I was expecting to see more posts on this model now that it has been released to the US. Can we get some of the more knowledgable on this watch to chime in on their findings?
I like the idea as I work from home, and if I stray too far on my leash from my computer, I like to get some indication that my leash is being tugged on email or a call, and using the watch in conjunction with the iPhone in my pocket SEEMS like a good way to do that. Especially since it vibrates in addition to an alarm - sometimes if I am using a power tool or whatever, the audible notification is not as effective. Ditto for when I am driving, I miss a lot of calls even if I put my phone on vibrate. Plus, the vibrate feature on my iPhone chews up my battery faster and I don't like using it.
One question - my iPhone email only updates when I physically go to the Inbox - it does not automatically notify me of a new message - and does not "pull" the message from the Exchange server. Does the GSHOCK+ application do something special to detect mail arrival real time and pull the messages in without having to go to the Inbox? I don't understand how it works.... my iPhone does alarm for events such as a phone call or a meeting notice reminder (18 min before the meeting), but not for email.
I do wish it worked with SMS or other messages clients - that would be the ultimate as that leash gets tugged a lot too. Anyone aware of any plans to sync with SMS?
