The original (Kronoform?) watches looked better in robot mode, I still have a KO of them.

This one has a tamagochi mode, too?

Wow it's like it stepped right out of 1980! Haven't seen a watch that chunky for years...

That's actually pretty cool though.

At least you can make the decepticon/autobot logo appear in the thing's stomach. Who am I kidding, this thing is terrible.

Meantime was more impressive than this...and could be adapted into a functional watch too...

I kinda like it. Looks fragile though.

can't they make it something extra cool like a touch screen? I wonder if I could upgrade it with touchscreen watch insides.

I agree, Meantime was the direction they should have gone with.

On a side note, I'm surprised this thing wasn't given a Convoy moniker, that's what they usually do to sell their crappiest ideas.

I had one of those when I was little. I wish they would make them. This one just isn't the same.

I was hoping that they'd be a little better detailed or painted or something. These just look too plain to be of any interest to me.

I considered getting one of these until I saw the kiddy Tamaguchi feature.

Wow, they need to work harder on those, they're craptacular.

Yeah, it's a box that tells time that happens to have little arms and legs. Very unexciting.

Reminds me of a Proof-of-purchase mail-away item in the 80's.

That sig is freaking hilarious!

Yea I was hoping I could buy a nice modern chronofrom watch but this is just tamagotchi crap.

It looks like the robots body and limbs are made of brushed metal, as well as the watch band. But the "tray" that the bot fits into for watch mode appears to be plastic.

It looks like it could stand to be a little sturdier in watch mode, but I think it's a pretty cool update of Kronoform. The head mold looks almost exactly the same. Hopefully, they will add more detail before it's released.

What an astounding marketing idea! Turn the original Kronoform design 90 degrees on it's mount, wait for another generation of consumers to come along and pray that the last generation of consumers doesn't crap all over the idea when they see it. All I have to say to the marketing dept. is..."How's that working out for ya?"
