While in recent years the only watches I seem to wear are GPS watches, I have always loved distinctive ways of displaying time. Way back in the early 80s I was on a team that programmed an early LED communications device that scrolled the time, temperature and messages in a major hallway at my university. So when I saw the Kisai Neutron I was intrigued. Basically it is a thin and sleek watch that displays the time using large numbers on a bright and distinct scrolling LED panel.
More than that, the Kisai Neutron has motion sensor technology, so if enabled you can simply shake your wrist and the time is displayed. There is also an always-on mode, which will naturally burn through the battery quicker. Speaking of which, the Kisai Neutron is USB charged with an estimated one month battery life.
