    The Hands On Talk (HOT) Watch is essentially a smartwatch that keeps you from having to bring out your phone every time you want to do something. It pairs with your phone via Bluetooth and then takes over. Need to check the weather quickly? Check your watch. Need to see if you got that important email? Check your watch.

    The key selling point, though, is the Hands On Talk functionality. Linking to your smartphone via Bluetooth, you simply cup your hand over your ear. The watch uses that as an amplifier, so you can keep your side of the conversation private, or possibly pretend that you’re talking into your cuff-link like James Bond. Needless to say, if you need speakerphone, that’s also available, and of course you can see your text messages.

    It’s also fairly stylish as well, and comes in four different styles-  Edge, Classic, Basic and Curve.
