Is there a bluetooth device like this?

Asked by XOIIO (18325points) February 4th, 2012

Well, I have a couple bluetooth headsets for my iPod, and it’s great, except when I have to pull it out to see what song I’m listening too. Thinkgeek has a watch with bluetooth caller ID, and they had a bracelet like that too. I was wondering if there is a bluetooth wristband that would show the current song playing, both when it starts and with the press of a button.

Something like this that would also display song names.

Sounds to me like something that needs to be hacked. I don’t know of anything currently in existence that does this, but it seems like a simple matter of programming.

@jerv That’s what I figured too. One problem is that most caller ID’s are built into headsets, and the device would be detected as such, at least the one I liked to is, and I’m not sure how I could hack it. If IOS supports it though, then maybe you could make an arduino device or something like that.

That is where Linux and Android have an advantage since things are a bit more open. Still, I see no technical reason why you couldn’t spoof it in iOS.

I know there is an existing protocol for it in iOS, because when I play my iphone through my car stereo via bluetooth the artist/song displays on the dashboard screen… don’t know of a watch-type device though.

I’m thinking a way to do it might be that android watch, but I don’t have the money, hacking skills or interest to do that XD
