Retro is in, and if you’ve ever wanted a genuine Game Boy on your wrist then your dreams have come true.
You may ask, who uses an actual watch to tell time anymore? But watches are making a comeback (and we don’t mean the health, fitness and happiness wrist monitors people buy to remind them to exercise, live longer and be happy) and if you’re looking for something that will stand out from the crowd, this is the gadget for you.
Nintendo’s Game Boy Color Watch Smells Like The 90s
The Nintendo Time To Step Things Up Game Boy Color Watch is an officially licensed Nintendo product and is available now from Merchoid. The watch follows the design of the outrageously popular Game Boy Color which was released in 1998 and marketed as “Portable fun in Color”.
The design is so close to the original (the plastic probably even smells like the 90s) that you’ll find complete strangers trying to press buttons on it to see what they do or telling you about their memories of their first Game Boy. They may even want to see what it’s like on their own wrist. Yes, be prepared for strangers to want to feel, play with and talk about your new watch.
It Will Not Tell You About Your Heartbeat
Nintendo’s new offering will bring back all the fun of the handheld console on a plastic strap, and most importantly, all the buttons work. The interface includes the date, an alarm function and a digital time display.
The Game Boy Color Watch comes in an eye-catching turquoise color and of the greatest features of the watch is its simplicity – it will tell you the hour, what day it is and get you up in the morning or wake you from a much-needed nap, but that’s it. Don’t expect it to tell you what to eat for breakfast or how your heartbeat compares with last week.
