Helium HDBT-990 is no watch phone

The Helium HDBT-990 is no crazy LG Watch Phone (or the Dick Tracy watch, for that matter), but it does act as a "Wristband Communicator" that you can pair with your Bluetooth-enabled phone.

Helium HDBT-990 Wristband Communicator

We first drooled over the LG Watch Phone at CES 2009, but as we have yet to see signs of it in the U.S., we have to make do with gadgets like this Bluetooth Wristband Communicator from Helium Digital.

The HDBT-990 is not even a watch, but you can use it to receive calls with incoming caller ID, vibration alerts, and even A2DP audio streaming (though you'll probably risk annoying your neighbors). It has up to 4 hours of talk time and 160 hours of standby time, and promises noise-cancellation, as well. It'll be available in February for around $87.
