Washington: Imagine if you had a watch to tell you the exact seconds, minutes, days and years left in your life?

A new digital wristwatch can help users determine how long they will live, it has been claimed.

Wearers of the watch called `Tikker` are required to fill out a personal questionnaire on their health history and age.

This sets a timer which shows the exact seconds, minutes, days and years left in their life, `Mashable` reported.

Designers of the watch say their intention is to help users avoid wasting time in their lives.

"I think we can have a better life, and make better choices, if we are more aware of our upcoming expiration. It gives us perspective, the little stuff suddenly doesn`t seem so important anymore. That`s why I see Tikker as a happiness watch," Fredrik Colting, Tikker`s creator said.

The watch also comes with a questionnaire booklet called `About Time` which helps users calculate the time they are left with.
