Fossil and Sunto Smart Watches Come onto the Market according to a New York Times article by David Pogue at State of the Art: Microsoft's Latest, Strapped to a Wrist where it is stated:
"Starting next week, two watchmakers, Fossil and Suunto, will offer what Microsoft calls Smart Watches with MSN Direct, which Bill Gates has been describing in trade-show speeches for two years now. The twist is that these watches can download and display tiny bits of text information from the Web: stock prices, news clips, weather data. "
Pogue concludes that this is a watch for "gadget freaks" - but there are a LOT of those around. We shall see how the watch does. I predict it will be a big hit. Watches have always been a mark of one-upmanship Rolex-ing as it were, and this is just the next step forward.

Via WORDLAB | The Free Business Naming and Branding Community we are directed to Vigilant Watch, a watch of a different kind, which monitors radiation exposure.
There definitely are professions who could use this watch.
Let us hope that the rest of us never need it.
