Watch Doubles as Remote

Remote WatchNever worry about a lost remote again. Next time you are thinking that you need to replace your watch, you might consider the SL-2020 TV Remote Control Watch. The timepiece displays time in a 12/24 hour format with alarm, is a 1/1000 stopwatch, keeps track of all time zones, and can control hundreds of different TVs, VCRs, and DVD players. Water resistant, it works up to a distance of 3 to 5 meters, with the puny price of $12.50.

Created with a mirrored dial like the original analog with rotating discs, his watch is available in a Limited Edition of 100 for ~$163.00. To see more of Jones’ concepts with messages, check out his website.

Home Theater Watch That Plays Movies!

Home Theater Watch

Remember reading Dick Tracy comics as a kid, and being wowed by his tres-cool two-way radio watch? We’ve found something even more mind-blowing. It’s the aptly-named Home Theater Watch, which not only tells time, but with its 2GB of storage, can store a full-length feature film! The watch includes software to convert almost any video file—including AVI, MPEG and WMV —into the watch’s format. Send the files to the timepiece via USB and you’re set to view the season finale of “Shooting Sizemore” on an airplane, the subway,

or at a business conference

on the watch’s 1.5” screen. The Home Theater Watch even plays MP3’s, WMA’s and displays JPEG photos! If you’re single, we think this cool watch is a much better conversation starter than a cute puppy…and lots cheaper.  Available now for $149 USD.
