I am a big fan of hip-hop, not just the gangster rap, but the entire culture surrounding all the different versions of hip-hop from the old school to the underground from the west coast to the east coast, I love all the music. But almost as much as I like the music, I like the art forms within the society including graffiti and turntablism.
Back in the good old days if people wanted to remember something they tied a string around their finger to help them. I think that’s where the Multimedia Remote Watch got its inspiration. Sure, now you remember to feed the dog but do you remember where you left the TV remote when you got up to do it? Now you don’t have to remember because it’s always with you.
This watch appeals to my childish side but in a good way. It’s exactly as the suggests: a walkie talkie watch, which is also fun to say.
The Matrix watch is a little bit different then you’re normal run of the mill watch. It uses LCD bars at the top and bottom of its display to show you the time. Sound difficult? It isn’t.
I really like this concept watch from Nikita Golovlev. It’s a watch for the hearing impaired which can alert it’s wearer through vibrations of an alarm going off. This is a great way for those who live alone to remain safe.
Garmin showed off it’s Forerunner 405 watch and I must say it’s pretty awesome, and coming from someone who hates watches that’s saying something. Since it’s from Garmin, it is, of course, GPS enabled but it also has a lot of other good features like speed, distance and heart rate track.
I don’t wear watches. My cell phone works perfectly well as a clock. If I were going to buy a watch though, I doubt I’d spend more than $20 let only $25 million.
So we all can agree, for the most part, that Salvador Dali was an artistic genius right? Well, check out this watch that has him depicted on it with his mustache operating in halves as the hour and minute hands.
Check out this watch that also has a WiFi signal strength indicator built into it. I love watches, even more than that, I love watches that can do other cool things, such as this one with a WiFi indicator built in, all you have to do is push the button and it will give you 0-8 bars for signal strength.
So this watch has the analog arms (second, minute, and hour), but the face can change. It can be an analog time-telling face, a digital time face, or any number of other pre-programmed faces using the E-Ink display that makes up the face.
