The Wi-Fi Detecting Watch doesnt let you actually surf the web, but the timepiece will at least warn you when youre in a Wi-Fi zone and save you the bother of, say, firing up your laptop only to find that there are no networks within range.

Although the watch may look like one of Casios designs from late 1980s, the Wi-Fi watch has the added benefit of a chronograph, countdown feature, alarm and dual-time mode. Its also water resistant to 100 meters, just in case youre up for some underwater web surfing.

Watch Features:
Chronograph. Countdown. Alarm. Hourly Chime. Dual Time. Lap Memory.
Wifi Detection
Detects interference intensity of 2.4ghz signal
Detects AP stations over 100 metres outdoors
Anti-static and Shock Proof
100 Metres Water-Resistant

Does it tell you:

a) name of the network
b) If the network is secured or unsecured???

I don't know when I've ever OUT of a wi-fi zone. This watch may have been useful 5 years ago, but without any information regarding the visible networks, it's a bit pap. You can get wifi detecting pens/badges/cuddly toys for about a fiver these days.

More details please!

No - the manual is [URL="www.xonixe.com/support/manuals/Xonix%20WiFi%20Finder%20watch%20manual.pdf"]here[/URL]

I suppose once you were familiar with how sensitive it was in relation to your laptop the strength indicator would sometimes save you dragging the lappy out unneccessarily.

Its also water resistant to 100 meters, just in case youre up for some underwater web surfing.


Radio waves don't travel far in water so don't expect to use your laptop in the deep-end.

9 times out of 10 you will find the network is secured and therefore. Some however are free public wifi, and some are BT OpenZone, The Cloud, T-Mobile Hotspots etc which you may or may not be a subscriber to. Hence you need to boot the laptop to find the SSID and the security.

I assume the idea for this watch is to be able to quickly find somewhere you can access the internet in order to buy a better looking watch

most smart phones have wifi now so I just use them to do a quick check.
