    Question USB Watch

    Has Casio ever made a usb watch? It seems that all the ones I can find are mechanical and not digital which seems kind of oxymoronish.

    You mean with flash memory? I don't think so.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    With flash memory dropping in price this things gonna make you look as cool as a cactus when you wear it in 3 years.

    You: "my watch holds 64GB of data."
    Someone else: "I used to have one of those, I recycled it when I threw away some old 1.44MB floppies I found in the garage."

    (not trying to be mean, I'm just half asleep now.)

    There was a Timex Ironman watch several years ago that came with a USB cable. Not sure of exactly what the functionality was supposed to be.

    I think you mean the datalink. Datalink was a databank watch where you entered your info into the computer then synced it to your watch.

    It came out in 1995 and what you would do is hold it against the CRT screen and the data would be sent to the watch with the little light sensor at the top of the watch. For LCD screens Timex sold an accessory that plugged into your serial port, that accessory was probably updated to USB.

    You could NOT send data from the watch back to the computer.

    The Timex USB Datalink is still shown on Amazon, even though it's listed as unavailable. USB cable plugs directly into the watch as shown.

    The USB Ironman Datalink was the second generation Datalink. I don't think they're being made anymore. Like a Blackberry or a Palm, it linked to your computer with a USB cable. The idea, as with the first generation Datalink (which did indeed work on optical scanning technology as an earlier poster noted), was to be able to sync certain organizer data (phone numbers, calendar entries, etc.) with your watch and have that data literally on your wrist.

    I bought one of those optical datalink watches back then. It was pretty cool for that era. I worked at a software company called Borland International then in their R&D department and it was fun because it had a pretty serious geek appeal.

    I still have it, but the battery is long since kaput.
