I cannot, only because I know nothing about it nor have I used it. For $50 though it does sound kind of cool, though features are limited. 

Adam get a hold on one of these. We need to know how it handles notifications.
Thanks.

Hmmm.... Idk about this one. My biggest concern is lack of support for text or email notifications which is the main reason I would want one. I would almost say its more of a Bluetooth headset for your arm. Another issue I see is the same as the Todd Hamilton iWatch concept Adam posted about on 1/22/14, the vertical display would make reading any notifications a bit awkward. Wish Mota went into more detail on their website. Still for $50 it's not a bad whistle wetter for what's out there.

I ordered one how can you go wrong for 50 dollars could be pretty cool.

It looks like this watch works exclusively with standard Bluetooth profiles. Meaning it should provide all the same features for Windows Phone or any smart phone. However, non-Bluetooth standard features like SMS, email, calendar, Twitter, Facebook, etc. that require a host app on the phone are probably not possible at all. Still for $50 probably a good value at least until Archos comes out with their low-end smart watch.

Looks cool, love the design ... And for the price it isn't too shabby. A bit too low end for me, perhaps if they improved the materials a bit ... Higher res display this would be more compelling for me.

I received mine yesterday and for a limited device it seems well made. It is a bracelet that I use along side my pebble and seems to work fine. Remember this is not full function but the phone calls work well and music is perfect coming from my wrist. Like the post above it is like a bluetooth headset. I will recommend this if you realize it is not a true smartwatch.

Hi fkpalm. As it uses a traditional BT rather than the low energy I'm worried about the autonomy of the smartphone. Do you have any feedback?

So I bought one from Groupon it took a week to get and they are shipping them from "Groupon Returns" I got an open box product and had scratches on it.. I asked for a refund or 1/2 credit. The watch is only in miltary time, the sound isnt too bad making and getting calls, the small is really small. But Im still mad they sent me a returned product.
