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.
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.
