Smartphones have taken over our lives so it wasn’t long before the introduction of smartwatches would soon turn our brains to complete mush but with all these amazing technological advances how could we dare say no to our consumer hunger?

I’m kidding, I think we still have control over our constant urges to be connected–for now. With the introduction of the new smartwatch that allows you to carry around classic video games it may be game over for competitors. Dedicated gamers are the crowd that the smartwatch industry will now have to keep a very close eye on as these new watches by Gameband, a smartwatch gaming platform that comes with 20 preloaded Atari classics delves headfirst into the market. The classics will include Pong, Breakout and Asteroids ready to play at your command. A second version of the watch will have an exclusive mini-game version of Terraria built in. Terraria blends elements of classic action games with the freedom of sandbox-style creativity to give users a unique experience.

There’s literally a watch for every personal style, and I’m a fan of the red and black center watch currently. I love the vintage style with a modern twist. This wearable resembles the Apple Watch with a 1.63-inch touch AMOLED display and Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity. Th Atari staples have been rewritten and optimized for the smaller display, so now gaming can be more intuitive than just porting around the home console versions of the games–perfect if you have a long commute on a train, and you don’t want to drain your phone battery. Hold my donut while I rush out and buy one of these amazing gadgets for myself.
