I received an email alerting me of this pre order. What a great idea. I miss plenty of calls due to my noisy work environment and not being able to feel the vibrating phone in my belt holster.

fixed that link for you.....

interesting idea, but at $55 for something that you can have the phone do(putting the phone on vibrate) is such a put off. bring the price down....and like kolio suggested a watch face then maybe.

Very good. Very useful. I particularly like that it doesn't have a clock face. I'm sold.

That is a pretty cool concept. Unfortunately budgetary restrictions will force me to wait until this is in the deep discount section of Amazon or somewhere. So I'll probably get one in 2015.

Good post, I look forward to reading the various reviews, once it's released.

I like the idea of the alert system regarding leaving your phone somewhere.
