TV on your wrist: the V@mp VTV-101 TV watch
NHJ USA launched the V@mp 'VTV-101', a wearable TV watch. This very small portable TV weighs only 55g, has a TFT LCD display screen (280x220 pixels) and built in Sony TV tuner. The TV tuner allows the wearer to view channels VHF 1-12 and UHF 13-62, and uses the accompanying stereo earphones to function as the TV's antenna.

The 'VTV-101' features a Li-Ion rechargeable battery so that it can be kept powered up easily, and also comes with a docking bay charger which can be used without removing the batteries from the case. This allows the TV watch to have 2.5-3 hours playback time.

An added feature of the VTV-101 is an internal PLL synthesizer tuner which can be set to either manual or automatic. On top of all of these exciting features, it also comes with a neck strap so that the wearer can alternate wearing it on their wrist or around their neck for the wearers own convenience.

The V@mp 'VTV-101' TV watch will be available from the catalogue of Hammacher Schlemmer from the middle of May, and is expected to retail for around US$199.99.
