Introducing the Roku Watch

Update: unfortunately the Roku Watch won’t be our newest product. Happy April Fools’ Day!

At Roku, we’re all about delivering the best streaming experience to your TV. But hey, why stop there?

Meet the Roku Watch®.

We know that nearly everyone loves watching TV at home on a big ol’ flat screen. The Roku Watch is for the rare individuals who enjoy squinting around a teenie tiny screen or like showing off their wearable tech.

The Roku Watch is the evolution of streaming. Now your Nicolas Cage movie marathons never have to stop. It includes:

  • A crystal clear 1 ½ x ½ inch screen
  • HDTV omnidirectional antenna
  • A Roku Remote for easy navigation (with optional belt clip)
  • A customizable strap (designer straps coming soon!)
  • 40’ power cord

It doesn’t stop there. The Roku Watch will also track your body’s inactivity and grant you rewards when you hit impressive milestones.

  • 10 inactive hours = one large pizza will automatically be delivered to your home.
  • 25 inactive hours = after we confirm you’re still healthy, we’ll send Jean-Claude Van Damme to watch Bloodsport or Double Impact with you.

The Roku Watch is $199.99 and will be available on Roku.com on April 31, 2014.

    It still is March 31st here on the west coast. You jumped the gun on the April Fools joke. Fail.

    • Kelly Ripa

      That’s probably why they released this on the 31st, so it wouldn’t be confused with an April Fool’s joke.

    • minnesota linux

      The world *does* revolve around you!

    • Louis

      You live on the west coast. fail.

      • gilahacker

        Sounds like you live on the East coast. Try not to freeze to death. :-P

  • Nina3

    You had me going until I noticed the size of the remote…

    • jkp

      The only problem I see is that the belt clip option on the remote should be standard issue!

    That antenna is a thing of beauty!

  • Jordan

    Truly? You have to be joking right?

    • giantslor

      Totally real, I hope you’ve put in your pre-order, there are only a few slots left.

    Really obvious April Fools joke, btw.

    • minnesota linux

      Oh. You’ve been helpful.

      • http://c0rinne.net Corinne

        It has an antenna sticking out of it. Did you need help with that?

        • giantslor

          Pretty sure that was sarcasm.

          • Guest

            Same here.

  • Calcifide by Fluoride

    Great, my english-reading cat can now operate my remote. Now, I’ll never get the remote back from him to watch human content again because this is so small that now he’ll be able to find really good places to hide it

  • William

    If you make the screen even smaller, it would fit better on my wrist.
