The MSN Direct (Wrist.NET) watch is the best PDA-Watch I've seen so far.  As a Palm fan, I was stoked about the Palm PDA Watch, but it was WAY too big, and tried to be too much.  I don't want to use a freakin' stylus on my watch.  At the same time, I have been one of the 'bat-belt' people with a cell-phone, pager, PDA, digital camera and laptop (not to mention a Glucose Meter and Insulin Pump).  I really don't need another battery to charge! 

I don't expect a watch to replace my current ONE device - a Blackberry Phone (that handles email, calendar, web and cell phone on a single device) - but I would like something to provide me with a little more information than just the time, without making me feel overloaded with information.  Plus, it has to look good and not make my one arm 5 lbs heavier than the other.

I have to agree with Rory and Scott, this is the dork watch. So far I haven't seen anyone at work rocking one of these but I'd definitely like to see one close to see if it confirms some suspicions I have about their trendiness and utility factor.

They're pretty subtle. I've been wearing one for a few days now, and the only people who knew it was a SPOT watch were people I showed. Nice when you have a few moments to look at your wrist and see the latest news/stocks/weather pop by.
