In August 2011, I introduced to you the i'm watch, a hip smart phone for your wrist made in Italy. Since that time, the design and technology have been updated.

It now sports a new interface making it better looking than before and updated technology that works with Android-based phones and iPhones.
The world’s first real smartwatch. It connects via Bluetooth and brings you calls, SMS, e-mails, notifications and any app directly to your wrist. Now you can leave your phone in your pocket, in your purse or on the desk,and have all the messages, phone calls and social network notifications directly on your wrist.
With i’m Watch you can do things that with a smartphone alone you wouldn’t be able to accomplish. Because, with an i’m Watch on your wrist, your hands are free! When needed, just activate the touchscreen display to access the numerous functions available.
Connect to your smartphone through a Bluetooth™ connection and control emails and sms, check Facebook and Twitter activities, see the weather forecast, upcoming appointments, new pictures and applications.
