Casio Pro Trek Smart Wear OS watch has potential weeks-long battery

Casio revealed a smartwatch this week with Google Wear OS on-board - and metal outside. This smartwatch was revealed with three color options for exterior casing metal - black, blue, and orange. This is the sort of smartwatch you'd wear if you were risking your life to go on a James Bond-type adventure scaling the fully-vertical side of a jagged rock-bottomed crevice. It'll survive more inclement weather than you can.

TRIWA x Humanium Metal Hu39 watch Review

TRIWA x Humanium Metal Hu39 watch Review

The Hu39 is a watch made by TRIWA with the melted metals of illegal firearms: Humanium Metal. It's a rare opportunity to behold a piece of hardware in which the materials are more meaningful in their delivery than the product which they create.

If only they had a winning brand name.

Ressence Type 2 is a smartphone-pairing mechanical watch

These days, there's little middle ground between traditional mechanical watches, and the modern features offered by smartwatches.
