The watch has some familiar Mario symbols engraved in its bezel: a Super Mushroom at 3 o’clock, a pipe at 6 o’clock, a Super Star at 9 o’clock and, finally, the mast at 12 o’clock. These are meant to track your daily step goal and play a corresponding animation when you reach each sub-goal.
The exterior of the watch is mostly black and red with brushed metal on the side. There is the Mario M engraved in the crown on the side. And, of course, several Mario-themed dials are preloaded:
