check out my NEW watch!!!!

I got this nifty watch on eBay. It is made by a company called Xonix but the neat thing about it is that it holds 128 Mb of memory. It has a built-in USB connector and is perfect for keeping files or pics in. I am a Corrections Deputy here for the county and I use it for my timesheets, reports I have to write etc. It is the same thing as a thumbdrive except it doubles as a watch. They even have some that have up to 1Gb of memory. They have 128Mb ones that will play MP3's.

Mine will only store data but the kicker was it only cost me $20. That's right, $20.

A friend of mine had one like that and it also doubled as a text messaging device. He needed to stay in touch with his wife at all times for a while and thats how they did it. Pretty cool.

Cool watch... how'd you get one for $20? Got lucky on an auction I guess.
They go for more money usually, don't they?

There are quite a few different sellers. Sorry to say but probably they are ALL MADE IN CHINA.

The eBay seller I bought it off of had more of them for only $20 ($10shipping also = $30). His userdID was ccop154, I believe (email is cjarvis@hotmail.com).

I am really happy with it. The only thing I wish is that Casio would come out with one in their G-shock series. I like their watch cuz it is waterproof and also digital. Much easier to just look at the numbers versus the hands.

I'm sure you'll see more and more people with these kinda' watches. Be the first one on your block to have one! (I have NO connection to this or any other seller, whatsoever).

UPDATE: I just did an eBay search for his userID and he had a bunch for auction starting at only $15. He ended up having no bids on the auction. Send him an email and he may sell you one for only $15.

Well, you gotta use your brains, I mean, those USB ports are pretty low voltage too, but nonetheless, try to keep it dry!

I think the plug snaps into place, so it is watertight when on the go.....

I hafta get used to wearing the new watch. Couple of times now I forgot that I had it on and went into the shower with it. Luckily I hadnt really been in there that long before I realized it.
