The prototype LCD wristwatch TV shown by Japanese company NHJ at recent major electronics shows (CES and CEATAC) has been scheduled for release onto the Japanese market in April with a price of 20,000 yen (AUD$250).

The 4.5cm x 4.8cm x 1.8cm watch has a monochrome panel for displaying time and a 1.5-in. colour LCD panel for viewing television. It uses a stamp-sized TV tuner from Sony and at this point the biggest limiting factor is battery-life: operation time with its built-in battery is approximately two hours.

The headphone cable which is used in conjunction with the watch is also from Sony) and doubles as an antenna.
