For the low price of $ 2,150, you can act out Bowser’s wildest fantasy and keep Mario on your wrist forever. TAG Heuer, a Swiss luxury watch maker, is partnering with Nintendo to create a Mario-inspired smartwatch that hits the market on July 15th.
In addition to Mario Pipe, Super Star, and Super Mushroom on the bezel, the watch also has a customizable screen that lets you choose from a variety of Mario-themed digits, one of which only shows Mario standing there. It kind of reminds us that he is caught behind a painting in Super Mario 64 DS
According to the website, you can unlock new animations and “achieve your step goals with surprising twists”. For example, if you hit a quarter of your daily step goal, Mario will climb up with a mushroom. When you reach 100% of your daily activity goal, Mario will jump on the legendary final flagpole.
The watch is compatible with apps like Google Pay and a wellness app to track daily activities like calories or steps taken. There’s also a golf app in case you want to pretend you’re playing Mario Golf in real life.
This watch is still way cheaper than buying some Mario games these days. Still, we can’t help but wonder if Mario won’t get lonely without Luigi in there?
