This unique e-paper watch will only be available on the Japanese market in limited numbers for the time being.

The FES Watch is a futuristic e-paper watch that has been developed by a Sony subsidiary and appeared online about a year ago on a Japanese crowdfunding website. In the meantime, it looks like this wearable managed to become ready to hit the market, although only in limited numbers.

In the near future, the FES Watch will only go on sale in two retail venues. First, it will be available starting this Saturday in the MoMA Design Store on Omotesando. At least, the boutique department store that Apple used for the Apple Watch launch, namely Isetan in Shinjuku, will offer the e-paper time piece starting December 1st. This accessory can also be acquired from the MoMA online store since yesterday.

The FES Watch offers a wide range of combinations for the dial and belt, so it can easily match the clothes of its wearer. Sony plans to gradually expand the availability of this wearable, but no timeframe has been given. Its price in Japan, including taxes, is around $242 USD.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
