An oscilloscope/freq counter on your wrist

oscope_watchJust what you need during a QRP afield event when something goes wrong – an oscilloscope/frequency counter that you wear as a watch! Oh, and it’s a watch too.

The Oscilloscope Watch will be available in June for $150 from Xprotolab and pre-orders are being accepted now.

Check out their small other oscopes here. Various online reviews caution would-be buyers not to think of them as “toyish” but rather as functional and bug-free devices.

    Humm… A 4 MSPS and 200 KHz bandwidth oscilloscope not being a toy? Only if you play with audio and VLF. Even most digital electronic will require a better scope to clearly see what’s happening…

      Yes, and a $150 non-toy at that!

    I have the $20 oscilloscope board from the same company. Turns my tablet computer into a 7″ oscilloscope & logic analyser & AWG see http://g4fre.blogspot.com/2014/01/20-oscilloscope.html.

      I was looking at something similar on their site as I also have a Nexus 7. But, as Yan says, I have doubts as to its suitability at typical ham HF freqs.

      Regardless, it is nice to see test equipment becoming more affordable for the average ham. When I got my ticket in the 70’s it was unheard of for a ham to own an oscope or spectrum analyzer – they were the exclusive domain of the rich minority.
