Introducing the Kisai Oto




Do you love your ThinkGeek Equalizer t-shirt, but wish you could wear it more frequently?  Then, friend, TokyoFlash has quite an alternative to offer you.


My guess is that a graphical sound meter has been implemented in watches before, but I can’t think of any off the top of my head.  As with most TF watches, it seems to be well-designed, and is at a really affordable price (intro price is $99, afterwards it goes up).  Even if you’re not thinking about buying the watch, I’d recommend you give the video on the product page a watch.

“OTO – which means ‘sound’ in Japanese, is the first watch design from Tokyoflash to feature a sound sensor. The integrated graphic equalizer display reacts to music and ambient sound creating a striking visual effect on your wrist. Customise to have time only, time and equalizer or equalizer only, to fit your environment. A digital LCD watch, the design has LED backlighting that lights up to the beat.”

Kisai OTO was originally a concept on the Tokyoflash Design Studio Blog submitted by Tokyoflash fan Sam Jerichow from Germany.

Available in black anodised aluminium with a blue, green, red or amber display, Kisai OTO includes time, date and alarm, is a USB rechargeable design and is available at the special release price of $99 (€73, £62) until Thursday February 14th at 4pm (Japan time).


Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.

We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
