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. Awsome concept! Really do love this and looking to buy a multi-function watch and this is by far the best I’ve seen. My only qualm is implementation. Time reading looks a little too long winded. And I assume the audio plays via bluetooth? My experience with BT headsets and audio hasn’t been great as quality is poor and isn’t both ears. Are there BT headphones available/compatible with this? Also vibrate for calls would be good. Good job and a very inspired design.

  3. Great concept and idea

    but confused as to what the headset is. Does this connect to the watch as well (like usb drive)
    I think that would be a great idea…a way to store the headset when not in use.
    And would love to see the watch be able to recharge the headset…that would be amazing.

    love the look and concept

    I would buy this!

    price not so much an issue…for this one of a kind piece

  8. I think that electronics will not fit in to the watch. Otherwise, I don’t like this watch. The mp3 and bluetooth too much! To listen to music CD or Minidisc, Quality in music, quality in watch! This blog is only about the watches!!!

    1. I don’t understand your point guy, this watch has many comments because it’s an amazing design, I couldn’t say the same for most of the other watches on this blog!

      1. You really seem to not understand, Designer (see? Using the blog name isn’t that hard. More respect on here please, guy). I didn’t question the quality of this watch, so I also didn’t complain about the amount of comments. I tell you my point. I just wonder that people sign in to this blog, leave their unspecific admiration and then disappear in the dark again and don’t even seem to notice the other watches. I think the blog could use more voices from others, they are very welcome, good or bad, as long as they are specific/constructive/honest. What is not needed is an isolated watch with isolated comments. If you think about it, you sure understand that.

  10. I understand your point Aphosno but what you don’t know is maybe most or a part of this guys visited the other watches and didn’t feel any interest in it. This is probably for the same reason this watch has been published on Engadget and Gizmodo and not the other watches. This watch brings a new concept and not only a funny way to read the time.

    1. Well that’s what I meant with isolated. When there is no interest in the rest, then this is the wrong place for the watch maybe. I could post a digital watch in a blog of analog watches and all people who like digital watches suddenly come and could say “analog watches suck, digital watches are easier to read, these analog watches have never been seen in mainstream digital magazine” but those people ignore the intial idea of an analog watch and just concentrate on that misplaced digital watch. Tokyoflash watches are simply (!) an interesitng way to read the time normally, a reinterpretation of “the wristwatch” and fashion accessories, rarely a multifunctional gadget in four parts.

      1. I would say it’s a wrong place when a watch gets 0 comments, this one got 150 comments and has got the features of the Escape C which you can buy on this website. Or maybe this is the wrong place for the Escape C too.

      2. Yes there is always an exception. I cleverly used the words “maybe” and “rarely” to allow the escape c in my argument. This single gadget does not mean I’m totally wrong. I already questioned the appearance of people who only rate this watch and leave, be it 10 or 1000, the amount is irrelevant.

  11. I disagree with making the bracelet larger as some have mentioned here. Quite honestly from what I can see this is already a large design. The last thing this needs is to look like some futuristic spartan gauntlet. As it sits it will easily become an everyday wearer type of design and thats the true intent for any mainstream device. Which from what I can disseminate is your intent.
    However I’m not a fan of the earpieces with the bright blue rings. Possibly a more subdued indicator so that those of us whom have to attend
    Tedious corporate functions can escape with out drawing attention to our persons.
    Lastly I’m curious about battery life with such a small design. Imho if it can’t last 8-10 hours then its a possible failure.
    But short of making it into some kinda larger gauntlet type design I’m definitely in for one or more. Great design!

    1. Thx Mrblack. It’s was interesting for me to know than some guys consider than the bracelet is not enough large for a man. Although I agree with you, It’s something I’m gonna consider for my next design.

  13. Hey Olivier,
    What about production? This is here for about a month now and I didn’t saw Tokyoflash saying nothing. =D

    I really wanna one of those.

    1. Hi Tiago,
      This watch is probably the most commented from different people on this blog but yes, I didn’t get any single feedback from Tokyoflash so I guess they are not interested. But this watch has been seen by some other companies so you never know what can happen in the future;)

      1. Be patient :) There is quite an amount of possible watches already in the blog, which haven’t been announced for production yet, and those are up to 8 months old. I think Tokyoflash will keep a certain order, if they consider to pick one. They sometimes comment in the blog, but they don’t make clear statements. They can do so, if they can definitely tell, a watch can be made. Until that, it is a hard way wich takes at least time (don’t know about the costs for testing technologies).

        Besides what I experienced here so far, I believe the team at Tokyoflash have some other issues to handle right now. So yeah, let’s see what the future brings.
