Pixel Watch, Coolness Personified

by

Pixel Watch White

This may look like yet another cool conceptual watch but I’m delighted to report it’s not a concept but a real life in the shops product.

The Pixel Watch from ODM is one of the coolest watches we’ve seen in ages. The Pixel Watch uses an EL (Electro Luminescent) band, and translucent casing to produce an unusual and contemporary design. On the hour every hour, between 9pm and 3am there is an on screen animation and scrolling pattern.

The pixel watch comes in either whit, brown or gawdy pink and is on sale for £80 (~$160) from Red 5.

Cool watch

Don’t let the pic fool you – it’s really an expensive piece of junk. No joke. I just received mine and it’s very cheap plastic, including the non-adjustable and feels-like-it’s-going-to-snap “bracelet” they’ve used instead of a normal watch strap. To correct Charlie White – the numerals are NOT white, they are green, just like in the pic, just like it’s displaying right now in front of me.

Now don’t get me wrong, it looks nice from far away, like some huge zulu bracelet from pluto. But the screen isn’t scratch resistant as my house key just made a nice brush against the watch face and now there’s a very noticeable scratch. The worst part is the whole LED action – it’s not very bright unless you’re in a dark nightclub. And the whole “special light show”?? – It’s nothing but a quick flash of 3 LED’s for less than a second – soooo not impressed.

I’d say if you’re a girl with a tiny wrist and don’t mind wearing an expensive but gimmicky and gigantic protrusion of a bracelet(?!) – then this is for you. Otherwise, don’t waste your money. If I had to recommend something 200 times nicer and more fashionable, I’d say go with nooka – their watches are very VERY nice for about the same price. Plus you get basic watch functions like alarm settings and timers and you could jump in a pool with it on and it’ll run forever.

Boo ODM. Boooooooo.
