FM transmitter put to innovativce use

MP3 FM watch
Thanko RareMono Shop

That's what we thought at first too, until we looked a little closer this "FMP3 Watch" from Tokyo's RareMono Shop, which we learned of through Gizmag. What caught our eye is this USB-equipped watch's ability to record audio from a variety of sources with or without a computer, then play it back wirelessly through your car stereo and other systems with an FM transmitter controlled on the wrist.

And, unlike some other watch devices, it actually tells time.
