    I like those watches from Japan that tell the time in dots (LEDS).

    I think yellow ones are hours, green ones are minutes and red ones are seconds.

    Theres one of these for groups of 10 minutes, but I cannot quite remember.

    Either way it was really nice.

    some of these watches are crazy today

    my watch tell me the time when I look at it (as well as current date)

    it doesnt present me with 50 leds that are dancing to variable sequences,
    and too actually get the time, you have to add the dots up
    and lets not even get started with binary watches...

    I have one of those. Love it, but I don't wear it now because part of the strap holder broke.

    I'd rather have a real life version of the Poketch from Pokemon D/P/Pt.

    Looks awesome. I have an old watch that has a calculator on it. I got it about 7 years ago, but it's pretty cool.

    That TV remote ability kills the batteries really fast though. While it's a fun novelty item, it's useless for everyday use simply because it's such a monster of a watch. You have to remember, the watch only has a battery about the size of a nickel.

    In the years I wore it, I think I might've only needed to have the battery changed maybe once, possibly twice.

    ...What...How dare you call it just a watch! *in a nasally, scratchy voice* It's a Casio Men's *sniff* Technoware Calculator TV Remote Watch! *pushes up glasses with index finger*

    Anyway, I have decided to get a video watch from Thinkgeek (Unless other sites have it) for my birthday this year (My family thinks they should get me a lot, or at least more than usual, since I'll be 18...All I really want is an HDTV for my room and a game or two) so I can watch videos in class. I won't have sound, unless I can string my headphones through my hoodie sleeve and up to my ear, since I have medium-long hair that goes to the bottom of my cheeks.

    A friend of mine actually has one of those, and I remember being really surprised when I found out that it actually works.

    Orly...

    Interesting. I like the built-in camera. It's good for looking under skir-...

    Skirms......?

    You could like pretend to tie your shoe behind a girl...or guy...and aim it up.

    Profit during the summer.

    Really? [​IMG] How would that work? You'd have to shove your hand up her skirt, and if you are allowed that, I don't think you need a spy camera any more. Nudge nudge wink wink.

    EDIT: I see. Oh well, I guess.
