John over at The Wrist Watch Review got his hands on one of the new Fossil Atari Asteroids watches. These things look like a lot of fun, especially if you used to be an Atari 2600 junkie, like myself. The watch isn’t playable, unfortunately, but it is animated, which means the asteroids (blobs) and the ship (triangle) do actually move. The Fossil Atari Asteroids watch runs $125, and is available on Fossil’s site. If these types of watches appeal to you, don’t wait because this is a limited edition of only 5,000 pieces total, and only 2,000 slotted for the US.
Similarly geeky watches from Fossil include the:
- Clone Wars watch
- Darth Vader watch
- Droids watch
- Superman Street watch
- Batman Legend watch
- Lord of the Rings watch
All are limited editions, for better or for worse.
