The Wrist Rocket is a large digital watch with modern styling. The case measure in at 45mm, and it looks even bigger. It features a resin strap that's integrated into the plastic case. The design makes for a large wrist presence, and the light-weight materials make for a comfortable fit. The large dot-matrix LCD is the most prominent feature of this watch.
The Cadence Watch Company is based in Philadelphia, PA. They have released several models of watches over the last few years. Most are aimed at competitive rowers on crew teams. They feature counters that help keep track of the rowing pace. The Wrist Rocket is a departure from those types of watches though for this company.
Take a look at the video review to see everything the Wrist Rocket has to offer.

The watch in this review seems to have developed a problem with a couple of the pixels in the display (mainly in the top left area). It's hard to say how widespread of a problem this is with these watches, and it might just be a temporary glitch. These watches are all manufactured in China.
The look of this watch might not be for everyone, but it's nice that it offers something different. It will be good to see what Cadence develops in the future.
The current price for this watch is $65 USD. And the red rocket watch stand sells separately for $10.
