Wristwatch Plays Music, Displays Videos

I’m not such a big fan of squinting at a viewscreen. I rather like my videos to be big enough to be seen halfway across the room. But I’m old-fashioned. I do like watches, though, and I particularly like the idea of viewing video images on a watch screen, even it’s only 1.8 inches in width. The very idea that you can literally take your TV with you wherever you go intrigues me to no end.

Chinavision, the manufacturer, uses the word widescreen to describe the display of the product, which has the rather long name of CVESG-S818-2. I’m not so sure that’s an apt description, except as a way of saying that it’s a horizontal, not a vertical display. When you’re looking at a horizontal image, you’re of the mind that what you’re seeing is larger just because it looks like a “normal” viewscreen.

As you can see from the photo, this is primarily an MP4 player. Watch all of those videos you want. You can also view static images, including JPEGs and other image file formats. You can also subtract 1 from that MP4 and listen to MP3s using a pair of headphones, which are included. The CVESG-S818-2 does WMAs and WAV files as well, and can tune in FM radio, too. It even functions as a voice recorder.

The one drawback that I can see is that the internal memory is just 2GB and you have no way of expanding that. You can transfer files back and forth via USB, but that’s your only form of data management. Still, for US$56, this product looks like a great bargain.
