Any watch can tell time. The

iBeam Watch

also can magnify what you're reading and send out a helpful stream of light.

Press a little button at the top right side of the watch, and a tiny LED spotlight illuminates a menu, a keyhole - or your path if you aim your wrist just right. The light shuts off automatically after 30 seconds.

Press a button at the bottom right of the watch, and a 3x magnifying lens pops up from the watch face, making menus and maps easier to read. The watch comes in analog or digital models, with a leather or metal band, in men's and women's styles. Battery must be replaced professionally.

iBeam watches start at $59.95 at www.readingglassworld.com, or call Serve Right, 1-800-635-1941.
