Dick Tracy, eat your heart out. The Beepwear pager watch by Timex and Motorola can receive and hold 16 alphanumeric messages of up to 104 characters each. It uses Motorola's 900 MHz Flex pager technology and SkyTel's nationwide communications network to provide paging service any time, anywhere. Although small and lightweight, Beepwear is a rugged, splash-resistant, full-featured wristwatch with dual time zones, 10 alarms and an Indiglo night light that flashes to alert you to incoming pages. The pager/watch can be easily detached from the wristband and slipped into a pocket or purse.
