Watchphones don't make much sense, do they?

Why wear your phone on your wrist, where its bulk will be extremely annoying, when you can keep a more fully-functional device in your pocket? But hey, don't tell that to the makers of the Gauntlet watchphone!

The phone, which connects to a Bluetooth headset for calls, has a touchscreen face for interacting with features such as a music player and very basic email reader. Oh, and it tells the time, naturally. If it was 1980, this thing would be amazing, but it's 2009, and it isn't.
