Seiko Active-Matrix Epd Watches Offer 300dpi Display

I’ve always got my eyes peeled for unique watches for you guys, and this is definitely one of the cooler high-tech timepieces I’ve seen in a while.

Seiko Japan’s new SDGA001, SDGA002 and SDGA003 watches feature the world’s first active matrix electrophoretic display (EPD). This display technology is similar to what you might find in a high-end e-reader, capable of producing sharp, 300 dot-per-inch images with a 180-degree viewing angle.

Thanks to the ultra high-res display, the watches can display time in a variety of fonts and on-screen styles – my personal favorite being the deck of cards style:

The watches offer a 32-city world time capability, and can automatically be synchronized via radio signal. Each one comes in a sturdy stainless steel case, with a durable sapphire crystal. Battery power is recharged through an integral solar panel, offering about 30 months of display time on a full charge. There’s also LED illumination for viewing the time in darkened rooms.

Prices for the watches range from ¥94,500 to ¥105,000 (appx. $1127 to $1253 USD), so unless you’re loaded, you’re going to want to wait for the 2nd or 3rd generation versions before you start cashing your dollars for yen.
