Imation wraps 256MB Flash round wrist

Worth the wrist?

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Worried about losing your USB Flash drive? Concerned that if you keep it on a key ring it'll get scratched? Bothered wearing it round your neck will make it seem you're wearing a cheap iPod Shuffle knock-off? Imation has the answer: the Flash Wristband.

Yes, it's modelled on those irritatingly ubiquitous 'I CARE, HONEST I DO' plastic wriststraps, this time with 256MB of storage and a USB connector built in. Just unhook the "friction fit" lock in the "rubberised" strap and you're ready to drag 'til you drop.

You can buy the Flash Wristband in black or blue and the strap is marketed as 'one size fits all', so if the thing falls off - or your hands lose all sensation and turn black - contact the manufacturer.

Imation is selling the gadget in the US for $35 in Target stores. ®
