My watch was found on a train. It's a mood watch, so the face changes color, but I forgot what the colors meen.

Normally I buy my timex watches at wal-mart for like $20 and wear them until they fall apart. I wear the mood watch when I dress up for a night out and what not.

Edit- In the future, try to elaborate on the topic of the thread, instead of racking up points for glowy text in the store. _Groovy

My watch can emit an electromagnetic field that can repel attackers and disable electronic devices within 100 feet of me, it can shoot laser beams, it has a mobile satellite uplink I can use the internet with it and watch TV on it, and it also serves as a video wrist communicator!

Okay... it doesn't really... I JUST...NEED... SOMETHING TO BE PROUD OF!!! :(

I have a pretty good watch, actually. Its Swiss. Heh heh heh... heh...

You call THAT a watch? :)


http://www.thinkgeek.com/images/products/front/wrist-linx.jpg The only wristwatch with a 2-way radio available to date. It features a built-in 22-channel FRS walkie talkie with a 1.5-mile range. The voice-activated feature allows you to speak into the microphone and your words will be beamed directly to the speaker of any other FRS walkie talkie user within range.
Contains 1 Li-ion Rechargeable Battery and AC adaptor. Running time on a single charge is about 2 hours.

Other features of the WristLinx are:

Up to a 1.5-Mile range
Digital Watch
22 Channels: Channels 1-14 FRS, Channels 15-22 GMRS
VOX (Voice Activated)

http://www.thinkgeek.com/images/products/front/laser-watch.jpg Watch with built-in laser pointer - because you never know when you'll need a laser these days. You might need to point at something, and for added emphasis nothing is more handy than a laser. Or you might want to play games in the dark with your friends, like "look at my cool laser watch" and others. Whatever the situation, you're ready...

The laser watch is water resistant and shockproof. Takes 3 "LR44" batteries that provide up to 1 hour of "constant on" laser operation. Laser is 650 nm wavelength red.

Laser emission range: 500yds

http://www.thinkgeek.com/images/products/front/radioactivity-watch.jpg Based on state-of-the-art technology, Vigilant Watch is a highly reliable monitoring device that does much more than just show the time. Equipped with the smallest integrated radiation detector to date, it is meant for anyone who wants protection from the harmful consequences of radiation and to assess the radiation to which they are exposed in everyday life.

Wherever you might be, at work or outdoors, Vigilant Watch will assess the radiation situation and provide an audible or vibrating alarm in case of radiation danger, when the preset threshold values are exceeded. The watch is sensitive to the lowest radiation levels and can detect radioactive contamination sites or locate gamma radiation sources. Thus, it gives a visible form to an intangible reality, which is ubiquitous in its natural state and necessary to life support, but is nevertheless a potential threat to health.

This risk has increased as the technological applications of radioactivity have developed. Since the radiation dose and accumulation are key factors, the Vigilant Watch can also assess the ambient dose equivalent and its accumulation time.

A highly efficient monitoring device, Vigilant Watch is also a watch manufactured according to the very strict quality requirements of Swiss factories. Manufactured with an elegant design, with strongly built steel or titanium case and band, backlit display for perfect reading of all functions in the dark, and analog and digital time indication under sapphire or mineral glass.

This watch could be very useful for the following people:

Personnel from nuclear plants, nuclear research and waste professionals
Medical professionals such as nuclear medicine specialists, radiologists, dentists
Security personnel including military, customs agents, fire protection, civil security, disaster relief, police forces
Waste removal and transport companies
Flight crews
Journalists and environmentalists
Professionals of international organisations travelling to risk areas
Embassy personnel
Anyone having to deal with radioactive material
Tourists travelling to risk areas
Frequent flyers
The general public anxious to know about the presence of radioactive materials

http://www.thinkgeek.com/images/products/front/binary-watch.jpg A wonderfully geeky piece of hardware - the Binary Watch! It displays time in both standard format and binary format. This watch also has date, alarm, and chronograph functions - both in normal and binary displays. It even displays the seconds counting in binary!

A single button is used to instantly change between standard and binary display modes.

The Matrix Binary Watch has these features:

Standard and binary time displays
Alarm
Chronograph
Calendar (with day, year, month and date)
Blue luminescent backlight
Water resistant
Battery included
Instruction manual that includes a decimal to binary conversion chart (for the weak-minded)


http://www.thinkgeek.com/images/products/front/remote-control-watch.jpg Okay, just how cool is a watch with a built-in universal remote control? Well...pretty darn cool we think. Imagine the possibilities - you'll never lose your remote again; you can go to your neighborhood sports bar and take control of those big screen TVs; when visiting a friends house you can watch what you want to watch. Put the power that comes with having the remote right on your wrist!

The Midas features comtemporary styling and a sleek design. The watch is not large or clunky. The remote control buttons are very well integrated into the overall watch design and are very easy to push. The remote can be programmed, using a 4 or 5 digits code, in approximately 30 seconds. The pre-programmed database of codes covers every make/model of TV and cable receiver imaginable.

Some other features of this watch:

Very large database of pre-programmed infrared codes
Sleek design
Set-up takes about 30 seconds
Controls for Volume (+/-), Channel (+/-), Mute, and Power
Range of at least 20 ft and at least 20 degree angle
Seiko watch movement
Stainless steel casing and grey polyurethane band
Batteries are included
One-year warranty



http://www.thinkgeek.com/images/products/front/falcon-24hr.jpgIf you are used to looking at that date format, then you are probably a sysadmin, or unix user. Taking this into account, we have attempted to find the perfect watch, just for you, that displays the time using 24-hour movement. Thus, we offer this unique and practical watch, with 24-hour dial.

Now your system time and the time on your wrist can be in perfect sync! This watch has the following features:

Black stainless steel case with satin finish.
Date marker and second hand.
Water resistant to 100 feet.
Water resistant strap.
Luminous dial and hands.
3-year battery included.
Adjustable date/time.
Swiss movement.
Great for sysadmins, or anyone working on a 24-hour schedule (tech support, pilots, doctors, caffeine junkies!)

oooh I need that Laser pointer one. never know when I need to point it at some one and say they have a red dot on their face.

nono, the remote control watch. I can change the channel during class.. can it turn on TVs too? That'd be sweet. While in Math I can make the teacher waste her time turning off the TV instead of doing boring math problems.

but I like the walkie talkie watch. Now I have a good reason to talk to my watch instead of looking like an idiot when I talk to it

oh but wait, the radiation watch might be safest. Never know when there will be radiation in my neighborhood.

:p

How much are those watches???

I have a Timex Expedition.

http://i.us.rmi.yahoo.com/images/walmart2/49/21603263,2852797220,100,100,70,70.jpg

Got it as a birthday gift last year. I am not to happy with it. I didn't pick it out. I don't like the way it looks (darn velcoro strap and ugly colors), but it does the job. Tells time (duh), Indiglo light, backlight, (the green tint that is brightened when the sun hits it, saves battery power) compass, chrono, alarm, and a timer. My last watch, a cheap $25 Casio had another clock for time zones... I wish this one had that :(

Hope to get a new one this year.








Am I the only one who feels naked without a watch?
