Retro Arcade Watch Overview

If you’ve noticed, almost everyone wants in on the smartwatch game. This is why it comes as a surprise that there are still developers who aren’t sold on the idea of overly advanced watches. The Retro Arcade Watch is one perfect example. ┬áIt’s the ultimate throwback accessory.

It’s basically a watch, but with a twist. It looks like a little arcade machine. It also has a little joystick! Even the display borrows inspiration from the old school games. You’ll see asteroids and a space ship whenever you check the time. Of course, it wouldn’t be complete without the fancy lights and sounds. The watch can light up and give off the familiar “pew” sound effects every time you press the “fire” button.

Interested? It’s being sold for $50 at ThinkGeek.
