FMP3 Watch


Though it appears to be a normal watch visually, there are MP3 Player, Voice Recorder and Line-in Recording functions are built to it.

In addition to the above, MP3 music playing in this watch can be transmitted to FM radio by using FM transmitter function !

Usually as a watch, as a flash memory storage when connected to PC, as a wireless transmitter of MP3 music for car radio while in the car, as a music player when you are on the train, "FMP3 Watch" can be widely used from private to business.



MP3 files transfer is simple. Just connect the watch to PC with USB adapter included and it is ready.

No software or driver installation is necessary. Since flash memory in the watch is displayed as a removable drive, simply drag MP3 files and copy them to the drive, and the file transfer is completed.

FM transmitter is built-in to playback music on FM radio. Transmitting FM frequency can be switched between 88.1MHz, 88.5MHz, 3 of 88.9MHz, which enables fine tuning in any area.

Thanks to the latest FM transmitter IC, and cleverly laid out antenna built-in to watch band, noises are considerably reduced. You can enjoy music with clear sound quality.

Operations such as play, stop, next, back etc. can be easily done even while wearing the watch on your wrist. Enjoy music anywhere on your car radio, home FM radio, or mobile/portable FM radio !

Voice recording is possible even while working on PC as you see on this image. This feature can be widely used to record chatting, meeting or any sound or voice.

Voice or sound may be captured secretly since built-in microphone is hardly noticeable.

Continuous recording is possible as far the memory is available and battery lasts. Transfer data to PC for backup and editing !


Line-in recording is possible with connecting to playback device such as CD players etc. having audio line-out terminal, by using a cable attached

Audio recorded in the past in cassette tape or MD etc., can be stored as digital data without deterioration.

Recorded data is easily transferred to PC for backup or editing.
