We are well known in the watch/gadget department around here at OhGizmo. We’re watch-o-philes, if you will. Citizen has taken an idea put forth by Seiko in a prototype and come out with their own, more robust version. The i?VIRT TM is a Bluetooth watch that can hook into your cellphone and act as a caller id screen. Not only that, but it can actually control the phone and do many other functions, such as light up or vibrate when a call is coming in, or even forward or put a call on hold.

While Seiko has shown the tech, Citizen will actually be releasing it soon to the masses. No word on price but for what it can do, expect it not to be cheap. Here, if you can find it, is the Citizen page [in Japanese] where more details might be had.

A graduate of Colgate University, Bruce is one of the elite Henro or pilgrims who have completed the 900 mile 88 Temple Pilgrimage on the island of Shikoku, Japan by means of foot power, a feat (no pun intended.... ok maybe alittle) which is no laughing matter. He not only finished this task with a crippling leg injury but he has attained enlightenment according to the monks on Koyasan. Currently the 23 year old is living in San Antonio where he spends his time working as a Data Analyst but also trying to accomplish his next great challenge, drinking all 200 beers at the Flying Saucer. Having recently married his long time friend from college and seen as nuts for doing so, Bruce relishes his life and hot dogs generously. KANPAI!!
