An Official ‘Escape From New York’ Smartwatch Is On Kickstarter


Fans of John Carpenter’s Escape from New York may get the chance to own a replica version of the watch worn by Snake Plissken in the film. The Ridgewood Watch Company is now gathering funds to make the watch a reality, though this version will have some notable upgrades over the one seen in the film.

The Lifeclock One is a fully licensed reboot of that watch but with a twist — it’s a countdown timer of course, but it also tells the time, date and much more. Best of all — it pairs with your iOS or Android device to give you all of the alerts for all of the cool phone functions that Snake would have killed for — push notifications from your favorite apps as well as incoming call and text message alerts. You also get step counting, weather, world clocks, camera control, stopwatch and much more.

Check out more pics and the campaign video below.
