Seiko has discontinued the Messagewatch, and their paging service went offline on Dec 31, 1999, so my watch no longer functions as a beeper.

The only other pager-watch I know of is [The Timex Beepwear], but be warned that it only has a three-month battery life.

What's up with your watch?

For christmas I bought myself a Seiko Messagewatch- a new gadget from Seiko that lets you receive sports scores, weather reports, and financial news every day, along with personal messages and pages, without having to stuff a pager in your pocket.

The Messagewatch is the same size as a regular men's digital watch, and they come in a variety of styles. I think the best value is the sport II model, shown here, which is the least expensive water resistant model at around $119.
