Oh, Motorola. You’ve now been featured in two out of two of our Throwback Thursdays. Who remembers the TIMEX Beepware watch? A collaboration with Motorola, the Beepware pager watch had a monochrome display and weighed around 1.3 ounces. But that’s boring, the insane part was that it was a full-fledged one-way pager with service through Skytel. You could get weather updates through it, people could email you, and you could of course make use of an operator dispatched page if you signed up for that service. The watch was first made available in 1997.

BGR Throwback Thursday is a weekly series covering our (and your) favorite gadgets of yesterday and yesteryear.
