** To the point that in ''Film/GoldenEye'', when Bond uses his laser watch to cut his way out of a railway car, there was no previous scene of him getting from Q Branch; to the average audience, ''of course'' he would have such a gadget on him. Furthermore, the villain (an ex-MI6 agent himself) took away his watch because [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy he knew it was a gadget of some kind]].

* A one-shot gadget used on an episode of ''Series/MacGyver'' was a wristwatch with a concealed tracer carried by Pete during a hostage exchange (for Mac to follow at a safe distance). When the hostage takers end up being DangerouslyGenreSavvy enough to force Pete to get rid of all of his clothes (and later to change cars), Mac is forced to keep giving chase through other methods.

* In ''[[Anime/ScienceNinjaTeamGatchaman Gatchaman]]'', The Science Ninja Team needed their watches (sometimes called "bracelets" but hey, it was the seventies) to transform, plus they contained a communications device.
** ''And'' a gadget that could be slipped in to track radio waves. But when that was being used, the communicator didn't work.

* Real spies used at least two different models of gadget watches: one was a pretty obvious photographic camera, the other had a hidden microphone designed to be used with an external recording device.
** Viktor Suvorov described how during his training he used a watch with a microphone. Apparently, using it during a dinner was a mistake - all the clinking of the cutlery made the speech difficult to hear.

* The [[http://www.samsung.com/global/microsite/galaxynote3-gear/ Samsung Galaxy Gear]] is meant to both [[{{Defictionalization}} Defictionalize]] and [[ParodiedTrope parody]] this trope. It's basically a cell phone on a watch. In fact, it is {{lampshaded}} [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f2AjPfHTIS4 in of the commercials]].
** A bit of FridgeLogic kicks in as the commercial features a little-known wrist communicator from ''Film/StarTrekTheMotionPicture'' instead of the iconic flip-top-style communicator. Why? Because the classic communicator design has been so thoroughly [[{{Defictionalization}} defictionalized]] that it's already (in the era of smartphones) become outdated. (Also of course because wrist-mounted communication is the whole point of the exercise.)
