CES 2008

Posted in CES 2008,Exercise Gadgets,Garmin,GPS,Watches by Darrin Olson on January 7th, 2008

Garmin 405 Forerunner GPS watch tracks routes while running and uploads to your computer without wiresGarmin has a new exercise gadget debuting at CES this year called the Forerunner 405, designed for runners to aid in training and track routes. The new 405 is also a little more stylish than previous models with similar functionality, keeping the size to a minimum so the gadget doesn’t look like such a gaudy chunk of electronics on your wrist.

The Forerunner 405 is GPS enabled and allows outdoor runners to keep track of their speed, distance, heart rate and location through the watch. This model also features a cool new bezel around the display that lets users navigate and change settings on the watch by simply tapping it and sliding their finger around the metal circle.

The Seiko Discus: A new spin on the watch

A new spin on the watch

This stunningly good looking watch from Seiko Japan uses a series of spinning aluminum discs to display the time. And unlike many of the newer watches coming out of Japan these days, this one makes it very easy to read the time. Three numbered discs continuously rotate to display hours, minutes and seconds.

The Discus is part of Seiko’s Moving Image series, a line of automatic timepieces with great contemporary style. This one is available in two versions: one with a stainless body and white face, and one with a black metal body and a smoked glass face. It’s amazing what they are doing with watches these days. Makes me wish I had 10 arms.

LED Binary circuit board watch is geek chic

LED Binary circuit board watch is geek chic

Like moths to a flame, the circuit board face and LED lights on this binary circuit board watch are sure to attract other geeks, who will surely compliment you on it and then quickly order one themselves. I don’t blame them. This is one cool watch. It displays time in binary format, using LED lights. The watch face contains 10 red LEDs that are used to indicate the numbers of the binary sequence (1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32) and the values of the lighted LEDs are added to determine what time it is.

The top row of LEDs is for the hour and the bottom row for the minutes. It shouldn’t take long to master the art of telling time in this fashion. Aside from it’s cool circuit board face and flashing lights,(They had me at circuit board) it also has a stainless steel back and casing. Did I mention that it’s water resistant to 3 atmospheres and comes with batteries. So you could probably take this thing to another planet and it would be ok. Great looking watch.

TimeFlex the stick on watch

TimeFlex the stick on watch

TimeFlex is a unique concept idea for the watch. It uses a “self-gumming” sticker(I know, that sounds wrong) like watch which is capable of sticking on to any surface like your hand, arm or even clothing. The idea is that sometimes you need a watch, but there are some situations where it’s not good to wear one. Like when you are swimming for instance or in a laboratory.

I don’t think we are likely to see this anytime soon and I can’t imagine any kind of a market for it. It’s basically a slightly thick band-aid that tells you the time. How many times have you cut yourself and simultaneously needed to know what time it is? Of course, maybe people want disposable watches for some reason I can’t fathom.

Wi-Fi detector watch finds signals, looks good

Wi-Fi detector watch

Finding a Wi-Fi signal won’t be a hassle anymore with this watch, plus it actually manages to look good. It will give you the wi-fi signal strength at the push of a button. The strength is displayed as a number from 0 to 8 and lets you know if you need to move a little closer to the access point.

The Watch also has some other features like an alarm and countdown timer, plus a bright EL backlight. To me it’s main selling point is that it actually looks good while finding Wi-Fi. It’s not just a weight for your wrist that’s been hit by the ugly stick and given a strap. The price is a very respectable $30. Never be without Wi-Fi again.

Vulcania might be the coolest watch ever

Vulcania might be the coolest watch ever

Clearly inspired by Captain Nemo’s adventures, this timepiece from HD3 Complication would look right at home in some steampunk Sci-Fi flick. It is so cool in fact, that only 11 were made apparently. Which seems appropriate. Only some ultra-secret society could have watches this cool.

Very nautical in theme, you can tell the time using the rotating wheel cylinders on the left with the minutes on the sextant-like disc. Each moving section is a work of naval engineering art. All of the working parts can be seen from the front and the rear through sapphire glass panels. Forget gaudy gold, the case is made of titanium and platinum. Whatever the materials, the look of this watch is simply stunning.

Tell time with your Oberon

Posted in LED,Watches by Chetz on December 17th, 2007

Oberon watch tells time with LED lightsIn William Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer’s Night’s Dream” the name of the King of the Fairies was Oberon. He is also the King of the Shadows so something dark might be befitting of a name worthy of this deity which is precisely what the makers of the latest new watch design from Tokyoflash were probably thinking. Like most of the watches offered by these fellows the Oberon dispenses with the tradition two hands and minutes/hours number divisions in favor of patterned LED lights. When you read the time on the Oberon you start by looking at the outer ring of LEDs to determine the hour, the second ring of lights determines what minute it is and the third inner ring is devoted for grouping minutes into blocks of ten. It might sound complicated but picking it up is fairly simple and only takes a few glances at your watch. The watch will also tell you what date it is, all you need do is press a button and you can do that by LED lights too.

Phosphor watches with E Ink display

PHOSPHOR watches with E Ink display

We may have to wait quite awhile for color e-ink displays, but in the meantime, B&W e-ink displays are hitting every product you can think of, including watches. The PHOSPHOR Ana-Digi Watch sports a traditional analog clock face with your typical hour, minute and second hands, with a digital e-ink display.

With the e-ink display, you can have a standard analog clock face, a digital face, or your choice of several other faces at the push of a button. It’s available for a hefty $250, but at least for that price you have a choice of leather or polyurethane band. It’s not a bad looking watch. I like it, but it seems like they could have done something a bit cooler, instead of simply slapping “E-Ink” on the face. After all, with E-Ink technology you can finally make branding a product a little cooler.

Voice recording spy watch is Bond’s best friend

Posted in Voice Recorders,Watches by Conner Flynn on December 11th, 2007

Voice recording spy watch

This watch not only looks stylish, but it could theoretically help you save the world from an evil mastermind. Even James Bond needs the help of gadgets from time to time.(Every movie) It includes 1GB of flash memory and a mic allowing it to record up to 500 hours of audio. So when the conversation with the villain goes something like, “Do you expect me to talk?”, “No Mr. Bond, I expect you to die!”, you can record it all and share it with your CIA or MI-5 friends.

The rechargeable battery is rated for about 9 hours of recording time, but it only takes 2 hours to fully recharge. To transfer files and charge, it uses a mini USB port and it also has a headphone jack for playing back audio.

Oberon LED watch from Tokyoflash

Oberon LED watch from Tokyoflash

The Oberon LED watch is certainly easy on the eyes. It’s like wearing a small starfield on your wrist. Any watch that looks like it has stars on the face catches my attention right away. It looks very stealthy with it’s white LED display and streamlined black stainless steel body and strap. The outer ring of lights tell you the hour, the next ring is for single minutes, and the third shows minutes in groups of tens.

You can read the date in the same way. It takes some getting used to, but it’s worth it. Aside from looking awesome, it’s water-resistant down to 50 meters. The price is about $135.

Tag Heuer mobile phone watches

Tag Heuer mobile phone watches

If you like wearing a phone on your wrist like Dick Tracy or Buck Rogers, but hate it when people ask you why your watch looks so strange, you’ll like this new Tag Heuer watch/phone. The watch maker has officially announced the Tag Heuer mobile phones. As far as looks go, it is heavy on the watch side. You wouldn’t know it was a phone at all by looking at it. In fact, the design is 3 years in the making as they wanted to streamline this new breed of mobile phone.

Though it seems that nothing has been finalized yet, it looks like the watches will include a touchscreen display, a speaker and vibrate mode, stereo bluetooth, an MP3 player, and a kinetic power source.

Potty Time watch lets kids know when to go

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on November 30th, 2007

Potty Time watch

The Potty Watch from Potty Time is designed to help young parents potty train their kids without having to go potty themselves. The watch is worn by the toddler, and plays music and flashes lights in 30, 60 or 90 minute intervals and then resets itself automatically.

When the lights flash, that’s the signal to drop what they’re doing and head towards the potty. What an amazing concept, you not only teach the little rug-rat to go potty, but you teach him that gadgets are fun. Next thing you know, you have bred a good little consumer.(Who can relieve themselves no less) The only downside that I see is if they become too dependant on the watch as they grow. Just imagine in 20-30 years, as businessmen and women everywhere rush to the bathroom the minute their watch beeps.

Exmocare watch tells someone who cares

Posted in Health,Healthcare,Watches by Conner Flynn on November 23rd, 2007

The Exmocare watch

The Exmocare watch has a sort of sporty look, but sports is not what they had in mind. It knows how you are feeling and wants to send that info to someone who cares about you using e-mail or IM. Someone like a relative of caregiver.

The watch uses infrared LEDs to measure the heart rate and its variability. It can also process galvanic skin response that signals the emotional state of the wearer. Another feature is the on-board accelerometer that detects movement. When the Exmocare watch is worn over time, it learns to recognize the wearer’s baseline physical state. That’s how it knows when your vitals deviate too much. This could be very beneficial to those elderly who do not get checked in on very often.
