I’ve been using a Suunto watch powered by Microsoft’s old SPOT (Smart Personal Objects Technology) since around 2005. Although it is a failed product whose wireless service will be turned off on January 1, 2012, I’ve found my Suunto SPOT powered watch to be useful over all these years. It provided news alerts, weather, calendar alerts and even adjusted its time when I landed in a U.S. or Canadian city in a different time zone.
