Diaspora, The Open Facebook Alternative, Soars Past $50,000 In Micro-Funding [Update: Now Past $100,000]

The Cadence Wrist Rocket is a digital sports watch, with a bit of a twist on the standard square design. It’s everything you expect in a sports watch; it’s water resistant, has a stopwatch, countdown timer, an alarm, and a resin body and strap. It’s quite a large watch, but that’s not really a bad thing because that makes the display easy to read.

It’s the display that’s worth noting on the Wrist Rocket, it’s very easy to read, despite the fact that it’s curved slightly at the top and bottom. I’m particularly impressed with the dot-matrix style LCD, it really makes the Wrist Rocket stand out from the other watches in this market segment. Over all the Cadence Wrist Rocket digital watch is just your standard LCD sports watch, but the large case, unique styling, and the $49.99 price make it a good value. I’m wearing one right now and I’ve really grown to like it.

In fact, I like it so much that I want to share one with you! Cadence was kind enough to agree to give one away to our readers, so if you want to win one, just leave a comment at the bottom and you’ll get your chance.
