Another watch we love to hate

Bangles aren't enough to make a good watch

Red5

As we admired Seiko's e-ink watch last week, we'd almost forgotten about the LED timepiece trend that we've come to despise. Then, only a few days later, we were treated to the unfortunate image of the "Pixel Watch," which also takes a bangle-bracelet form while resembling one of the most confounding LED designs we've ever seen.

This unsightly wrist-beast boasts electro-luminescent technology to display the time, according to Red Ferret, though it frankly doesn't matter to us because we couldn't decipher it anyway. But we should be fair about its design: In case you're not into hospital white, this timepiece also comes in two other crowd-pleasing colors: brown and pink. Can you say " Zune "?
