About a month ago I ordered MSN Direct watch, and I finally got it today. I have not had a chance to play around with it too much yet, but I need to say it is quite cool. It gives you the weather, news highlights, stock quotes, meeting notifications and people can use MSN instant messenger to contact you. The web site for the watch says that sports scores will soon be available. I wish there was a way for you to pump custom data down to your self; I know MSN messenger has an SDK, I will need to look into if I could send messages to myself.

 

The only problem I have found so far is that the wrist band is a little uncomfortable. I have never worn a watch before, and suddenly having something strapped to my wrist does not feel right. The band is a little tight, but I don’t have needle-nose pliers here at work to adjust it. Once I fix that I think it will work out fine.

 

I will post here later with any good / bad experiences I have with it.
