Keeping regular backups of important files is a big deal. And unless you’re lazy, it’s not a problem. Extra storage is cheap and cloud storage isn’t all that expensive, either. Plus, you can backup stuff to your phone, to your iPod and to one of a dozen other gadgets you own with built-in storage. You can now add your watch to that list with the Tokyoflash Kisai Upload.
The latest in the Japanese brand’s line of unorthodox timepieces, the watch, of course, features an unconventional digital time display. Surprisingly, it’s not that difficult to decipher compared to some of their previous creations. Instead, all you need to do is tilt the display at a slight angle (between 30 to 45 degrees) and the time should show up in plain sight.
The time display, of course, isn’t the biggest selling point here. Instead, the Tokyoflash Kisai Upload’s secret weapon is the built-in microSD slot that you can load up with any extra storage you need (it comes with a 2GB card by default). To access the storage, simply hook the watch up via USB (which also charges it), then transfer your Powerpoint presentations, portable apps and dirty pictures at will.
The rest of the watch is standard Tokyoflash. You get brushed stainless steel construction, an always-on display (with five background color options), LED backlighting, 3 to 4 months of runtime on a full charge, water resistance (3ATM) and the usual digital watch options (time, date, alarm).
The Tokyoflash Kisai Upload is available now, priced at $149.
