Like any decent gadget freaks, we've fancied the idea of a video wristwatch since we were kids. But as tempting as some of the early versions might be, they just look, well, cheap. (And at prices starting just over $50, they are.)
It was only a matter of time before the marketing people got involved, however, and Epoq has come out with a model that Mobile Magazine calls an "upscale" MP4 watch. The reason? A silver metallic case and a leather strap, as opposed to the standard black plastic accoutrements (yech) of previous products. Other than that, its features seem pretty much the same, with a 1.5-inch screen and 2GB of storage, as well as MP3 and FM radio play, while still maintaining a relatively reasonable price at $170.
Oh, and before we forget: It's the first one we've seen to confirm that it actually tells time.
