TV Watch

TV Watch The microprocessors and displays used to make quartz watches enabled the creation of a seemingly endless variety of features never before available on a wristwatch. Even a miniature tv ended up on a wristwatch when Seiko introduced one in the fall of 1983.

Receiver The first Seiko TV watch has a liquid crystal video display that shows blue pictures on a light gray background. It receives UHF and VHF TV channels and FM radio. The watch uses a regular watch battery for the time, chronograph, alarm and calendar functions. A separate pack holds the TV receiver with two AA batteries for the liquid crystal TV display and audio headphones.
