Not sure how we missed this since Engadget
covered it at
the start of the month but Seiko has announced a new watch with an electrophoretic display (EPD) that will be available
in March 2006. The watch is known as the Spectrum
will have a high contrast display similar to a printed page and will not need a backlight. The watch is being developed
by E Ink and Seiko and will cost around $2,200 for the first watches. Only 500 of this limited edition will be made.
Cool technology, but like a lot of Seiko products, not so much in the looks department.
