The decreasing size and increasing capacity of flash memory chips has enabled small portable memory devices, such as flash discs and key rings. Now a company has packaged flash memory into a wristwatch.

Cartagena Handels which sells watches under the Laks brand name, is offering three versions of the Laks Memory watch, each with a different memory capacity.

A short USB (Universal Serial Bus) cable is also built into the watch and can be tucked away in a groove and clip in the wristband when not in use. The cable is only a few centimetres long so users have to take off the watch to connect it to a personal computer or use a supplied one-metre extension cord.

The watch is available with 32Mbytes, 64Mbytes or 128Mbytes of memory and costs €42 (£29), €64 (£45) and €92 (£64) respectively.

The memory works with computers running Windows 98, ME, 2000 or XP, Mac OS 8.6 or higher and Linux 2.4 and can be ordered online at www.laks.com .
