Dubbed the ‘Death Watch” by some, the wrist watch is supposed to be able to count down your life from years to seconds. But why would anyone want to spend all day, everyday watching the seconds of your life tick away?
Well according to the developers, it’s not meant to depress you but motivate you to cherish the time and the life you have been given. Sitting in the boardroom waiting for your colleague to finish his presentation? Stressing over the latest argument with your neighbour? Could you be doing something better with the minutes ticking away on your “Death Watch”?
So how does it work?
First you fill in a questionnaire, answering questions about your health, medical history, how often you exercise, weight etc. Now deduct your age from the results and the watch is ready to start your countdown.
The top row of the digital display shows years, months and days, while the second row counts down hours, minutes and seconds. The third row shows the local time.
