The tiny Wimm One packs a big Android punch (pictures)

The $199 Wimm One is a cutting-edge Android watch that's powerful, flexible, and thankfully stable.

A smart watch and more

On the surface the $199 Wimm One is a highly capable smart watch running its own flavor of Android. Under the skin though are powerful components such as 2GB of RAM, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi radios, and support for third-party applications.

Pick a face

The Wimm One comes with many watch faces to choose from, which you pull up with a long tap of the touch screen.

Classic digits

One of my favorite watch faces on the Wimm One is one named Fahrenheit. It displays the time, date, and weather in an old-school digital readout.

Pretty dots

Another of the Wimm One's watch faces that will draw eyes is one named Swinger. It surrounds a digital clock with colorful, flickering dots that constantly wink in and out.

Made to be modular

Measuring a relatively small 1.26 inches tall by 1.4 inches wide by 0.49 inch thick, the Wimm One doesn't take up much space. It's a self-contained micro computer that's built to eventually fit into many accessories such as wrist bands, lanyards, belt clips, and maybe even keychains.

Turn it on

Besides the touch screen, the Wimm One's only other control is a small power button that sits on the device's right side.

Count your steps

One of the apps the Wimm One can run is a pedometer that tracks steps taken. The watch uses the internal accelerometer to do so.

Barcode contacts

Want to convert your contact info into a smartphone-readable bar code? No problem, a third-party developer has made a Wimm micro app for that.

Use the Wimm One's world clock to learn what time it is around the globe.
