New “Death Watch” Is Creepy
I wonder how much “time” is left on this dumb product. Now you can purchase a new watch that will countdown the time until your death. Sky Mall magazine is marketing the new watch called the “Tikker”. Through the use of statistics, plus your own “personal health algorithm”, the Tikker figures out what your life expectancy is and counts down how many years, months, days, minutes and seconds you have left in your life.
The watch sells for $79-99. Their marketing calls it a “happiness watch” because it’s supposed to inspire you to live life to the fullest. Really? It seems kind of gimmicky to me and probably would make for a poor-taste gag gift. I seriously doubt anyone would really want to own something like this. It’s just creepy.
