The Time Traveller watch from Touch’N Go is not even a smartwatch. The exterior design of the watch look very plasticky, simplistic with a minimalistic packaging. The visual doesn’t really appeals most consumer who has strong desire in a flashy and elegant watch on their hand.

Here comes the Time Traveller from TNG. The Time Traveller has a reflective outer layer on the watch bezel that aims to mimic metallic like material but failed to impress us. However, the design is fairly simplistic with a good color combination on the watch faces and its outer casing.

The watch strap is also made out of plastic, which comes in black and white.

From a girl perspective, this watch face and sizing appears too manly. Looks like this watch is more likely to be suited for man.

Nevertheless, Time Traveller will be soon available with brown, pink and blue colour for selection. There might be a custom straps available somewhere in the future too.

In short, the Time Traveller watch is ideally for students who takes public transport in a frequent manner and hence it is to replace their daily Touch’N Go card. However, if you aim to buy this watch with the purpose of paying highway toll, it is not entirely feasible to do it as most of the highway users can’t even reach the TNG sensor with their fingertips, not to say wrist.

On another note, the Time Traveller comes with a price tag at RM239 but comes with a hideous look. If you have some extra cash to spend while not minding on its plastic toy-like design, you can have it for your own convenience.
