Austrian Watch Company Laks offers new MP3 Player Wrist Watch. Update: Read our new Review of the Laks Music Memory Watch.
Laks has launched a USB Flash Drive Wrist Watch last year. We actually had the chance to review the Laks USB Memory Watch.
The Memory Watch is also OEMed by BMW.
Now Laks takes this concept further and is releasing in March 2004 a Wrist Watch with MP3 Player functionality.
The Laks Memory Music comes in 32MB, 64MB, 128MB, 256MB versions. It supports MP3, WMA and ADPCM music formats. Music is uploaded through a USB 1.1 interface. The MP3 Watch has a built-in microphone for voice-recording.
The lithium battery charges within 1.5hours and play-time is 4-5hours.
The watch dial has little led indicators that indicate Equalizer settings and other MP3 functions. More details in Laks Music Memory Watch Manual (pdf).
The Laks Memory Music Watch starts at 89 Euro (~$110) for the 32MB version and the 256MB version sells for $279 Euro (~$350).
From the product photo the watch makes a pretty slick and not bulky impression. The Laks Memory Music Wrist Watch looks like a promissing attempt on a MP3 Player watch. Other companies have tried before. Casio had the WMP-1V on the market a couple of years ago. There was the V@mp MP3 Player Watch and Timex had one. The most recent MP3 Player watch we reported about is from a asian company called Man Power. US online store Meritline is selling that watch under their name.
Thanks to Grant for the Tip.
