Time Warriors are wristwatches used by the Autobots and some of their human allies. That's pretty much the long and short of it. One might imagine that they could stop time or reverse time or tell you the time out loud or something. You might even think they're Power Rangers-esque morphers that let you become a Transformer. But as far as anyone knows... no.

The Time Warriors arrived with the reinforcements from Cybertron, and the Autobots used them to coordinate their attacks on Decepticon bases.
The Autobots also made Time Warriors available to human allies, who used them to keep track of the time during their own missions. The nature of those missions is unclear; all that is known is that they were conducted while Decepticons were absent but expected to return.
Note: The human involvement is inferred from a blurb that conspicuously uses the second person, bringing the reader into the story as a nameless character on a mission. This would become common in S.T.A.R.S.-related fiction, where the reader is being recruited as a human ally. But this particular bit is more ambiguous because it predates the introduction of S.T.A.R.S. We retroactively apply the S.T.A.R.S. storytelling model here, but it could be interpreted differently.
- Time Warrior (1985)
- Time Warriors are watches that look like Autobot symbols. Pressing the mouth splits the faceplate to reveal the time. That's kind of like transforming?
- They were only available as a mail-away offer, advertised via various pack-in flyers.
