Does-this-product-exist-filter: a bluetooth "headset" that looks and acts like a mid-late 90s flip-phone?

What I'm imagining is something that resembles the kinds of no-frills flip phones that were common in the late 90s and early 00s, except it's not actually a "phone": it's just a bluetooth headset that can be paired to your "real" phone.
Ideally it'd ring instead of your actual phone, let you use it to dial instead of your actual phone, and show whatever caller ID info your real phone can forward to it.
My motivation is that all smartphones keep getting larger-and-larger, so much so that they look a little silly and can be awkward to take out and put away. It'd be really nice if I could keep my smartphone buried in my pocket or bag and use my little flip-"phone" for placing and taking calls.
Does this kind of product exist?
