Welcome to the
Casio VDB-1000 shrine !

This is an unofficial page.
This page is no way supported by Casio.
I am not a Casio reseller, and i'm not planning to sell my watch.

The Casio VDB-1000 is a very unique watch : it's a very early touch-screen PDA on your wrist!
I first believed that this watch was the first ever touch-screen watch, but Casio was not the first on this playground actually : back in 1984, EPSON released the RC-20 which offered both a touch screen and a programmable mode.
I've also heard about earlier touch screen models from Casio; like a VDB-100; which i have no details about, but sounds like a very similar product.
Today, however, even after Casio released newer touch screen watches, the VDB-1000 concept is still unique : it's the only Casio touch-screen watch with a full graphic display and very different application screens.
The touch screen area covers the 3/4 of the screen, with an extra area below the display area for 5 sensitive function keys, namely : UP, FUNCTION, MENU, SELECT, DOWN.
Apart from those function keys, the sensitive area on the screen offers 15 sensitive keys which are freely used by the different applications. Only the top display line has no sensitive mapping.

Tech data : memory 1.4 KB; display 10x4 char, 60x32 pix
