That's so mainstream. A real hacker hacks himself a watch. Let me show you in a few weeks.

I used to wear one everyday, but stopped after I got my cellphone. I am annoyed because the watch always get stuck everywhere in narrow places, plus it's annoying when I wear winter clothes x.x
Ah for me, I don't even own a mobile phone. :)

Thanks all who replied. Man, it is hard to find people who still wear these calculator watches. :(

Yup. D: I think the issue, though, is how scientific calcs got cheaper over the years (other than TI ones) and the Casio calc watches did not elvolve at all. So most people would rather get a $5 scientific calc and use that rather than relying on a Casio watch. If Casio watches added more functions, then maybe  they would attract more people.

Plus, nowadays you got graphing calcs that most high school students get at one point, and those calcs can play Portal 2D, Doom (or clones of it), Mario, RPGs and plenty of iPhone game clones. Of course graphing calcs are much more expensive, but the fact graphing calcs can play such advanced games kinda make calc watches less attractive to people.

@Keoni I hope you get parts soon so you can make your own watch. :D

update: I need one very important part: the microcontroller which has not arrived yet. I started writing and testing the firmware a few days ago using an arduino. Now, as some of you might have heard on the IRC, it has got an onboard brainf**k interpreter and it can keep track of time and date. I wrote 10kB of code so far (compiled) and I have 20k of program space left.

It has got 3 buttons for user input and a 84*48px backlit lcd display.

This is breadboarded up for now, but when all of the parts are here I can build the watch.

Well like this:
Button 2 is the mode. (notice it says mode:char) You can switch between cursor mode and "change character" mode. Button 1 and 3 are left right or increase and decrease character. Hold button 2 for 1 sec to proceed to the next step.
