CES 2013 Showcases World's Thinnest Watch

Every nook and cranny of CES spells innovation. True to this is the showcasing of the thinnest watch in the world at the E Ink stand. When E Ink and Central Standard Timing joined hands together, CST-01 was the result.

Central Standard Timing announced CTS-01 as the thinnest watch in the world with only 0.8 mm thickness. Made possible by the innovative electronic paper display of E Ink, CST-01 is even thinner than a credit card.

The watch is made of flexible components which have been assembled into a pocket that is 0.5 mm thick which then fits onto a flexible stainless steel piece. The watch is extremely light to wear and weighs less than 12g.

CST-01 looks just like a bracelet or bangle and has been making waves over at Kickstarter where it has already garnered $172,329 of the targeted $200,000 goal, in a few days' time. For almost a year, the watch had been in the prototype phase.

Embedded in the watch is a Thinergy Micro-energy Cell which charges the watch from the external dock in a matter of 10 minutes. Time on the watch is also set with the help of this external dock. After one charging, it will run continuously for a month.

It can be charged upto 100,000 times which gives it a life of 15 years. This essentially makes it a watch that will last for years without even needing a change of battery.

Preorders for the watch are available on Kickstarter for $129 (Rs. 7063 approx.). The watch is expected to be shipped sometime in the second quarter of 2013.
