Unboxing the Martian Passport Watch

Culture
I have been waiting for this. I'm unboxing the Martian Passport Watch. It's a Bluetooth voice controlled watch that apparently screens your phone calls and your messages. It's all part of this whole smart watch craze. And each one of these gonna have its brief moment in the sun until and if Apple announces one. So let's give it its moment. Get out of the box. It comes in black, gray or white. I went with the slightly more girly white because I can. Okay. Look at that. I guess it's about as attractive as it can be considering that it's a smart watch. It's not bad though compared to like the I'm Watch. Not bad. We have our USB charging cable here and that is basically it because it's a watch. I mean, as really big watches go, it's actually not, you know, I mean I wear a really big watch. It's a little more square. But what I like about it is it doesn't look like some kind of dumb gadget. It looks like kind of a fancy white watch, except for the giant M right here. All right, so let's see if we can figure out how to turn this thing up. It basically has a little one line screen here and I guess that's where you get your info but I am already [unk] by power, power. [unk] power. No power. USB, not power. I might have to look at the directions. Quick connect guide. Got to turn your watch on. Tap both button simultaneously. Oh, these two. Maybe it's dead. Well, I tried to figure out how to turn it on. I guess I'll go through the specs. The Martian Passport Watch has an analog watch-based and a one line OLED Display at the bottom with a multi-color LED notification light. There's a microphone and the speaker and old fashion physical buttons on the sides. The top button initiates Bluetooth pairing and answers or ends calls or starts voice activated services. The Passport has a stainless steel case and blast with an anti-scratch crystal face and a gray Plastic rays on plate on the back. It has Bluetooth 4.0 and a micro USB port. It connects with Siri or Android voice. The Martian works with Android phones that support voice command; the iPad 2 and later, iPod Touch 4th generation and later and the iPhone 3GS or later. On Android, there's a Martian alerts app that does a few more tricks than on iOS. It can adjust the vibration strength, patch-in notifications from almost any notification-ready app on your phone and even push local time and weather information so it comes up on an OLED screen with a push of a button. The Martian doesn't operate very far from your smartphone. According to our CNET editors, it can only work about 10 feet away. Other features include a magnetometer and a 3 axis accelerometer. The watch comes in 3 different designs with both black and white and various wristbands in silicon and leather. Martian makes 2 other models the circular victory and the candy-colored G2G. The Victory and the Passport cost $299, while the G2G cost $249. I will say, first impression straight out of the box is a lot prettier than I thought it was gonna be and that is already a victory.
