WHAT THE COMPANY SAYS:
‘Next generation digital watch with a touch screen, Smartphone-like watch apps, “always on” display, and you never need to charge it.’ The silicon banded watches are $159. The stainless steel version is $199 and the black stainless steel version is $209.
WHAT WE SAY:
Sure, it’s got a ‘touch screen’ face but after our smart phones, such as the iPhone, it’s clumsy and awkward to use. While it’s fairly intuative to set up, the ‘apps’ are basically just a calculator, alarm, timer and stopwatch. Oh yeah, and a ‘lunar calendar’ because you’ll want to check that often. Also, there’s no bluetooth connectivity so unlike your smart phone it won’t tell you when you get a text or a message
For watch connisseurs, there’s 5 different watch faces to chose from which includes a traditional analog look and a digital read out. That’s a cool feature.
As far as the design is concerned, the Touch Time is wide and clunky, and this from a gal who wears a big-faced old-fashioned watch!
Tech exists for this to be s silver of the size it is now. Just out, it’s already out-dated. By comparison, their E-ink screen watches, are much cooler. (Pictured below.)
