You need to be fairly tech-savvy to get the most out of the Solder: Time II. This geeky watch from Maker Shed is designed to be hacked. The Arduino-based interface can be programmed to display games, make custom sounds and display messages.

Programming the Solder: Time II watch isn't as easy as hooking it up to your computer via USB and writing fun messages using a word application. You'll need some knowledge of programming to get the most out of this watch. You'll need some DIY skills as well to build this timepiece. A soldering iron, solder and flush cutters are needed to piece the Solder: Time II together. If you really enjoy DIY projects and programming, then for $59, this watch can be yours.
