Tired of always losing the remote? Keep it on your wrist with the TV Remote Control Watch, a digital timepiece that doubles as a handy control center for your home entertainment system.
While you may scoff at the idea, a wristwatch actually makes perfect sense for a remote. Just strap the inch-wide black rubber silicone band on your arm and you can immediately banish the recurring problem of missing remotes from your existence. At least, until you forget where you placed the watch when you removed it last night.
The TV Remote Control Watch has a busy-looking brushed stainless steel watch case, measuring 2 x 1.625 x 0.5 inches. Six physical buttons sit on the side of the bezel, controlling essential home theater functions (volume, power, channel up/down, play/rewind/fast forward). There’s no learning mode or manual entry, but it’s got a whole host of IR-equipped electronics pre-programmed– just enter the code and it will immediately work for that specific machine (fingers crossed if you’ve got an ultra-cheap TV from some obscure Taiwanese manufacturer).
Of course, it can function like a regular watch, too. Aside from showing the time and date, its got alarm, calendar and chronograph functions. The busy display looks more high-tech than it actually is, but we think that’s a good thing.
If you’re tired of remotes that end up between the cracks of the sofa, kicked under cabinet drawers or stowed away in some other secret crevasse of the house, the TV Remote Control Watch might be the channel changer you’ve been waiting for. It’s available now, priced at $99.95.
