As many Provinces in Canada start to ban cellphone use in vehicles, more and more companies are developing hands-free solutions.

Recently announced, the Ontario based company, Allerta, has begun taking pre-orders for their soon to be released inPulse Smartwatch for BlackBerry. This stylish watch connects wirelessly to your BlackBerry (via Bluetooth), and allows you to catch those important messages, emails and calls, even if your hands are full.

The built-in vibrating motor in the watch alerts you to incoming calls or messages and the colour touchscreen OLED screen shows all the important information like caller ID, text messages, email titles, calendar alerts etc. The watch even grabs the time directly from your BlackBerry, as well as allowing you to set custom alarms, timers, message filters etc. right from your phone.

The rechargeable battery lasts for about 4 days under "normal use" and can be charged in less then 30 minutes via the included micro-USB cable.

A few features are missing, like being able to send messages directly from your watch, and it's not rated to be waterproof or water-resistant (however it should be fine for rain etc.), but for anyone who always has their hands full, this watch is sure to impress.

Allerta is currently taking pre-orders for the limited first edition inPulse watch for $149 US, and are planning to ship it in February, 2010.
