MSN Direct Watch

Yes, a Microsoft-devised device for your wrist. These digital timepieces feature radio receivers that pull in customized news, sports scores, restaurant picks, stock quotes, weather reports, even your personal calendar items and instant messages. To deliver the data, Microsoft worked with broadcasters to create a new FM radio subcarrier network covering more than 100 top metropolitan areas in the United States and Canada. Several manufacturers, including Fossil and Suunto, are producing the watches, with prices starting at $130. Service runs $10/month or $60/year.

There can only be good things comoing from this watch, unless of course you're using it the wrong time. It can also be very useful if you don't have a newspaper or computer handy. I wonder how so much information can be installed on something as small as that watch and still look good enough to wear.
