Looks can be deceiving. Case in point: the new Seiko. While it looks like a nice enough digital watch, it’s actually rocking some fly-me-to-the-moon tech under the surface. Tech so new and serious the company had to go out and invent a name for it.

The centrepiece of the whole thing is the ‘Seiko Active Matrix EPD’. In plain English, it means the watch display is comprised of next generation electronic paper, AKA, e-ink. It’s the same stuff they use on the Amazon Kindle and it makes for a much clearer display (300dpi) than traditional digital watches.

Not impressed? Okay, well the watch uses radio signals to sync itself to ‘official nuclear time’, it runs on an invisible, rechargeable solar cell (hidden in the face) that can keep going for 30 months in total darkness, it knows what time it is in 32 cities, it’s all backlit, AND it has a built in alarm.

Oh yeah, it also looks nice in a retro-80s sort of way. Launching before the end of the year, the Seiko Active Matrix EPD will set you back $1000.

Um, you had me at official nuclear time. Doesn't it only loose accuracy of 1 second every 100 years of something ridiculous?
