    From the animations at the site, here's a shot from the demo for the phone history:

    Incidentally, I neither wear Gucci nor plan to buy a smartwatch. Simply, http://www.puls.com/#/puls was an unexpected redirect from http://i.am/****ed, which I stumbled across in a 2002 post. Serendipitous, but probably not amongst the redirects that Will could have foreseen :D

    Seeing things to the left of the band – and words such as Fashionology – at first I imagined that it was an April Fool thing. No joke, it was covered by Vogue and others … in March.

    With the Gucci connection in mind, quotes from 2013 and 2014:

    Cost, fashion and status symbols aside: I do find the PULS more appealing than Apple Watch …

    I'm sure he was wearing that at the weekend. He was at the formula-e.

    It wouldn't surprise me.

    I never planned to buy anything like it, and I rarely watch that programme … like I said, serendipity. And I couldn't find the word PULS anywhere in MacRumors forums, so I posted it :)

    If I remember correctly he even tried taking a call with it at one point around beginning 2014 to Cheryl Cole and it was a bit of a disaster. :D

    Oh OK so I wondered whether the PULS trademark was relatively new, a glance at http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://www.puls.com shows that it has been around for a while. If the word has been around for so many months, is this really the first topic to mention the word, in relation to a watch, in MacRumors forums?

    This thread starts with an opening link to the puls handset on CNet - but not referred too as PULS by thread posters.

    Oh we discussed it in the alternatives I think .. God my memory is bad - I posted on it :p

    http://forums.macrumors.com/threads/will-i-ams-smartwatch.1723095/

    But no-one mentioned PULS as I don't think any of us new what it would be called ...

    So not too much traction.

    Thanks @MRU so I'll request a lock or merger of this topic, and anyone with an interest can continue under Will.i.am's Smartwatch
