The sWaP Rebel had me doing a double take because I thought it was yet another iPod Nano watch, but it's not. It's actually a cellphone, camera, music player, video player, clock, FM radio, calendar and e-reader rolled into one — worn on your wrist. Did I hear Dick Tracy calling?
Pop in your GSM-based SIM card and you 1.46-inch touchscreen sWaP is good to go. Relax, you'll be getting blank stares from strangers in no time when you start speaking into your watch on the street. "Do you copy? Over."
I've always had a knack to channel my inner spy, but never had the means to do so inconspicuously, until now. With support for 3GP and MPEG-4 video recordings, 128MB of internal storage (expandable up to 8GB with a microSD card) and USB transfers, the sWaP looks like a resourceful way of stalking a Facebook friend, I mean real life friend.
Spy gear isn't cheap, especially not one that doesn't look like spy gear. Americans will have to hop over the pond to get a sWaP Rebel because it's only available in the U.K. for about $298. And look at all those pretty colors.
