About two and a half months have passed since I received my Fossil FX5008 WristPDA from David Zucker(thank you, buddy). Here are answers to a few questions that readers sent in:
Do you wear it as a watch every day?
To be perfectly honest, I wear it about 25% of the time. I never really was a watch person, so the milage that the WristPDA gets is actually very high. However, you should add in that it is empty 50% of the time I carry it around!
What apps do you run on it
Um, the built in ones. I sometimes use the WristPDA as a handy little calculator, and of course as a watch. The integrated watch faces to a very good job for me btw, so no extra software on the machine!
However, text entry or longer work is a real pain, as the screen is way to small and has a very weak contrast! In fact, the WristPDA didnt even get HotSynced yet! Ah, and I played The Prison on it once!
How is the screen
Dim, rather bad contrast. It is pretty usable, but you shouldnt put one of your homemade screen protectors on it…
Would you purchase it again
At 60$, probably yes. The watch is a funky acceccoire to show off at parties and um, having a computer on your wrist is just insane.
What mileage did you get out of your WristPDA?
