Abstract

Currently, the wristwatch pagers on the market have the watch features and pager messaging features as part of a common display arrangement on the top surface of the watch mechanism. This does present some compromises with respect to how detailed the pager messaging can be displayed. If the liquid crystal display (LCD) were to be made larger the end result would be a wristwatch pager size that would be uncomfortable and very undesirable for the end-user. Other alternatives need to be considered to allow the user to have reasonable message length, large font size for the display characters and alphanumeric messaging scrolling flexibility for ease of message reading.
