Heartbeat LED Watch Performs Cpr on Itself

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  January 15, 2009


This funky modern watch out of Japan tells time not with hands or numbers, but with a tiny little electrocardiogram machine that sits on your wrist.

OK, the EIN Cyber Heartbeat LED watch doesn’t actually tell you if your heart is still beating, but its LED graphical display is styled to look like a mini heart monitor. From the looks of these display instructions, though, don’t ask me to tell you what time it is. I’ve got a better chance of telling you if you’re in sinus rhythm or VTAC. Push an amp of epi now! (Yeah, I watch ER, what of it?)

Unlike other LED watches which usually remain pitch black until a button is pressed, the display on the Heartbeat can be left on all the time if you so choose. That’s because the watch provides its own built in resuscitation capability. Just plug the watch into your computer’s USB port, and the Heartbeat will recharge in an hour or two. A single charge should give you about 24 hours of constant illumination. Of course, if you prefer to only see the time on-demand, you’ll get several months on a single charge.

The Heartbeat is available in both black and brushed stainless versions, with a choice of either a green or red LED display.

So far, I haven’t found a retailer for the Heartbeat outside of Japan, but if you’re willing to brush up on your little Katakana, you can find them at Seahope for ¥25,200 (appx. $290 USD).
