Bluetooth headset is selling point for MP3 watch

Manufacturers try new approaches to get products to take off.

MP3 watches are slowly being introduced by U.S. companies , but for the most part they're still largely an overseas phenomenon (and, in some cases, that's not a bad thing ). So it makes sense that some manufacturers and distributors are trying to come up with new ways to market them.

The oddly named Goldlantern Bluex watch aims to do just that, according to GadgetGrid, by coming bundled with Bluetooth headphones for a package of products that actually look decent. The water- and shock-resistant watch has 1GB of built-in storage, a USB port, rechargeable lithium ion battery, and aluminum alloy case. And if the watch turns out to be junk, you can still use the headset with your phone.
