Data Bank capabilities: 50 pages of contacts with eight characters and 12 numerals per contact. All contacts are alphabetized. The watch has a search feature where the user can type the first few letters of the desired contact to look up that contact's information. Applications: Schedule and Time Table tracking. The ability to keep track of appointments or a schedule. Calculator: 8 digits Alarms: Five seperate alarms Stopwatch: 59 minutes, 59.99 seconds Accuracy: +/- 15 seconds per month LCD: Complex Dot Matrix display with Adjustable Contrast via a screw under the back panel History The time was August 1984 and Casio was king of digital watches. After creating the world's first databank/calculator watch (CD-401) and the world's first finger trace calculator watch (AT-500), Casio wanted to show off their digital watch technology with a pinacle flagship decades ahead of its time. The focus was not to make a profit but, rather, to show off Casio's capabilities. Because of this the watch sold in very limited numbers. How It Works Using a grid of touch sensitive lines under a protective film over the LCD, Casio was able to create a watch that recognizes letters, numbers and symbols. The user can input up to 50 contacts with phone numbers by actually drawing each letter and number on the keypad. The same goes for calculations. If you want to calculate 2+2= you would first go to CAL mode. You would see a "0" on the display, just as you would with a regular calculator. Then you simply draw the number two on the face of the watch with your finger. A number two will display, just as it would on a normal calculator. Then you would draw the "+" symbol with your finger and you would see the plus symbol by the number two, again like a normal calculator. Then trace another number two. Then draw an equal symbol and the display will read "4". The calculator is as capable as any other normal calculator.
