn't have to blame his poor memory any more.
Like me, am sure many others are also waiting for the watch to enter the market.
