You may recall a small rant I posted last week about the Allerta inPulse BlackBerry smartwatch. At the time, it was nothing more than a rumor documented by a couple of mock up renderings. It appears that it was in fact real and will soon be available for nerds everywhere. The one nagging question that kept pinging my thought process was the price. Being as that you need a stand alone BlackBerry for this watch to work, any price I assumed would be relatively cheap. Now that the inPulse watch is available for pre-order for $149, we can see that while affordable, it isn’t exactly cheap. If I were a BlackBerry user looking at either renewing my wireless contract and getting a new Berry or expanding the usefulness of my current Berry by ordering this inPulse BlackBerry watch sidekick thing, I can tell you that the $150 would certainly go towards a new Berry. To each his own. Though at $149, the inPulse isn’t exactly an impulse buy. Perhaps a $99 price point would spur more sales? The 150mAh that powers this thing may seem puny, but remember, this is a watch. According to the manufacturers, the inPulse will last roughly 4 days per 30 minute charge — pretty promising in the battery department I’ll admit. Still, we’ll have to wait and see how many units freeupyourhands.com moves. Look for actual shipments to start headin’ out the door in February/2010. How do you think they’ll fare?

Specs:

  • 1.3″ OLED display
  • Bluetooth v2.0+EDR
  • Glass lens w/ full metal body
  • 150 mAh lithium-ion polymer battery / microUSB port for charging
  • Vibrating motor
  • Over-the-air firmware updates
  • Requires BlackBerry OS 4.3+
