I know there’s a bit of retro, stock looking nostalgia going on with sunglasses and the like, but to me this is not a very good looking piece of kit. The main body of the Rebel is made of silicon (black in this case) with some aluminium styling for the buckle. The screen is black edged, further shrinking it down with some silver outlines on the sides to denote where buttons are.

There’s several holes in the stap so it should be able to encorporate a good range of wrist sizes and the USB plug connector is found at the opposite end from the buckle.

Flipping things over, there’s a pop cap that reveals the inner workings of the SIM and memory card.

The USB connector is a male one with no surround to speak of.

At the buckle end, there’s a small stylus that slides out of a holder. Unfortunately it’s too small to hold comfortably, even in my rather tiny hands.

There’s a mini USB connector at the buckle end where you can connect the bundled headphones.

There’s even a camera on this thing. It sits stealthily along the side of the watch allowing you to snap pictures on the sly perhaps; unless you wear it on your right wrist, in which case all you’ll be able to snap is your own forearm.

    180.- for this? Wow!

    I’m not sure what I’d do if someone left me the choice between using the Rebel as my watch, phone and camera for the rest of my life or get struck by a horrible disease.

    I bought a white sWaP Rebel from IWOOT for my boyfriends birthday and I must say he absolutely loves it! He uses it all the time and is the centre of attention with all his friends! He has not had any problems to-date and never has the problem of loosing his phone. Ace product and would definitely recommend!

      Would you be offended if I suggested he might be being polite? :p

      Glad he’s not had any problems with it, but being someone that has never lost a phone (touch wood), I would have almost any other phone over this.

    I bought one of these Rebel watches, and I think its amazing, even in this review you can see that the picture and film quality isn’t bad. This is seriously one of the most fun, interesting products I have bought in a long time and I think this reviewer has lost the plot a little.

      Thanks for the comment(s) Tim :p

      I’m afraid though I must disagree, the SWAP watch is garbage.

    Thank you for the informaive honest review.

    In my opinion — Any watch phone using a stylus is an automatic fail, in the time it takes to type, select or even fumble around from removing the stylus to using it, you might as well have pulled an actual cellphone from your pant pocket. Gawd help you should you lose your stylus.
