Cheapish Smart Watch

Sign that the smart watch bubble is about to burst?

Morgans are selling Android smart watches (which to me look amazingly clunky, but tastes differ) for £59.95 - apparently they work as stand-alone phones if you fit a SIM card and have bluetooth and Wifi. Usual disclaimer - I used to work for Morgans and still see their ads more than other dealers, there may be better deals / products out there.

Today's Portobello Road bargain...

...was a 16gb Creative Zen MX for £8

Just charging it up - seems to work OK, e.g. it plays the clips that are already in memory, but I have no idea how good the battery is etc., might turn out to be borked in some way, and I haven't looked into software etc. yet. But I think I got a pretty good deal.
