ThinkGeek :: Wi-Fi Detecting Watch

Link: http://www.thinkgeek.com/gadgets/watches/9313/

When I first heard about this WiFi Detecting Watch, I thought it might be neat enough to get....though I probably should've read the description a bit better.

It just detects the presence of WiFi and reports on signal strength....it doesn't report SSIDs or what WiFi is present.

And, I don't know if it is really insensitive or what, because when I'm on campus, it always reports 00....even though I know that there is pretty much total WiFi coverage on campus. Just the closed K-State WiFi network. Though it seems to give readings of WiFi at home. Though I don't know if it is reporting scores for my WiFi network or somebody else's.

There might be a strong open network that its seeing, instead of the local closed network. Or maybe it can only detect APs within a few feet....no idea where the APs are on campus, though I could probably find out if I really wanted to....

The other features on the watch are kind of confusing as well, and it doesn't fit very well, etc. So, I'll probably still be looking for a new watch....assuming that I still want to be wearing a watch. :??:

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
