The latest creation from Tokyoflash might just be enough to make 007 a little jealous. The Kisai Upload packs a built-in Micro SD card reader and includes a 2GB card to get you started. This “always on” display has a large rectangular face that looks almost non discernible until you slightly tilt the watch back to reveal the actual time. There of course are also multiple LED colors to choose from for backlighting and the stainless steel band comes either polished or in black. The SD slot can be accessed by removing the back cover plate with the included tool, but you only need to use one of the two included USB cables to get to the data on the card. Either way if you have to move some data from Beijing to Newark, the good news is that you no longer need to a brain implant or have the risk of getting chased by a crazy Yakuza Cyborg. The Upload includes all the standard features of most Tokyoflash watches, and of course as usual will make you the coolest guy in the office.

One full charge will take 3.5 hours and each charge should last 3-4 months. There are more than 300 charges in one battery and the standard LIR2032 battery is replaceable. Kisai Upload also has an adjustable strap.

The Upload is another concept to reality design that adds a new layer of functionality to the Kisai line of watches. Of course 2GB is not all that much data in today’s standards but you can easily replace the card with a larger one if needed in the future. I am guessing since the watch is waterproof to a certain depth then you also have weather tight storage with you that you are not as likely to lose as you would a thumb drive. The watch itself is a really sleek and cool design without the storage, so for me it’s really an added bonus to have a built-in SD card reader plus it just adds to a few points to your level of geekiness.
The Kisai Upload is available now from the Tokyoflash with a discounted introductory price of $149, which is $20 off the MSRP. You have a few colors to choose from and since it’s over $120 then shipping is free anywhere in the world. It’s never too early to start Christmas shopping this year, I’m sure the geek on your list would have no complaints.
