    My trusty Nike Triax (100 lap) finally gave up after 4 years of long use ( the plastic strap broke)

    I am currently in the market for a new watch. The criteria are

    a) not a normal watch
    b) lights up

    so far the ones ive looked are

    a) Blue LED binary watch

    http://www.thinkgeek.com/gadgets/watches/6a17/

    pros : definately techie looking
    cons : getting way to many "geek comments"... heh it might be too geeky

    b) Casio analog/digital watch

    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/t...9?_encoding=UTF8&n=3889331&s=jewelry&v=glance

    pros: looks good, definately differetn
    cons: people might wonder why its digital and analog

    C) Skagen men's super slim watch

    http://www.bluenile.com/product_det...annel.asp&page=1&col=2&row=1&pos=2&set_shape=

    pros: very slick looking watch
    cons: no light :(

    D) Pimping aint easy watch by PIMP

    http://www.mobilemag.com/content/100/335/C2928/

    pros: 72 LED droool
    cons: expensive ( at the moment out of budget)


    My budget is 100 USD so if anyone can help me find other watches or has any comments I would appreciate the help

    I've been beating the crap out of a Timex DATALINK for about 5 years now & it's never failed to function. Not sure about their USB loader for the new ones, mine recieves data from the monitor.

    heh ok more clarification, I dont need any other gimmick except lighting
    so no

    tvs, usb, mp3, voice recorder, video camera. etc options needed (not looking for anything bulkier than a normal watch)

    Binary watches are cool, but far from practical. I know binary, but still took a few seconds to work out the time onthe damn thing. Had it for 2 months and gave up wearing it all the time. Telling the time should be an instant thing, the binary watch makes it a timely pain in the a**.

    You know with a couple of ICs you can build your own binary clock. It's not a watch but I guess it still looks the shizzle ;)

    EDIT// here's the link: http://home.arcor.de/avrwakeup/binclock.html Click on "Schaltung" for the schematic ;)
