Here are two screenshots from Stranger Things S03E08 with the gadget in question:

wristwatch-style gadget depicting a triangle of sorts

same as above, angle slightly different

It does not look like a wrist watch. Is it maybe some kind of portable video game?

    @ShadowWizard agreed. This is happening more and more across the stack sites. It’s becoming a problem. Jul 20 '19 at 18:08
  • @MissouriSpartan dunno about other sites, yeah... meta is the place to discuss this but I'm afraid most people on this site don't ever visit meta. Jul 21 '19 at 9:25

This is a Nelsonic Q'Bert Wristwatch, sold by Nelsonic Digital. They were very popular, especially in the 80s for their game-themed wristwatches, wherein you could actually play the game on your wrist!

  • I had the Tetris game watch in the early 90s. Did not realise I was missing out on the Q*bert option.

    @NigelFds That’s a 1983 model watch on his wrist in 1985. Easily could have been found on sale. Jul 29 '19 at 12:24
