My Wrist, It's Blinky: Tokyoflash's Latest Flash

December 16, 2008


What would a week on Geekologie be without another watch from Tokyoflash? A hot day in heaven, that's for sure. Anyway, the Tokyoflash Waku ($130) is the latest from the wily watchateers.

Waku's wrist band, uniquely positioned between the frame and LEDs, is designed like a belt and features rows of punched holes which continue through the frame to expose the bright lights beneath.

Touch Waku's button and a simple animation sparkles before the time is presented in three easy-to-read steps. Hours are shown first, one LED indicates each hour 1-12. Groups of 15 minutes are next, three LEDs indicate 15, 30 and 45 minutes past the hour. Finally single minutes are presented, fourteen LEDs indicating minutes 1-14. Count the LEDs in columns of 5 and reading Waku becomes really easy!

The watch comes in three different bands: brown leather, black croc-effect, and natural fur, and each is available with either single or multi-colored LEDs. That's six different options! And again, no, I don't get paid for posting these. It's called relations, folks, and I have them. Mostly with women, but sometimes (and I'm thinking last year's holiday party here) with Joel from HR dressed up as Santa.
