For the too lazy to click crowd, the blockchain technology is the certificate of authenticity or whatever, to prevent counterfeiting. Not any functionality of the watch itself.

The fact that companies have considered and implemented a block chain for a physical device fills me with dread. Imagine some server farm somewhere, just burning cycles to confirm that yes, that is indeed a Cyberpunk 2077 watch that you paid too much for, on your wrist.

Just when you think humanity couldn't get any more retarded... Welp, how about wasting electricity and resources to certify your goddamn watch is "genuine".

Fuck me...

This seems like an actual useful use of blockchain - as long as their using one of the "green" blockchains.

I don't know about this particular case, but the bitcoin blockchain is being used today for verification purposes. For example OpenTimestamps.org for verifying timestamps for documents.
This is possible since the whole history of the chain is public and can be trusted to be tamper-proof.
