Review – Up Close with the Asteroids Watch

Got my hands on a pre-production model of the Fossil Asteroids watch and was pleasantly surprised. It’s quite a beefy watch and makes interesting use of Fossils unique LCD technology. The screen is actually the Asteroids playing field complete with rolling asteroids and the little triangle spaceship.

While it’s not playable—I’m sorry, but it would be SO COOL—this pieces is quite a conversation starter. Because it wasn’t quite finished, the button above the crown didn’t do anything although it suspect it turns on a backlight in the final product. The packaging was fairly clever and the beefy buckle and strap combo are quite nice.

Generally, I can’t wait to see what else Fossil has up its sleeve. This is definitely a great start.

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.

We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.

  1. Very very cool. How did I miss this? So the asteroids actually move? Does the ship move? Shoot? Get destroyed when hit with an asteroid? Do you think they’re thinking of a playable model in the future? Good stuff!

  2. An I right in thinking that there are a preset number of object positions – like an old LCD game and watch rather than a proper dot matrix screen?
