TokyoFlash has put out quite the variety of interesting watch models, Â and I’ve also seen other watches that put digital storage on your wrist. Â Today, we’ll see both of those put together withÂ theÂ UploadÂ watch.
Generally, when we see a watch that digital storage on it, it’s some clunky mess (and offers under a gig of storage), or it’s someone just offering a case to put your iPod nano into (which is a whole different thing all together). Â Here, however, we’ve actually got an interesting package.
As you’d expect, the watch syncs via USB. Â The storage, however, is actually aÂ user-replaceable micro SD card. Â So, while the watch comes with a 2 GB chip in it, you could very easily bump it up to whatever capacity your wallet will allow. Â Since the watch itself isn’t using the chip (it’s acting more like a USB reader, in a sense), I would imagine that capacity isn’t limited by the hardware.
And speaking of the hardware, this is one of the easier-to-read display methods I’ve seen from TF. Â Sure, it may not be a visually interesting (or give you a sense of accomplishment when learning to read it), but there is a nice simplicity to it. Â If you look at the display straight-on, it looks to be overly stretched.
However, look at it from an angle, and the numbers compress, and you can very easily read it. Â In other words, this is going to be a VERY easy watch to read if you glance down for the time at your desk, or while you’re driving.
In another twist, we have a rechargeable battery (also done via the USB lashup). Â A charge takes under 4 hours, and should be good for at least 3 months. Â With that lasting at least 3 months, and the battery handling 300 charges, you should get a lifetime out of the battery. Â Of course, if you don’t, it’s user-replaceable, so you won’t be dead in the water.
You can pick yours upÂ hereÂ for $169 – looks like a good price if you always want to make sure you’ve got your digital files with you.
