    World's thinnest watch?

    Just saw this on Kickstarter-- claimed to be the thinnest watch ever: an E-ink digital screen that is only 0.80mm thick, driven by a Seiko Epson chip, which is then mounted on a metal wristband

    CST-01: The World's Thinnest Watch by Central Standard Timing — Kickstarter

    I can see this being popular with the younger, more fashionable people. Comes in black and in white. Here is the white. What you think? will it catch on?

    I rather like it, but I don't wear bracelet style watches. It certainly has an eye catching and simple to read font, and I really enjoy the readability of E-ink. It might catch on for the simple fact that it's so thin and light.

    For me, watch no, timepiece yes.

    I can see this catching on. If not this project, then certainly the technology behind it

    Rally cool.

    The downside is - my wife now wants one. It better be made available soon.

    Interesting. It appears to be powered by a lithium-polymer-style of layered "soft" battery. They get damaged when discharged too deep. They(if this is, indeed Li-Po) also have been known to short and burn VERY hot. I wish I could see the printing on the battery to be sure. There's a Russian smart phone on the way which has a big E-ink display that covers the rear of it's case.

    Interesting, but if I want thin, I'll go with the Piaget Altiplano.

    Looks like the bracelet they clamped on my wrist the last time I was in hospital.

    Too many watches, only two wrists and never enough time...

    Re: World's thinnest watch?

    I actually think that's really cool, and I'm very tempted at $100. My only concern (well, beyond the usual Kickstarter concerns) is that they don't seem to say what the expected band size is, and they're only "looking into" offering multiple sizes. If it fits gracefully on my slender-ish 6.5" wrist, I'd be interested, but if it has to wrap over itself to fit (or just doesn't have enough flex in the first place), then I don't want it. It would be nice if they'd listed the wrist size of the model.

    Still, I'm bookmarking the page. I think the white one is pretty slick.
