Get a Fast, Long-Lasting Charge in a "Snap."
The CST-01 charges in about 20 minutes and lasts for an entire month on a single charge, thanks to its paper-thin battery. The first of its kind, the MEC will keep the CST-01 ticking for 15 years.
The CST-01 charging station has a slot that the edge of the watch is inserted into, making charging a literal "snap."
Inspired by the Possibilities of E Ink
The idea for the CST-01 began in December 2011 when Dave Vondle, one of the founders of Central Standard Timing, taped an E Ink display around his wrist and said, “I want a watch like this.”
A year later, we designed a watch that highlights the most innovative qualities of E Ink’s SURF segmented displays; ultra-thinness, readability, ruggedness, flexibility, and low power. The patent-pending CST-01 is assembled by laminating thin, flexible components into a 0.5mm pocket etched into a single piece of flexible stainless steel, making it different than traditional digital watches, which typically use the same form factor of an analog watch.
