    You could slap a GPS receiver in a digital watch and have something that still worked when you went on vacation.

Yours for $800.

    Gears are cool and all, but I think they passed the typewriters and cassette tapes but for rich people mark several miles back.

I mean, dude. It's over a million dollars and if you need the tides at two breaks, you have to buy another. You know that game where people find the stupidest thing they can run Linux on?

This is kind of like that but for insanely wealthy people.

(apropos of nothing, I love that guy's accent and hair, and I love that VC made a like $15m watch, quantity 1, by finding a rich dude and saying "dude you're rich we'll make you anything" and then calling the thing "57260")
