Whether it's for yourself or for someone dear to you who loves iDevices, the Cookoo Connected Watch is the perfect, affordable gizmo to give as a stylish-and-at-the-same-time-geeky present not only this Love Month but the whole year long.

I mean, the packaging alone would tell you how special this unique timepiece is.

Totally in line with the device's branding, the Cookoo Watch comes with a cute and eye-catching plastic case that looks like a birdhouse. I think this speaks greatly about the creativity and passion of the people behind this product.

Turning the case around, you'll find this sticker giving you an idea of what sets Cookoo apart from other watches swamping the market. Aside from being a water-resistant timepiece, the Cookoo Watch can actually connect to various Apple mobile devices including the iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, The New iPad, iPad 4, iPad Mini, and iPod Touch 5th Generation via Bluetooth and deliver a gamut of integration features like sending alarms and notifications for calls and messages, delivering out of range alerts in case you accidentally leave your iPad or iPhone, and the ability to take photos remotely, among many others.

Cookoo currently has a free application in the App Store that you need to download and install on your iDevice for fast and convenient pairing with the watch and for quickly changing its settings. I'll show you how to do that in the coming days.

Outside the package, you'll find these dangling set of cards detailing the many unique capabilities of the Cookoo Watch in various languages. ConnecteDevice Ltd., the company behind this brand, didn't have to add this since a manual is already included inside the box but - for me - the fact that they did shows that they want Cookoo watch to stand-out all the more when placed in the shelf alongside competing brands -- after all, everything is in the details.

I got mine in Black with Cyan accents. I chose this color because it easily blends or goes well with any outfit or get-up and, as you all know, I just love lighter shades of blue.

The package contains the Cookoo Connected Watch unit itself, the user manual which unravels or unfolds like a giant map, and the Cookoo logo sticker. This sticker, according to the company, is something you can use to reuse the box for other purposes (I don't know how that works exactly), which is kind of their humble attempt at being environment-friendly.

This is how the watch looks when you wear it. I love it! If you ask me, I think the design is very hip, elegant, and versatile. Cookoo Watch, I bet, will look great on you whether you're wearing a casual get-up or a formal outfit.

The stellar combination of the metal back cover and the polycarbonate shell provide much needed durability to the watch. Also, as you can see in the photo, Cookoo makes it easy for users to change the battery of the device using a coin -- something that you'll rarely do. Our friends at the company officially distributing Cookoo in the Philippines told me during our meeting earlier this month that the battery that comes with the device should last for at least a year.
