Abstract

The invention relates to a method for representing alphanumeric characters and/or visual signalling symbols and/or control signals arriving for display at a mobile transceiver (MF). According to the invention, such characters/symbols/signals, after transmission to a wrist watch (AU), are represented on said wrist watch due to a display unit (AE2).

Description

Watch as an external display for a mobile device

The invention relates to a method according to the preamble of claim 1 and a wristwatch according to the Oberbe ¬ handle of claim. 4

Between the subscribers of a cellular radio network or Mo ¬ bilfunksystems digital data can be exchanged. The mobile system can be designed according to the GSM standard (radio transmission system in accordance with the recommendations of the CEPT subcommittee Group S_pecial Mobile or Global System for Mobile Communica- tion, GSM) or according to the DECT (Digital European Cordless Telecommunication, DECT).

The exchanged digital data digitized voice signals, data for fax communications or general data for stationary or mobile computing systems such as personal computers or laptops, to be. In addition, existing short message can be transmitted to the mobile devices, which are displayed on the display via the mobile radio system consist of alphanumeric characters.

The mobile devices are becoming smaller, so that they see inzwi- can be carried in pocket or jacket pockets. To check for and read the short message, the mobile device must be taken out of the bag.

The invention has for its object to simplify the handling of the mobile device.

This object is achieved for a method by the in claim l and for a wristwatch by the features defined in claim 4 features.

By displaying the characters on the display of a wristwatch, the messages can be easily read. Next also dialing in the handling is simplified ¬ kindled because, for example, to connect the mobile radio device does not have to be taken from his pocket.

In the following the invention will be described with reference to an illustrated in the drawings embodiment.

In the single FIG MF a mobile radio device is shown, which communicates via an antenna A with a not-shown mobile radio system in conjunction. The antenna A is connected to a radio device FE, having an RF transmitter and a receiver. The radio FE is connected to a logic circuit LS. The logic circuit LS is used for digital signal processing of the data transmitted between the mobile radio and mobile MF system data and for controlling the mobile radio device MF itself.

The mobile device MF has a user interface B01, which are implemented for example by a keyboard and / or a trackball. Next is a display device AE1, for example, a graphical LC display is provided.

A Signalumformeinrichtung SU is used for processing the analog voice signals are output through a loudspeaker Ll or are picked up by a microphone MK1. The Signalumformeinrichtung SU for this purpose has on A / D or D / A converter or codec circuits.

The logic circuit LS, the user interface BOl with the display means AE1 and the Signalumformeinrichtung SU, and a data interface DS1 are connected to each other via a data bus DB1.

For energy supply, the mobile radio device MF to a power supply SV. According to the invention isplay in a mobile radio device to the MF A entering alphanumeric characters and / or visual signaling signals and / or control characters are displayed on an external display device AE2. This display device AE2 is integrated into a wristwatch or UA is the already existing display screen of the watch UA.

The alphanumeric characters preferably represent the short message. The visual signaling signals, for example, an image displayed on the display device AE2 symbol through which a is signaled at the mobile radiotelephone MF incoming call. an initiated connection or accepting a call at the called subscriber is indicated by a different icon. Control characters are used for example for displaying a battery or field strength indicator.

To carry out the process of the invention belonging to this character data via the data bus DB1 to the data interface DS1 and be passed on to a transmitting device SEI. The transmitting device SEI is preferably wireless, and transfers this data to watch UA. About the transmitter SEI the mobile unit MF is connected to an external display screen. The transmitting device SEI operates, for example in the RF range or in the ultrasonic range. It can also be realized by inductive coupling.

The watch UA has a display device and a receiving device AE2 EE2 for performing the method according to the invention. The signals received by the clock UA data given from the receiving device to the display device EE2 AE2 and displayed there. The control device is required for the invention of minor importance and not explicitly shown in the figure. This functional can be done for example by the clock already EXISTING ¬ dene control.

The receiving device EE2 is connected to a data interface DS2 which is connected via a data bus DB2 to the Ad ¬ geeinrichtung AE2. a user interface B02 as well as the data interface DS2 a transmitting device SE2 is required, connected to the data bus DB2. In this circuit components will be discussed later.

In addition, in the clock UA a loudspeaker Ll or a beeper may be provided through which the received from the mobile MF signaling characters, such as a ringing signal is outputted. The loudspeaker Ll is, examples play, via a digital to analog converter, connected to said receiving means EE2 (not shown in the figure). The data for the signaling characters in the mobile telephone MF from the logic circuit LS via the data interface DS and the transmitting device to the SEI AM UA given.

In a further development of the invention in the watch UA a user interface B02 is provided. About it the connection may for example be initiated. The number dialing by voice control can be done via a microphone MK2. The user interface B02 and the microphone MK2 with a downstream Signalumformeinrichtung (not shown in the figure) are connected with a transmitting device SE2. The transmitting device SE2 is, again preferably wirelessly, having provided in the mobile telephone MF receiver EE1 in conjunction. The receiving device EE1 is connected to the data interface and DS are belonging to the inputted signals and data to the numbers Lo gikschaltung LS.

About the microphone MK2 also operating commands can ultimately advertising given to the logic circuit LS of the mobile station MF to. The microphone MK2, together with the voice input an enhanced user interface B02 to the user.

The user interface B02 may also serve as touch-sensitive surface, such as the display device AE2 be formed.

The watch UA may also have a folding display, so that the display device is AE2 greatly enlarged, and thus more extensive texts can be displayed. At the same time, the folding screen can accommodate a larger user interface B02.

Before transferring data between mobile device and MF wristwatch UA authentication is usefully performed. This ensures that the data is transmitted only to the associated PM UA or vice versa just the right mobile device MF. Thus, no interference with the devices, watch UA and mobile device MF, for example, standing close together user experience.
