Fully-functioning Dick Tracy wristwatch radio is on the way

• By Ben Coxworth

Well, if a just-launched Indiegogo campaign is successful, you'll soon be able to get one that actually makes calls.

Officially licensed by Tribune Content Agency (which owns the rights to the comic), the Dick Tracy watch was created by Connecticut-based brothers Nick and Charlie Mathis. Just to make things a little confusing, they also introduced a Dick Tracy watch in 2016 – although it functioned solely as a timepiece.

By contrast, along with a quartz watch, the new model also has an integrated Bluetooth module, mic and speaker, which allow the user to place and receive calls on a paired smartphone. One USB-charge of its lithium-ion battery should reportedly be good for a full day of use.
