Yes, that is a Tamagotchi watch I'm wearing, thank you

It’s as badass as it looks and sounds.

“Is that a Tamagotchi watch???!!!?!”

Multiple strangers


It only took 25 years, but Bandai this fall released a wearable, functional watch version of its beloved Tamagotchi virtual pet.

The device, Tamagotchi Smart, has touchscreen controls, a pedometer, and inexpensive DLC in the form of themed memory cards to keep things fresh. You can also “talk” to your pet thanks to the inclusion of a little microphone.
