Greetings,

Just wanting to know if there's anywhere in NZ that stocks watches that play MP3's.

I really want it to be a watch so its inconspicuous IYKWIM. Ive got a 256MB Thumbdrive, but its no use at a party when you're prompted for music on-the-spot ;-)

64MB would do if I had to, but ideally I want a minimum of 128mb, 256mb would be ideal!

Cheers


Chill.

Thanks Metla, looks like what Im after.

I searched Pricespy and Trademe. There were a few on Trademe, but I'd rather not go second-hand.

WTF:
I had Google'd and had similar results. They werent overly helpful.

Does anybody know of any others?

Thanks


Chill.

You could try http://www.compgeeks.com

They ship to NZ and stock the Timex TMX2 watch. I have purchased one and received it in the mail just fine.

It wpuld look weird if you have head fones sticking out of your watch - what if you yanked your habd down for some reason - your ear pones will be pulled out

how many mp3's could you fit on a 256mb thumbdrive?

The average size of my MP3's is 5.3MB @ 192kbps
256MB / 5.3 = 48 mp3s @ 192kbps

Im thinking 20 would suffice for my purposes so I think I'll go for a 128mb drive :-)
