Ever since I was a kid I’ve been a fan of watches but I’m not talking in terms of style. No, if I’m going to the trouble of strapping something to my wrist it has to do far more than just display what time it is. As a result part of my brain now has a pretty useless section devoted to storing the past 20 or so years of the evolution of digital watch technology.
So I decided to post this watch from ThinkGeek for the sole reason of pointing out that it has already been done. In order to illuminate the blue LEDs all you need to do is shake your wrist (with the watch on it) and a built-in motion sensor will turn on the lights for a few seconds. However I owned a Timex 2 or 3 years ago with something called FLIX technology that did the exact same thing. Except it was also waterproof, had a superior Indigo backlight and only looked half as ugly as this watch. Now why did I feel the need to mention this you ask? Well your guess is as good as mine…
The Tilt Sensor LED Watch is available from ThinkGeek for $49.99.
