Taking a few minutes from making beats, Will.i.am has just unveiled his Puls wristband. It's a smartwatch to the rest of us, but it doesn't need to be tethered to a smartphone in order to send text messages, make calls, or send emails.

Will reiterated that it's not a watch, as smartwatches don't normally come with SIM cards, but the Puls does. It also features speakers, and a curved screen along its body, which makes it look quite stylish. The Puls also rocks 16GB of on-board flash, 1GB of RAM, GPS, a battery that wraps around the bracelet, pedometer, and accelerometer.

 

The Puls runs an Android OS, with Qualcomm providing a Snapdragon processor to go inside. Puls connects to the Internet through 3G, but it also connects through Wi-Fi. This means that it can have carrier plans through companies like AT&T in teh US, and O2 in the UK.
