If you’ve been looking to slap a little E-Ink on your wrist and didn’t want to go the Phosphor route, Seiko has the watch for you. The Seiko E-Ink watch is essentially a high-tech LCD watch using E-Ink as the display medium, thereby reducing battery drain.
The watch looks pretty complex but really it’s just your standard world-time quartz. The real value is in the screen simply because, like the Kindle, you can fit a hi-res image on a postage stamp piece of E-Ink which is more than you can say for a lot of LCD devices.
The bad news? The watch is ?84,000 on Amazon.jp (a little over $1,000) which is a little pricey for my blood. I also think it looks like my Uncle’s Casio LCD watch from 1995, so there’s that.
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.
