One thing about portable devices is that, unless you want to lug a speaker around with you, you are stuck listening to them through headphones. If only there was a better way . . . Now bem has come out with a wireless speaker band that you wear like a wristwatch and connect to your smartphone, ipod or tablet

Your sound will always be within easy reach with bem's wireless Speaker Band. Designed to wrap around your wrist like a bracelet or band, the Bluetooth speaker gives you yet another way to share your music on the go.
Although the speaker band is heavier than your typical bracelet, it's lighter than most speakers, making it relatively comfortable to wear. Simply wrap the soft band around your wrist and fasten its watch-like clasp.
By using the square-shaped speaker's controls and built-in microphone, you can adjust the volume, switch tracks and take incoming calls. Equipped with a built-in rechargeable battery, the speaker can deliver about six hours of talk time on one full charge. Available in white, black, red, blue, gray and green, it ships with a USB cord.
Available to preorder for $50, it is expected to be available later this spring
