"Music on a Wrist" MP3 Player
at CES 2000 in January, Casio's WMP-1V Wrist Audio Player
is the world's first wrist-wearable combination MP3 digital
audio player and timepiece. Equipped with an internal 32MB
Multi Media Card (MMC), the player provides up to 33 minutes
of CD quality sound or 44 minutes of near CD quality sound,
or 66 minutes of FM broadcast-level quality sound.
A USB interface specifically designed for the wrist worn configuration
provides rapid music downloads which average about 70 seconds
for a four-minute track. Full charge battery life provides
approximately 4 hours of continuous playback. Regular timepiece
features include normal timekeeping, alarm and stopwatch functions.
The image below shows a screen shot of the MP3 Jukebox software
that comes with the watch.
Now at the Casio
Panasonic is just waiting in the wings, planning to ship in
the second part of the year. Sony, of course, does not sit
on their "music clip" laurels and announced its
entry into the "wrist music" business as well.
