How E ink Works:

Electronic ink is a proprietary material that is processed into a film for integration into electronic displays. Revolutionary in concept, electronic ink is a fusion of chemistry, physics and electronics to create this new material. The principal components of electronic ink are millions of tiny microcapsules, about the diameter of a human hair. In one incarnation, each microcapsule contains positively charged white particles and negatively charged black particles suspended in a clear fluid. When a positive electric field is applied, the white particles move to the top of the microcapsule where they become visible to the user. This makes the surface appear white at that spot. At the same time, an opposite electric field pulls the black particles to the bottom of the microcapsules where they are hidden. By reversing this process, the black particles appear at the top of the capsule, which now makes the surface appear dark at that spot.

To form an E Ink electronic display, the ink is printed onto a sheet of plastic film that is laminated to a layer of circuitry. The circuitry forms a pattern of pixels that can then be controlled by a display driver. These microcapsules are suspended in a liquid “carrier medium” allowing them to be printed using existing screen printing processes onto virtually any surface, including glass, plastic, fabric and even paper. Ultimately electronic ink will permit most any surface to become a display, bringing information out of the confines of traditional devices and into the world around us.

What WeDoTech Say:

The Phosphor calendar watch is my new best friend. It’s an eye catcher and if you are someone like me who loves to grab the attention of those passers by this is definately a watch for you. Yes, its got a big display and yes its a heavy mofo but believe you me its a stylish brand with a lot to boast about.

Setting up the time and date was easy, simply following the instructions I was able to set the watch up within a couple of minutes and bammm away I went to show off my newest piece of technology.

Simply pressing the bottom right button you can switch between the Calander and Time. You can also have a positive or negative display with this what I mean is you can have a black screen with white writing or a white screen with black writing.

I have only 1 criticism, this is when it is 12 o’clock the 1 in the number 12 becomes really small as though the watch finds it difficult to allow 2 full sized characters on one line.

There are 3 different styles of this watch. 1 with a leather strap, 1 with a Polyuethane strap and another with a stainless steel band. These range in price from £125 to £170 depending on the style with the stainless steel band being the most expensive.

I love this watch, you can show it off at any occasion, in the pub, at work or even in bed with a potential partner. its stylish, eye catching and a watch that gives the impression that you have alot of money.

I give this watch an 4.2 out of 5. What do you think?
