Back in January (here), we brought you a hands-on review of the Time-It watch, a silicone and LED slap bracelet of a timekeeper. They’re back now with a new model that they’re hoping to bring to market.
The project is up at crowd-funding site Indiegogo (project page), and the watch is called (at least for now) the Triple-X. Sure, it may be a cheap attention grabbing ploy, but it also representative of how the watch is displaying information. You’ve got three rows of LEDs that combine to tell the time. The 1st row is the hours, 2nd the 10’s place of the minutes, and third the remaining part of the minutes.
At the time of this writing, there’s just over three weeks left to go in the campaign, and funding looks like it will fall short of the mark. If the project does fall short, however, you’ll still end up with a watch of some sort. Per what they’ve got on the page, you’ll end up with a designer watch (unspecified) – so, if you’re feeling adventurous, it may be worth a flier. And, if the watches do get to market, $29 (plus another $15 for international shipping) is a pretty low price to pay for some LEDs to put on your wrist.
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.
