Not much is known about these USB flash drives other than they are made by Lenovo, and have a similar design on them as the Lenovo Olympic laptops. Oh, and they look dumb, and cheap, and might contain lead, just kidding about that last one, sort of.
The laptops looked good, the “Cloud of Promise” as they call the swirly design was ingenious, and like I said, on the red-lidded laptop, it looked great. But this flash drive looks like it was made from a Coke can, so they should have stopped with the laptops.

It connects via USB, and compared to some of the other USB watches I have seen, this one actually has some class to it. It’s still kind of ugly with that large blank space at the bottom of the face, but it’s a step in the right direction.
I don’t know if the USB cable is built in, or if there is a mini USB female port in the side of the watch where a cable would connect the watch to your PC. Regardless, I like the idea of combining flash storage with other objects of use, just carrying a flash drive, its easy to lose, but put that flash drive on your wrist and make it both a fashion accessory and a functional time-telling device, and you are far less likely to forget or lose it.
Flash drives have been doused in Swarvoski crystals, hidden in chapstick tubes and turned into a humping dog, yet I have seen few that seem as soft and cozy as these two. Generally I'm not that into cool flash drives, but with these are so completely different than the others I have seen that I would love to own them both.
