Reconvilier Hercules Golf-Master Watch Is Embarrassed Of Its Techy Side

It’s sad when a gadget won’t embrace it’s techy side, like the Hercules Golf-Master watch from Reconvilier which uses an overly-complicated ‘Rotar’ mechanism to flip the classic analog watch face over, revealing a digital range finder display underneath. In addition to a digital time display, so you don’t have to keep flipping the watch face over, the LCD also shows you the exact distance to the green or the flag. A base station called the ‘Caddie’ attached to your golf bag is used to obtain data about the course you’re playing before you start your round, as well as your location via GPS, and during play the distance information is automatically sent to the watch as you move about.

    That's so cool, even though all it would take is one lcd face with a button that switched between the two displays.
