Time-It LED Watches Bring Back the Slap-Happy 80s

These LED watches may be brand new, but they draw at least some of their inspiration from those tacky 1980s slap bracelets. You know, those stupid flexible wristbands covered in leopard prints or zebra stripes that came flat, but you had to slap onto your wrist to wear.

Time-It LED Watches

The Time-It series of watches is designed for active types, wrapped in a flexible waterproof silicone case that snaps to curl around your wrist just like those wacky relics from the days of big shoulder pads and even bigger hair. So just how do you tell time on these oddities? Simply glance at the LED dots when the watch lights up. The top row is numbered from 0 to 11 to indicate hours, while the bottom row displays minutes.

Strangely enough, this is the first watch that I’ve seen that requires regular charging. When you remove the watch, you’ll need to place it in its “magic case” (also known as a charging base), and it’ll hold anywhere from one day’s to two weeks’ worth of juice, depending on usage.

At $189 each, they’re a bit on the pricey side, but if you’re looking for a really offbeat watch design, look no further. You can find the entire collection over at the LED Watch Stop.
