    Hideous design and high price! A search on eBay for ‘remote watch’ will return a number of watches (some with touch screen, others in a 1980s-style digital with big buttons) for $5-10.

    That’s an old idea. I had a casio watch that did that back in the early 90’s that I used all the time. I did a quick google search of ‘casio remote control watch’ and saw they’re still making it (looks similar to what I had).

    It was great… I waited tables in a sports bar in a hotel, and there were 30+ tv’s there. Folks would ask me if I could change the channel to a different game and I’d say “sure… just a sec” and change it with my watch. Their jaws always dropped to the floor. :) Then there were the times I’d mess with folks and just stand off to the side and change the channel. Ahhh… good times.

    The current casio watch looks cheaper too…. and I’d trust casio.

    I still have a watch like this I bought nearly 20 years ago. it would even learn the functions if they were not included. This looks much more swankier, though.

    The face on this watch says “DVD, VCD, LD, VIR”.

    The 70’s called. They want their Laser Disc player back!

    Why in the world would it have a tachymeter scale on the face?

    it’s not a tachymeter scale, it’s a pulse rate to measure the user’s anger when it’s not working.
