Konect Tokyo USB Concept Watch

Design submitted by Olivier from France.

Olivier says: “I used to lose my USB key often so I came up with the idea to attach the USB key to my watch. Basically, the features are identical as the Escape C watch (skype, MP3 and Bluetooth) with the possibility to use bluetooth headphones and the USB key to store music or any computer data.

I wanted a very futuristic design like you could find in the next big Sci-Fi movie. Have a look at the images below to see how the time can be read. I think this watch design would be ideal for geeks, Sci-fi fan, modern people in general. The shape is unusual and I think it would be the first USB key watch.”

  1. Awesome!
    def’ need a wider band for the dudes.
    But the concept is cool!

    How many gb’s would the Flash drive be? 16gb? 32gb? 64gb?
    could it work with other usb’s?

  2. Definitely an interesting concept – would be worried about pricing though. Either it uses a very small rechargeable battery – i.e. expensive up front, or it will us a small button battery i.e. expensive over the long run. Other than that, I too would like to see a beefier wrist strap. Sign me up if they start production on this.

  3. I love this design and would like to buy it. My main concern about how it is presented is that Tokyo flash watches tend to be on the higher side of expensive. And adding the USB to this device I can see driving up the price.

    I see a lot of people are hung up on the size of the flash drive. I would think that it would be offered in a variety of sizes to meet different price points so they can be affordable up to storage rich.

    My main question is how is it powered? I know bluetooth can be a power beast and even the new bluetooth spec can be over a period of time. But in either case I don’t see much room for batteries?

  6. This is the watch of the future. In a world where everyone wants their gadgets to have 3+ features before they will pony up the cash for it; this watch design would sell like hotcakes. As for the individual components, the usb key would be worth it even if it had as low as 8gb memory, for there is no need to store movie files which take up most of the space on the everyday media player users (who only use 8-16gb on average). The time-keeping aspect is ingenious and relatively simple to get used to. The Bluetooth is a must, for the design would not work with wired headphones. The skype feature would be the most difficult to pull off, but still possible. Some would suggest the microphone be attached to one of the ear pieces, but that would drain the battery in the ear pieces faster. The buttons for the next/prev. track and play/stop would only be a problem if you had large fingers, but otherwise not a problem, as they look easy to use and distinguish from each other. It costs about $10 for an 8gb flash drive, $45 for a decent pair of bluetooth ear pieces (I have seen them at $35-$120 on average recently), the mp3-playing components would be about $40 at max, the watch’s parts would be less than $20 most likely, as the design is unique, and the Skype-functionality is a mystery, so I have no way to gauge the price of that component. I would buy it if it’s price range was $100-$150 without a second thought. The overall design is sleek and would appeal to both sexes. IMHO, this watch design is the peak of wearable-gadget awesomeness! It would beat out the current iPod nano on a watchband in days, despite the nano’s ability to play video.

    • Wow Ice, what a big and exhaustive comment! thx:)
      Well the technology is already there as Tokyoflash made this nice watch called Escape C so I think they have a idea about the price at least for the components…

  10. I would like to see smaller in-ear headphones. I don’t like the fact that the ear pieces are so prominent.

  11. This watch looks awesome!

    As some people stated earlier, there is not much room for Battery-Power.
    Maybe building in bigger batterys won’t affect your Design, if you chose to use micro sd-cards instead of an usb-stick.
    Also I think this watch has too much techy stuff on it (skype? why?).

    I really like your Design, but you should consider, leaving features out to improve battery-durability.

  14. I would buy one. I agree that the band is awful. It’s obviously a bit of an obnoxious watch, putting a tiny little band on there is not a good idea.

  16. Fascinating render… but too many functions. I just like a wristwatch. 5 * for render and presentation, 2 * for the watch, total: 3 *. Sorry Oliver.

  17. This is an amazing looking piece of equipment…I want one yesterday!
    I like the idea of the wider strap for men, though I like the gun metal look, I wouldn’t want a huge black lump of metal on my wrist…the sci-fi look you have here is excellent.

    so it will have a bluetooth headset, does this get carried seperately? or is it going to be incorporated into the watch?

    also the question of battery has come up… if you’re going to increase the wrist strap size, would you be able to incorporate some kind of rechargable battery into this, and maybe have some sort of dock similar to an ipod dock for charging? so ideally I could take it off at night, and put it on my dresser to charge it while I slept….could be a simple male usb connection to charge it with so the dock could be a basic one just for charging.. (though obviously in keeping with the sci-fi look lol)

    Then down to timeline and overall price.

    so whats the timeline on this? yes it’s just a concept right now,…and a damn good one, but how long to go from here to production? are you definitely going into production even?

    I know price is dictated by cost of part and manufacturer as well as then paying for whatever brand it is built and shipped by, I assume TokyoFlash are going to be your manufacturers. So what is the overall conceived price of what it will initially go on sale for? obviously the concept has a ballmark figure for this pre production..

    ultimately I want one, like yesterday!!!
    excellent design, I really do hope it’s a reality soon!

    • The headset is carried separately. I tried to incorporated it with the watch in my early designs but I wasn’t sastisfied with the result.
      Regarding the questions of production, it’s Tokyoflash to answer you;)

  20. Really awesome idea and i would buy it. But as i am a lefty i’m comfortable wearing my watches on my right wrist. And if i’d do so with your concept watch, i think i had trouble with my hand. So i hope you considered a left and right hand version.

  21. I would love to own this. The only problem I see (very minor) is the watch pressing against the arm when flexing up and down at the wrist. But I would be willing to put up with that for a very cool watch.
