A wristwatch first and a smart device second, the $129 COOKOO reminds us of a swatch, with its vibrantly colored silicon bands, luminous hands and hour markings. To keep you up to date, the device uses an Android or iPad app along with low-power Bluetooth to find out when you have incoming calls, upcoming appointments or new Facebook messages.
However, there's no digital display on the COOKOO to show the text from your messages. Instead the face has a set of lights built in that light up when you get an alert, much the way gas and oil lights appear on your car's dashboard. By keeping things simple, the COOKOO not only looks great, but lasts 9 or 10 months using a normal watch battery.
