New E-ink Watch from Seiko

Seiko announced their second E-ink watch Thursday. The watch has a new display system that is just as legible as the original, but allows for a much richer range of imagery and data to be displayed on the watch dial. The original watch had a segmented display (much like an ordinary watch). This watch replaced that display with an E-ink screen about an inch across. The new screen has 80,000 pixels, which gives it 300 dpi.

I'm looking forward to when this watch gets hacked. This is a real screen, not your ordinary watch display. There's a near infinite number of ways you can show the time and date.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
