You know those nifty little MP3 players that download music from the internet and store it in a solid state? Well this is one of those Except it's better because the whole thing has been neatly shoehorned into a chunky wristwatch that weighs in at a mere 70 grammes. It comes complete with headphones and can store just over half an hour of music - tracks take about 20 seconds to download from the web to the watch. Sure, it's a bit of a gimmick, but, as gimmicks go it's a pretty cool one.

What's the competition?

There are numerous MP3 players on the market, all of which offer something exciting - long play times, sound quality, etc - but this is the only one you can wear on your wrist.

When can I get it?

It won't be available in the shops here until the end of April. But you can buy it on Casio's web site now, for pounds 279.99
