Equalizer watch has new look for summer

Who knew the Equalizer watch would be such a big hit? I mean, it must've been for that wacky watch designer, Tokyoflash, to come up with an updated version with a snazzier looks, the Equalizer 2. Like its predecessor, the EQ2 has a face with columns of lights that pop up and down, but the new version angles the columns for a 3-D effect and uses brighter lights cooler green. Reason enough for an upgrade, no? And yes, it still tells time by whisking away the lights when you press the button — except for two that indicate the hour and minute. The new Equalizer comes in silver or black; you can order yours online now for $160 or so ($140 before June 2nd). It could be the perfect gift for that stereo fanatic you know.
