Product Description

E Ink Digital Hour Clock Watch with Black Leather Band

Phosphor Digital Hour


Where standard LCD displays are a muddy, low contrast grey, E Ink technology creates a crisp and high contrast black and white image. Its microcapsule technology also offers a much finer resolution graphic display and allows for smooth and crisp characters. Phosphor’s E Ink Curved Digital line offers a revolutionary new spin on the traditional digital watch. The digital display utilizes the revolutionary E Ink electronic paper display featuring its paper-like, high contrast readability that is sure to be noticed by others around you. A standard numeric digital display in one mode, a graphic hour clock display in another, and the ability to switch between white-on-black to black-on-white time display give this digital watch a style of its own.

Features:

:: Case width: 38mm
:: Overall case thickness: 12.5mm
:: Water resistance: 5 ATM - 50m
:: Display: 12-hour only
:: Alarm: Built-in alarm

E Ink Technology

 

Electronic ink is a proprietary material that is processed into a film for integration into electronic displays, and used in many popular ebooks today. Revolutionary in concept, electronic ink is a fusion of chemistry, physics and electronics to create millions of tiny microcapsules about the diameter of a human hair. Each microcapsule contains positively charged white particles and negatively charged black particles suspended in a clear fluid that migrates with the application of an electric field to produce an ink-on-paper appearance.

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.

    It's simple, clean and bold.

    May be hard to see in a very dark situations, so, a front lighting would help if it was implemented in the watch.

    The watch is really cool looking.

    I had to debate how to rate this watch for a couple days. I decided to break it down Pros and Cons style -
    PROS-
    1- The innovative e-ink technology gives this watch a style and look not seen outside of e-readers. If you're looking for a conversation starter, this is probably a good choice.
    2- Large display. Knowing the time is easy with the massive display that the Phosphor's have.
    3-The hybrid analog/digital mash up display (shown in the picture) is cool to look at.
    4- The leather band. This is a pro and a con for me. The pro? It is very comfortable to wear and just feels right on my wrist.

    CONS-
    1- The curved screen or face of the watch makes it VERY easy to scratch and ding-up. I found myself always trying to protect it from the nearby wall or countertop, so as not to damage it. This is a problem I never face with my G-Shock. (Also, the DH-02 is very susceptible to fingerprints on the screen.)
    2- As noted in a number of reviews, the lack of a backlit display. I'm not sure if this is indicative of the e-ink technology (as the Nook and Kindle both lack backlit displays), but not having a light on your watch nowadays is kind of tough to get past.
    3- The leather band. The con? The orange coloring. I thought I could get past this, but I can't. It's definitely an eye-catcher, but to me, the orange looks cheap. This con can easily be avoided by purchasing the steel or rubber band.
    4- Lack of functions. If you want a really simple watch, the Phosphor DH-02 is fine, but it is really bare bones. All you get is time, an alarm and the date. You have to push a button simply to see the date if you are on the main watch screen. I like to be able to see the date/time just at a glance.
    4.5- I am listing the price as a half point. Why?

    This was the first time I bought a time piece on-line. I was pretty anxious because I've been disappointed many time before when I finally get to see the watch live... there's nothing better than trying it on your own wrist to know it's a watch for you. This time around there were no stores that carried Phosphor watches in town, so I took the leap of faith...

    Beautiful watch! I feared it was going to be huge, particularly after noticing the double lock band, but it's not so at all.

    I agree with a reviewer elsewhere who said he thought he had gotten the prop watch with the sticker on the dial... the sharpness is outstanding and it's a relief to see the minute change.

    The band is very soft and pliable and therefore very comfortable. The orange accent goes along perfectly with the watch.

    All in all, 4 screens: time x2 ("analog" and digital), date and alarm. All of those black on white or the opposite (so I guess 8 screens).

    There's a beep with every push of the buttons and every hour on the dot which can be turned on and off easily.

    The screen blinks for a fraction of a second every 15 mins as screen-saver given the way E-ink works.

    In summary, this is a beautiful watch with a very different look that I highly recommend. Prices could be better, but then again what prices couldn't!

    My first time to ever return a product from Amazon. But the display was defective. I see others have made comments about pixels not working, I think its more serious then just a bad pixel. More like dozens of pixels. I also found the watch box poorly packaged and it was clearly able to bounce around during shipping. Strange also no paper work enclosed too. Usually something is enclosed for watches of a lessor price. Its a cheap watch in my opinion and not worth the price.

    BTW, the reference to e-ink in the watch made me consider that the display would be similar to that of a Kindle. The Kindle has a great sharp display. This watch display does not resemble anything similar to the readout/display of a Kindle. Hope this reviews saves others some time.

    I usually wear a Casio F-91w or F-105. You know the one. Simple, low profile, nerdy-but-socially-acceptable. A quick glance gives me the time (24 hr clock) and the date, a push of a button gives me a stopwatch or a backlight. The battery lasts years and it's functionally perfect.

    This, however, is not a review for the casio watch. I bought the Phosphor watch because I wanted something a bit more formal, flashy, and unique. I love the orange accent on the band, and the E-ink screen is a cool talking point. The other reviews do a good job of highlighting the cons -- no backlight, no 24-hour clock, have to push a button to see the date, prone to scratches, etc. I don't wear the watch much now, just when I go out on the weekend sometimes, but usually I stick to the Casio.

    Anyway, something the reviews don't mention is the pins that attach the straps to the watch-face are crappy. The first one bent while putting on a backpack, sending the watch flying onto the concrete and leaving a nice scratch. The second one bent while moving laundry from the washer to the dryer. I'm not exactly scaling Everest with this thing. None of the documentation has it, and it took me a lot of trial and error to figure it out, but you need a 20mm watch pin. TheseTwo Stainless Steel Watchband Spring Bar Pins For Attaching Watch Band To Watches 20 mm are the ones I bought and they seem much more sturdy than the stock ones. If you buy the watch, pick these up as well and change them out. It'll save you some heartbreak down the line.
