I’ve written about so many modern digital watches that sacrifice ease of use for cool design (I’m talking to you, TokyoFlash). So it’s a breath of fresh air to see a modern digital that manages to balance looks with ease-of-use.
The Fusion DT1 is actually pretty easy to figure out after a quick read of the instruction sheet. That’s because each dot is at basically the same position that hands would appear on a conventional analog watch face.
The watch displays the time using a circular pattern of green LED dots. Each circle on the outer ring represents an hour, while each of 60 tiny dots on the inner ring indicates a minute. In lieu of a second hand, small square dots in the center light up. I count 30 squares, so I’d bet each one indicates 2 seconds, not 10 seconds as the product description says.
In addition to telling time, the DT1 also features day/date and alarm functionality. The Fusion DT1 comes in either a stainless steel or sleek black finish, and can be found at AudioCubes for $149.
