This watch will estimate your life expectancy, then count down to your death. Awesome.

It’s being dubbed ‘the death watch’, and it’ll freak you out. It’s the brainchild of Swedish inventor Fredrik Colting, and it uses information on your lifestyle to calculate your life expectancy. Then, it’ll count down to your inevitable demise.


Users are asked questions about their lifestyle, including medical history, whether they’re smokers and/or drinkers, and whether any family members have had diseases such as cancer and diabetes.

It’s currently selling at £49.99 after getting all the funding it needed through Kickstarter.

Colting says: ‘Remember, it’s really not about how much time you have, it’s what you do with it,’ he says.

Cool, bro.
