I have one, it does tuck into the band, aside from USB on the clasp it
tucks into you wouldn't even know it is their. It is nice, I got it as a
gift but I don't use it much. The only two complaints are: 1. The band
that the watch strap normally tucks into to keep it from flapping is also
where the USB connector hides. Actually kind of ingenious. But the band
is very rigid and I have to take the watch off after awhile of typing
because it digs into my wrist. The other thing I don't like is the
crystal is a little to convex so it gets scratched up easily. But it is
very nice to have. They now make a 256M and a 512M. Somewhere I have a
link to the orginal manufacturer Xenix I think. Any how if you want to
buy about 500 of them (prepaid) they will private brand for you :)
