Tokyoflash Bpm Watch: How Many Beats Per Minute is That Song?

by Paul Strauss

My favorite watch company is at it once more. Tokyoflash has rolled out their latest creation, the BPM watch.

Tokyoflash BPM Watch

The digital timepiece is designed for aspiring musicians, DJs and anyone else who wants to know how many beats per minute are in a rhythm. Simply enter BPM mode, then tap away on the large metal plate on the front of the watch. The watch will then calculate the approximate beats per minute you’ve been tapping. In BPM mode, the watch also cranks out some goofy messages on its scrolling display, designed to inspire your jam, including the classic “the roof is on fire!”

While I’m not 100% sure on the real world application for the watch, it is pretty cool looking. It’s got a nice metal case with black accents and a black leather band. Plus, its bright white-on-black LCD display (backlit by a white LED) is much easier to see than most inverse displays I’ve seen. It’s even got a mini-flashlight mode to help DJs find their CDs in the dark (that is, if you’re still playing CDs — that’s so 1995!)

Best of all, the watch is just ¥7,900 (appx. $65 USD), so what’s not to like.
