Casio AT-550 Touch Screen Calculator Watch (1984)
The AT-550 was an incredible watch for its time, or even for today. It had a capacitive touch screen, and that was used to operate the built-in calculator.

To enter numbers and the numerical operators, one just “wrote” them with a finger, by tracing the appropriate shape on the watches crystal.
