Incredibly thin watch uses E Ink screen
The wristwatch isn't as popular as it was in years past. As more and more people have adopted smartphones, fewer people actually wear watches. However, a lot of geeks see watches as a fashion statement and if you're one of those people, a company called Central Standard Timing has unveiled a very cool watch at CES 2013.
The watch is called the CST-01 and claims to be the world's thinnest watch. The watch is 0.80 mm thick making it thinner than a credit card. It uses an E Ink display that is laminated inside of a very thin 0.5 mm thick pocket that is etched into a single piece of flexible stainless steel.
The watch is powered by a very thin battery that charges in 10 min. using an external dock and promises a month of use per charge. The watch is on Kickstarter seeking funding now and hopes to ship in Q2 2013. The watch is available to pre-order for $129.
