'Scope' watch is fashion, not function

It looks cool, but we can't figure out how it works

As fond as we are of new watch designs these days, we feel compelled to voice one minor concern: We can't figure out how they work.

And we don't think we're alone. Our evidence: This "Scope Silver Metal Belt Watch" from AudioCubes offers instructions on how to read the time.

According to the LED watch's product description, "It uses the idea of intersection between the horizontal and vertical lines to mark the time." Um, right. Call us old-fashioned, but we think it's asking a bit much for us to learn how to tell time all over again. That's too high a price to pay for us, even if the scope watch costs a relatively reasonable $169.
