Radioactive watch really isn't

But it does use atomic warning signs to tell time

AudioCubes

We may rail against watches that try to reinvent the way we tell time , but we'd never criticize one that provided important safety information. And what could be more important than radiation levels?

But the "Radio Active" stainless steel LED watch doesn't really measure radioactivity, though it does use some '50s-era atomic warning symbols to tell time. As much as we appreciate the effort, we're still not sure if this something we could use. "The design has nothing but signs and words," according to the description on AudioCubes. "However, it won't take long for you to figure the whole thing out." Don't count on it.
