Children of the ’90s, rejoice! Your favorite digital companions are set to return later this year. To celebrate Tamagotchi’s 25th anniversary this winter, Japanese toy maker Bandai is resurrecting the digital pets as a wearable for your wrist.
Rounder than the original egg-shaped keychains, new Tamagotchi Smart devices feature new characters and items, as well as touch and voice controls so you can lovingly stroke and talk to your virtual ward. Perennial functions like a pedometer, digital clock, and the option to pair with a friend are also included, but it would be a stretch to call this a smartwatch.
