Tikker counts down to when your ticker gives out.

You're about to lose your temper over a tech support call that's dragging on when you look down at your wrist and see a reminder of your mortality. Maybe you should spend your limited time feeling happy, rather than pissed off, you think. This little wake-up call comes courtesy of Tikker, a watch that counts down to your death.

The Kickstarter watch is supposed to help you keep things in perspective. That twit who just cut you off in traffic isn't worth chasing down and flipping off because you only have 32 precious years left, and you really should do something more positive and productive instead.

Tikker could have the opposite effect in certain situations, though. For example, you're waiting in line at DisneyWorld as your day slowly slips away. You might snap and start yelling, "Hurry up! I've only have 32 years, 12 hours, and 43 minutes to live!"
