Combo watch-remote for extreme TV

When you're sick of losing the remote in the cushions.

If you're sick of losing the remote (correction, remotes ) between the sofa cushions or anywhere else, you're not alone . Even so, we're not sure we'd go so far as to strap them to our wrists.

Extreme TV viewers, however, may find this item of interest. Hailing from China, this remote control watch claims to work with most major brands of TVs and DVD players, commanding functions from a small touch-screen LCD that's backlit for use when you've got the mood lights on. But as Technabob notes, the face is so small that you might miss the controls even with a stylus.

Still, it could come in handy especially if you insist on watching in the dark, which tends to stymie the location of lost remotes in our experience. And even if that doesn't work out, you can still use it as a watch. What do you expect for $6.24 anyway?
