If you've been thinking about getting a smartwatch, and you like movies, you may want to hold off for a first-of-its-kind smartwatch that debuted at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. This one has a projector.

In fact, it uses the world's smallest laser projector module to project movies up 60 inches wide in 1280 x 600 resolution, and supports video up to 720p. Yet, it's a wearable watch. (See photos above and below.)

The ASU Cast One from the Chinese company ASU Technology can cast an image as small as two inches, to alert you to an incoming phone call, for example. Or, it can project onto a wall up to six and a half feet away. You can use it to project your fitness stats on the ground as you're running or project directions onto your car's windshield. (See video.)

It works like other smartwatches, with a Wi-Fi connection to your smartphone. It works on Android devices using Google's Android operating system, 5.1 and above.

It uses Qualcomm's quad-core APQ8026 processor, up to 1.2GHz. It uses a 700mAh battery and can be used with video platforms Airplay, DLNA, and Miracast.
