This thread isn't particularly positive forum.xda-developers.com/arc…tml

Nothing mentions the dimensions, or the battery life, so I suspect its something to wear whilst you're in a gym, rather than something for wearing all day as a wristwatch.

i was interested in this until i just read a comment on xda

from a user on xda

For those who're considering this. Just got mine today in Paris (from Phonehouse.fr in France).

- I'm on a HTC Desire
- there are 2 apps to be downloaded from the Android store: LiveWare manager (this seems to manage the connection and the plugins) and LiveView (the actual tool to manage the device).
- the pairing was immediate but not the connection, and somehow I got to it after random manipulations.
- I've tested notifications from phone to device: it works for calls & SMS. (I did not setup Facebook and Twitter as I totally don't see the point of getting buzzed every 10 seconds...). The vibration is very light and short, I don't think I'll ever sense it on my wrist. Wish it could be configurable.
- However all actions from device to Phone do not seem to work, or they even make LiveView hang. This concerns the music player controls (not working), and some way where from the device you should be able to display the lost calls list on the phone display (but as I said - it hangs the LiveView manager).

By the way... there are only 2 additional plugins: one is a Sony Ericsson new product notification app (useless) and one from SportyPal Pro, a training tool.

Basically so far it's just useful to see lost calls and read SMS without pulling out the phone. And as a watch.

If anyone out there wants to code something useful, I'd like:
- a plugin that displays 4 different timezones on my LiveView watch at once.
- a low battery alert (meaning the phone battery).

Cold but at least its got a OLED screen like the old SF X)
