Wearable TV watch

NHJ USA has launched a wearable TV ‘watch’. Sporting a TFT LCD display screen (280×220 pixels) and built in Sony TV tuner, it weighs just 55g.

The TV, which uses its accompanying stereo earphones as the TV’s antenna, allows the wearer to view channels VHF 1-12 and UHF 13-62.

The ‘VTV-101’, as the product is called, features a Li-Ion rechargeable battery and comes with a docking bay charger that can be used without removing the batteries from the case. This allows the TV watch to have 2.5-3 hours playing time.

The TV watch will be available first from the catalogue house Hammacher Schlemmer from the middle of this month.

It is expected to retail for around $199.99.
