MP3 watches near disposable prices

Chinavasion comes out with 1GB model for $27.

Chinavasion

With so many companies now making MP3 watches--diverse brands ranging from Hyundai to Skullcandy --it was inevitable that some manufacturers would break out for the low end of the market, just as they are with handheld players . And no one will be shocked to find that companies from China are among them.

Chinavasion, which has already been making video watches for as low as $56, has come out with a new MP3 wristwatch with 1GB of built-in memory for $27 (even less in bulk purchases) in a variety of colors, as seen on 7Gadgets. But even at these prices, we're still going to wait--at this rate, we might see a cheaper one on sale next to the disposable razors in the checkout line at Safeway.
