TechCrunch showcases the PULS, a digital wearable created by Black Eyed Peas frontman will.i.am. The device allows users to make calls and text without having the need for a smartphone for connectivity.

He’s been talking about this device for a while now, referring to it as more of a fashion technology than a watch. And he’s right. The device, called the PULS, is much more than a watch. It’s definitely a wearable that has a watch in it, but it also has a GPS map system, a music player, fitness tracker that tracks your steps, weight and calories burned, social network sites like Facebook and Twitter and it can use your contacts to call or text, without the need for a phone.
