FES Watch Has an E-ink Screen and E-ink Band

 |  |  |  November 27, 2014


I went for years without wearing a wristwatch. I could just pull my smartphone out of my pocket and see what time it was. The larger my smartphones became, the more of a pain they were to pull out of my pocket, particularly when driving or sitting down, so I went back to a watch. I prefer the Pebble smartwatch these days, and one of the things I like about it is the e-ink screen that lets me choose what face to display.

A new E-ink watch has turned up in Japan seeking funding that has no smart features like my Pebble, but it is still one of the coolest watches I have seen. The watch is called the FES Watch and it has an E-ink display for the watch face and individual E-Ink displays for the upper and lower sections of the watchband.

That means you can change not only the display, but the patterns on the band to one of 24 different designs. That is very cool indeed. The watch is up for a second round of funding on Makuake, which is sort of a Japanese Kickstarter. Sadly, you can only pledge and buy the watch if you live in Japan. Any Japanese friends have an extra $167 lying around and need my address?
