The watch looks cool, but who wants a portable player with such short battery life? I bet as the battery gets older the player starts becoming more and more useless.

A great idea, but just another product that's before its time.

most of the emails I get about MP3 players usually revolve around battery life, music quality, and "value". I think the Casio watch is cool, but as far as "value" goes, I think there are many other MP3 portables that go beyond it.

However, I think that Casio has done an amazing job with the watch, and I think they can only improve here on out.

My mum won one of these in a competition, so my family think it's great for nothing (but then again what isn't?)
As for paying cash for it, I wouldn't pay as much as the RRP, I'd wait until it got a bit lower if I was a cyclist or a jogger.
It's a fairly good watch (and let's not forget, this is all inside a watch!), so in that respect it's great, and it's good at doing what it sets out to do: a nice alternative for joggers and cyclists etc.

For anyone owning this old gem and want it working, I have software that makes it possible to use it on 2015 and beyond here: https://github.com/fatso83/casio-wmp1

14 years and back.. Biggest bump in the history of Neoseeker?

Anyways, the watch looks cool. Would've been cool back in 2001. Surprised the review didn't mention the memory size, but how big could it have been then, anyway?

Thanks for the blast from the past, carlerik!

haha, good to hear. anyway, from time to time, some weirdo on the internet (like me) suddenly wants to get ancient tech running, and then it's good to know that it is possible.

open source ftw
