A watch of many faces

Crafted by Italian manufacturer I'm, the I'm Watch is big, bold, and made from aluminum. It also has the ability to sport multiple watch faces such as the standard one here.

Splashy start screen

When you power up the I'm Watch, the device proudly displays its branded splash screen. After that, it boots up into its own custom version of Android.

Apps on your wrist

Like its smartwatch competitors from Sony, Motorola, and Pebble, the I'm Watch runs applications such as an address book, calendar, e-mail, and even Twitter.

This watch is worldly, too

One my favorite applications preloaded on the I'm Watch is a world clock that can show the time in many time zones. I also like its retro LED-like readout.

A strap with substance

In terms of strap size, the I'm Watch doesn't mess around. Its rubbery wristband is very wide yet comfortable.

Charge from the left

On the left side of the I'm Watch is its charging port. The jack uses a special 3.5mm headphone plug, which then connects to a standard USB port. You can also see one of the I'm Watch's speakers.
