I4U News reviews the Casio TV Remote Watch CMD-40.
" The programmed functions worked right away. The range of the IR signal is not very wide, but acceptable. Ok, but now I am sitting on my sofa and press buttons with my right hand on buttons on a watch on my left hand. Now just try imagine this picture... This is just not replacing my old TV remote buy a long shot. So I wonder what the uses of a TV remote on a wristwatch could be. "

The cool Japan based cool wrist watch store TokyoFlash tells us that they have a new LED Watch - The High Frequency by Equalizer.
The display of the High Frequency LED Watch pushes up the top row of lights and they float back down in a real equalizer effect, finally all the lights fall down off the face of the watch to leave only two lights to indicate the time for 5 seconds, then the two lights also trail off. The watch measures 50mm x 30mm and weighs 140g. The battery life is supposed very good on this LED watch despite the number of LEDs on it.
The Equalizer watch features time and date display, AM/PM mode and it is water resistant. The face is slightly mirrored. This LED watch is possibly the coolest yet from TokyoFlash.
