Wearable Tv 1.5" Lcd now down to only £34.98 @ Empire Direct!!!

Found 22nd Jan 2007
I'll make a re-post for this, as it has dropped in price again. The clearance models of the Nh Japan VTV201 have been reduced to £29.99, or £34.98 delivered @ Empire Direct! NOt bad for this! We've had the conversation before that it is not digital, so will be obsolete in a few years - but you can't expect much more for £35 !!

Details: TV wrist watch ** 1.5" screen size ** Up to 4 hours playback - 1 hour from watch battery and extra 3 hours when placed on the battery powered docking station ** 557x234 pixel resolution ** Can be used without batteries with the AC adapter ** 1 Year Parts Guarantee / 1 Year Labour Guarantee

"These products are either ex-display, end of line, or "as new" customer returns."

Sounds like folk might have bought them at the higher price and returned them as not up to scratch.

They look pretty good, but I think someone did mention the short battery life in the other thread. Although they do come with AC adaptor too.

Thanks for the pointer Emma

Ideal if your looking for a present but something different, maybe for your 13 year olds birthday or something.

I am sure my 13 year old would be over the moon with this little gadget. Not sure how good the reception would be though.

The aerial is contained in the earpiece wire don't know how good the reception is though

Just so people know NHJ have gone bankrupt in Japan (although I think the US arm of the operation is still going)

I was lucky to buy a NHJ PVR in the gadget shop's final days at a really good orice

And had no problem with it what so ever and managed to pick up a replacement battery on ebay for £10

Actually I think there's an ongoing debate about this, for the days when people will have free access to TV on their mobiles for example. If they have a TV license at home, they will be covered, but if not, they will be committing an illegal act. !!

would be better buying one of the Lobster mobile phones

By law if it doesnt plug into the mains then you dont need one so all handheld tvs are license free (i think)

If you want something more modern, try the Brando MP4 watch from their Hong Kong site. Only the equivalent of 50 quid for the 1GB model, plus 3 dollars delivery. It doesn't get stung for import duty either.

See the usual nerd sites for a review and comments on it's failings, but it's a great gadget!

Would you need a £140 tv licence if you got one of these?

Please read posts above...

according to the web page other people considered the Humax PVR9200T
Digital Freeview 160gb Twin Tuner , you would need to also buy a wheel barrow and a generator

Here is a map covering every area telling you when your analogue will be switched off:
