Central Standard Timing announced the debut of the world’s thinnest watch, the CST-01. At 0.8 mm thickness, it is thinner than a credit card and is possible by incorporating E Ink’s electronic paper display.
The components are assembled into a 0.5 mm pocket that fits to a single piece of flexible stainless steel.
It has an embedded Thinergy Micro-Energy Cell that charges from an external dock within 10 minutes, runs for over a month and has a life of 15 years. This is really a one-time investment watch which lasts for 15 years with no hassles of changing batteries.
The watch is available online for $129 on Kickstarter and is expected to be available from Q2 in 2013.
