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.
It connects via USB, and compared to some of the other USB watches I have seen, this one actually has some class to it. It’s still kind of ugly with that large blank space at the bottom of the face, but it’s a step in the right direction.
I don’t know if the USB cable is built in, or if there is a mini USB female port in the side of the watch where a cable would connect the watch to your PC. Regardless, I like the idea of combining flash storage with other objects of use, just carrying a flash drive, its easy to lose, but put that flash drive on your wrist and make it both a fashion accessory and a functional time-telling device, and you are far less likely to forget or lose it.
I don’t wear watches but this one just might change my mind. Nixon has put out a watch that allows you to play a couple of retro games, Tetris and Pong. While normal watches just tell time, the Nixon watch actually lets you waste it. Just think of all the hours you can see pass you buy while living out the dream of gaming 24/7.
I live in Indiana, which for those that don't live here, we don't exactly get earthquakes. I remember getting a tremor once that barely even registered on the Richter Scale and people talked about it for months. However, those that live in areas like Japan have to worry about them quite often. In places like that, every few seconds can make a difference. That's why someone created this cool watch.
The Seismic Watch was developed by Citizen of Japan to give you a small warning of an impending quake so that you can alert others and get to someplace relatively safe. When a quake is detected by the Earthquake Early Warning system, it transmits a signal to the watch to alert you. It actually goes a step further, and sets the minute and second hands so that they give you a countdown to when the quake will hit. Now that's an awesome watch.
First LG partnered with Prada, now they are apparently doing deals with Rolex. For those of you that recognize the name but can’t put a face to it, look to your wrist if your are upper management and your boss ever gifted you a watch.
Yes that’s right, now LG is working with the watchmaker to make a new phone. They recently showed it off, but photos were prohibited, so all you get is a Rolex logo for now. But, there is apparently a centerpiece on the phone which is a real Rolex watch face embedded in the casing and surrounded by luxury leather on the outside.
Sure they are aimed at golfers, but I’d wear one and I have never been any further into a golf course than one trip to the driving range and putting greens a long time ago. They are covered in gold and diamonds and they tell the time.
There are actually two watches, a mens and a womens, not much of a difference, just something of note. That means that the Omega Constellation (as in lots of diamonds) series got two new additions.
The fashion for strange, almost unreadable watches continues with Erich Lacher's ABACUS - normally the handless face is playground to a tiny ball bearing that rolls around as you move your arm, but hold it horizontal and still for long enough and magnets underneath will drag the ball to indicate the correct time.
These robot watches from Japan can serve multiple purposes, a watch, a desk clock, a keychain time piece, or even a necklace pendant. The robot tells the time and has bendable arms and headphones.
You could feasibly put a key ring, D-ring, or necklace chain through the headphones. The robot pops out of the wristband and can stand on its own two to act like a desk clock, even though it would be a really small one.
I found a list of the top 8 most complex watches in the world the other day. I am a pretty big fan of good watches, chances are I am not talking about that one your aunt got you last Christmas, and if I am, is anyone in your family adopting 21 year olds?
The one at the top of the list is made by a company called HD3 Complication. It’s called the Vulcania. It was designed with Jules Verne in mind, and with a bi axial tourbillion. I am not entirely sure what that is, but it’s in several of these watches. Anyways, the best part about this watch is that it costs 166,500 pounds, which means you can double that number to get an estimate of price in USD.
