Tokyoflash Retrofit Watch

Tokyoflash Retrofit Watch

Time and tide waits for no man, they say.  Well, I can't help you with the tide - ever since my grandmother was swallowed practically whole by some quicksand during a holiday on the East coast of Scotland I've been petrified of the sea - but time, yes, I am your wristwatch saviour.

Run, don't walk, to Tokyoflash and snap up this chunkily gorgeous retro-styled timepiece.  Slick with bargain juice at a paltry $128, it's a great two-fingered salute to the drably predictable "waterproof to 100m" multi-dial divers' watches men are supposed to like.

Shine activity tracker hits Apple Stores to challenge Flex and Fuelband

Activity tracker Shine is headed to Apple Stores this week, with the discrete wearable the latest option in health monitoring to follow in the footsteps of Nike's Fuelband and Jawbone's UP. Initially funded by an Indiegogo campaign late last year, Shine is arguably the most attractive of the health dongles we've seen so far, being a simple metal disc with hidden LEDs to show your daily progress or the current time.

Pebble talks developers, apps, watchfaces and future-proofing

Pebble talks developers, apps, watchfaces and future-proofing

The first Pebble developer SDK is already in limited testing, the company has confirmed, allowing coders to create custom watchfaces for the smartwatch. Pebble is paving the way for new features that won't be in the initial feature-set, too; although it uses Bluetooth 2.1 to connect currently, there's actually a Bluetooth 4.0 chip inside for lower-power wireless in the future, and there's an ambient light sensor which developers will also be able to tap into. On the software side, there's If This Then That integration for extra flexibility. Read on for more details.

4-Bit Chronograph Watch talks UTC time in binary blocks

So, you like the idea of a Tokyoflash watch and some binary goodness to your timekeeping, but you either can't face decoding LEDs every time you want to know if you can stop work, or need something that looks a little more formal than the bridge of the original Star Ship Enterprise. Enter The Cadence Watch Company and its 4-Bit Chronograph Watch, which pairs analog hands with binary notation for a more subtle celebration of your geekiness.

Azimuth SP-1 Landship watch looks like a tank

Azimuth SP-1 Landship watch looks like a tank

I just posted up story about a strange wall clock, and then I ran across a cool wristwatch that looks like an old tank. The watch is called the Azimuth SP-1 Landship. I really like the design and it looks like an old tank from bygone eras and was, in fact, modeled after early 20th century landships, which were apparently, what tanks were called back then. The watch is really cool, and it is easy to tell time on so no Tokyoflash instructions are needed to tell someone what time it is.

Eclipsion wall clock gives approximate time only

Eclipsion wall clock gives approximate time only

The geek and design world has its fair share of odd clocks and wristwatches. Generally, the things are very hard to read, and if you need the exact time, you may be out of luck. If you only need to know that it's about 4:30 and not that it's 4:35 you can get by with most of these clocks and watches though. A new wall clock concept has surfaced from designer Jay Jiwoong Baek and its cool looking. The Eclipsion Wall clock reminds me of what a Tokyoflash wall clock might look like.

HorodronHD-01 Concept Watch Features E-Ink Display

Extravagant watches are becoming a normal, every day occurrence. With companies like Tokyoflash creating some of the most unique, and hard-to-read watches out there, it's good to see that some future watches will still be able to tell us time in a more direct fashion. The HorodronHD-01 concept watch focuses more on the aesthetic appeal of its design, instead of beautiful lights to grab a potential customer's attention.
