More often than not, smartwatches and other wristband wearables are for communication and fitness tracking, but the Gameband smartwatch is taking the burgeoning piece of tech in a different direction. While the wristband offers many standard smartwatch features like music, notifications, a calendar, and a step counter, its key feature is that it gives users a slate of watch-optimized games.

Though the wrist provides relatively limited surface area for gaming, the Gameband smartwatch's titles need little space. That's because it offers classic Atari games like Pong, Crystal Castles, and Asteroids. Since these games have 8-bit graphics and simple interfaces, they're compact enough to play on a smartwatch comfortably. In total, there will be 20 mini games on the watch.
