Tokyoflash Japan shows off watch with words

Tokyoflash Japan shows off watch with words

Almost all of the watches that I see over on Tokyoflash are so confusing I don’t think I would ever be able to tell time on them without an instruction manual and even then it would be a challenge. A new watch concept is on the site now that is pretty cool and I can actually use it. The watch has a rectangular face and instead of numbers or arcane symbols, it just uses words.

Tokyoflash Traffic watch actually has some numbers

Tokyoflash's latest attempt to bamboozle our wrists is out, and the Traffic does at least have numbers from which you can attempt to decipher the time.  Like Frogger meets Tron, the watch has a smoked black plastic front with neon LED lights that show hours with the "city streets", five-minute blocks with the "subway" and single minutes with the "highway out of town".

Sheesh, I can only imagine how hard a time I would have actually using the Instant Trend watch. Some days I am baffled by a watch with no markings at all, the thing doesn’t even have numbers in its extra geeky mode.

Tokyoflash Kisai Escape C Bluetooth hands-free confuses

Tokyoflash Kisai Escape C Bluetooth hands-free confuses

Back in March 2009 bizarre watch manufacturer Tokyoflash asked for some consumer feedback on a potential range of Bluetooth gizmos; now we get to see the fruits of that research.  The Japanese company have unveiled the Tokyoflash Kisai Escape C, a neck-pendant Bluetooth hands-free kit with remote buttons for controlling media playback.
