    Is it a watch? Is it an MP3 player? Is it a video player?

    Nope, it's all of the above - all the above

    From site: -
    If you want to combine a digital watch, music player, and video player in one unit, Aigo has the answer in its F029 multimedia watch. Featuring a 160 x 128 OLED display, 512MB or 1GB of memory, and a mini-USB 2.0 port. Supported media formats include MP3, WMA (DRM), MPEG-4, XviD, and AVI. No word yet on pricing and availablity.
    Haha, I wonder what the bat life will be like

    Good point. Depending on how big it is, they may be able to get some solar panels on it

    EDIT - update on the whole thing. It does have those panels!! Proof I'm beginning to see why some people say I have too much time on my hands.

    I don't think citizen will appreciate you use him for a watch
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    It's a waste of money that's for sure.

    Maybe if the watch uses ZPM, it will run in a very, very, very.... long time . So u don't have to have those solar panel sticks up. (well, but u have to cary the module though)
