Mercedes Benz Rolls Out MP3 Wristwatch

Car maker Mercedes Benz has unveiled a branded MP3 wristwatch with a storage capacity of 512 MB.

The watch is actually a re-branded Laks watch, and is also available in a BMW-branded version.

I don't know why German car companies feel compelled to sell MP3 watches, but, if you can live without the car branding, buy the Laks original, which is available in a 1 GB version.

All the watches feature a pop-out USB cable for connecting to a Windows PC and earplug for listen to audio recordings and music files.
