MSN Direct SPOT watches R.I.P.

MSN direct spot watch

Back in 2004 we reviewed a MSN Direct Fossil Wrist Net Smart Watch and it wasn’t exactly awe inspiring: bulky, unattractive, poor coverage (a bit like the people that wore them)


Microsoft tried to keep them alive but finally pulled the plug:

“As of recently, the Smart Watches with MSN Direct have sold out and are no longer for sale. While we continue to move forward with MSN Direct and seeking out new opportunities for devices that would benefit from the MSN Direct service, we, along with our watch partners, do not have immediate plans to create a new version of the Smart Watch, as we are focused on other areas of our business. We will maintain support of our watch customers and continue to deliver information to the watches, but we do not plan to increase our investment in the watch business going forward.”
