The Japanese company Seiko will release a limited edition of 500 units of their Spectrum SVRD001, the first watch in the world that uses flexible e-paper or Electrophoretic Display (EPD). The design of the watch is similar to a bracelet and the body is made of stainless steel and a black & white e-paper. The price of one of these 500 units is an extremely affordable 1900 EUR. It will weigh 134g and will be 37mm thick. It will be available worldwide in January 2006.
This may be one of the first products to come to paper that uses the e-ink technology. E-ink promises to have a high contrast surface, with a minimal power consumption. It uses electrostatically charged balls as the basis for its display.
