TIMEPIECE WITH A DEADLINE

Need a gift for the technophile who has everything? The Data Link watch from Timex Corp. (800 367-8463) may well be the oddest product of the year. The $130 plastic digital watch isn't much to look at. But it can copy a phone list and calendar from Microsoft's Schedule+ software by reading a pattern of flashing lines from the monitor of your Windows computer. Buttons on the watch let you read back the data through a little liquid-crystal display below the time. Although scrolling through the data eight characters at a time can get tedious, the Data Link can hold up to 70 items.
