This watch has a 50/50 chance of getting you arrested. It’s essentially a minuscule video camcorder (records in AVI format) embedded in a watch. The files can then be transferred later to a computer for viewing/archiving.
It comes with an impressive 8GB of storage (note: by the time you’re finished reading this post, 8GB of storage will no longer be impressive), meaning you can record hours of mindless meetings, encounters at the convenience store and an afternoon spent reading Kindle 2 reviews. I’m not actually sure why anyone would need this watch for anything less than clandestine, but it’s still awesome.
Of course, you could think about it this way – let’s say you stop in at the bank on your way home from work. All of a sudden, a hold-up is underway. Well, guess who’s videotaping the perps and nobody’s the wiser? You, that’s who. Local News Hero Status, here we come.
It’s also kind of a cool watch and certainly beats the calculator watch hands down. It’s full metal, has a glass cover and it’s gear driven in seconds, minutes and hours (how they fit gears in there with a miniature camcorder and flash memory, I have no idea).
The watch comes with a USB cable, user manual, and Power adapter (110-240V 50/60Hz). It sells at ThinkGeek for $99.99
