For most people I would agree. But I travel a lot and it's a heck of a lot easier to just change the time zone than have to change the actual time on the watch by an hour or two.

Wrong! The atomic time signal in the US is synchronized to the Universal Coordinated Time. Any devices that use that as a reference for setting local time have to know what the date is and have to know what time zone you are in so that they can make the adjustment. A device that you set for Central time, but that uses the old start and end dates WILL BE WRONG.



Correct. I have an atomic clock that adjusts for normal DST, but for now an hour has to be added on EST. Other time zones could switch to the next one East until it it is right. Example, change CST to EST for now.

Given the size (1 5/8" x 1 5/8") it may look funky. The dial on my watch is 1-3/8" diameter, area 1.49"2, this puppy is 2.64"2, will definitely look massive.

I do not carry or own a cell phone-I've always had a watch.
Why are you children so worried about what the watch looks like?
That you won't fit in with your peers,maybe you'll be DIFFERENT!!!
On topic-atomic watches are ribz.

Excellent, I was in the market for a new watch anyways.

Plus I got an MP3 player for my son via the iRock side deal. And an MMP for myself, because I could.

For those with an atom-sized sex drive..

Notice the pasty complexion of the wearer, with just the lightest dusting of Nacho chip crumbs.

This is a very ugly watch. Watches are a fashion accessory these days. If you paid me $20 I wouldn't wear this.

The good thing about it is if you're ever in a bind, you can call KITT to come get you out of it.



Actually, isn't KITT up for sale on eBay? I read something about it some days ago. Maybe you can do the package deal and get KITT to sync with this house arrest device.

good lord, that's uglier than a duck bill on a models kisser!

what is this 1985? someone said it looks disco. must not have been around during the 80s... because these digi-watches were all the rage mid 80s, not the late 70s.

no wonder they are selling them so cheap. they found a stash from the safe where originals michael jackson's thriller album are kept and they needed to get rid of these things so they could make room for jackos oxygen chamber...

damn. woot woot, where have you gone? where are the days of the good woots? at least bring back a roomba =P...

I've seen this watch before...

It was either hanging up by the register at the gas station or a prize in my Burger King value meal.

It is atomic
it is a good woot
it is not ugly (see "he's not fat he's just big boned.)
and mostly it is 24.99 to your door.

The perfect first woot I think.

I have something like an hourly chime set up on my cell phone (hand-entered repeating "appointments" that repeat every day) to remind me to stay focused (i.e. work instead of posting comments on Woot.) This watch will probably help me.

But the main reason I ordered it is because it looks like Woot went back in time to the 1980s and stole a shipment. Thank you so much, Woot!

THE MOB HAS SPOKEN! Making fun of current art....
This watch is a "classic." Remember the Art Deco of Miami Beach? It too was shunned. It all came back and is now appreciated.
BUY this watch. Put it away. Your grandchildren will sell it for $200,000.00 Just like the Rolex.

I have atomic clocks throughout my house ..... so, why not a watch? It is worth a try for $20. The local stores around here charge about $30 or more for the same thing.

A manufactured need? When in the last 200 years has there not been a need for synchronized timekeeping? Railroad engineers used to adjust their pocketwatches at least daily, right?

For me, the point of an atomic watch isn't to keep regular time, it's to keep the *same* time as everyone else, right down to the second.

What's the drift on a modern quartz watch? If it synchronized once a week, that'd be plenty. A $6 Wal-Mart watch or a $500 designer watch may keep time equally well, but neither is useful if it's not set to the right time.

Hmmm. Well, I'm not sure about the rest of you, but I don't need a watch to be a scientific calculator. Have one, with buttons I can actually see. I don't need it to be a remote control for my tv/dvd/stereo. Have one of those too. I don't need it to control the lights - I have a flippy-floppy thingy on the wall that does that. I don't need it to start my car. If it would scoop snow and/or mow the lawn, now that would be nice, but that would be asking a bit much out of a $19 watch. No, I guess when I buy a watch, I kinda want it to tell me what time it is. Day of month and day of week is nice, too. Water resistant is also nice, in case I fall into the lake or something.

It looks like this watch would suit my purposes just fine. If you want jewelry, go to Mr T's web site, maybe he's selling off his gold chains. Get a life you guys.

So now I have 2 useless fossil watches that don't move or blink. I took it to 3 watch places and they all told me the same thing, we don't touch fossils.



I had a fossil watch, 6 or 7 years old now... hadn't worn in two and when i took it back out of the drawer it was left in i noticed the rubberish strap was torn ... sent it in for an out of warranty repair [$27] they replied they couldn't fix it but offered me a new watch of roughly equal value for the same repair cost.

pretty good service if you ask me.

Okay, I just bought one of these "ugly" watches for my 11 yo grandson. He skateboards and plays soccer, so if it's totaled I'm out only $25. And he can set it to my timezone so he knows when to call me! Sweet!

The end is near...drink big wine.
