We dropped the chunky on the Swatch SPOT earlier this week, and now we got our FM-seeking crubby paws one, and of course, took lots of pictures. There are other colors, but these, friends, are the orange and blue models.

Some things worth noting, battery life seems to be way better, as in up to 5 days without needing to charge up; there?s also custom location based content provided by Time Out, so there?s actually some hip stuff you could potentially see. Swatch did the right thing and have a lot of free content on the watch from the start and then once you taste the sweet nectar of watch data, you?ll likely upgrade.

As far as hardware goes, this is a nice SPOT watch as far as SPOT watches go, check out our podcast for a more detailed review.

But, not to be out down in the wrist real estate arena, Fossil is rumored to be releasing a new series of SPOT watches next week.

One last thing, we heard from the Swatch retailers that Swatch actually went out and talked to many of the store managers for not only the pricing, but also what types of services, free and fee to have on the watch?nicely done. If Fossil and Suunto had done that from the start, SPOT would have been way better off from the get go.
