This obscure watch, the Web-@nywhere, appeared only briefly around 2001. Using a dock attached to a PC via its serial port, you could transfer 128KB of text from websites for later reading on the go. Of course, you would have to read that minuscule amount of text on its two-line, 18-character LCD, which sounds like an exercise in self-punishment. Web-@nywhere’s creator, Hong Kong-based World Network Limited, primarily marketed it through mail-order catalogs, which may partially explain why few folks remember it.
