The Tetris & Pong watch keeps you addicted

The Tetris & Pong watch

Anyone who has ever played Tetris and become totally absorbed in the experience knows that when you stop playing, those shapes can be seen in your mind’s eye for some time afterward. You can either quit cold turkey, or you can find a convenient way to play even more when there is no game console in front of you.

That’s where the Tetris watch comes in. It is Tetris in watch form and will keep any Tetris fanatic happily addicted when they should be getting work done. Why they even bother to put the time on, I have no idea. Time means nothing when you are in Tetris-land.

Robot watch transforms into a desk clock

Robot watch transforms into a desk clock

This great looking and versatile robot watch serves a double duty as both a watch and a desk clock. Just remove him from the wristband and stand him up. That’s not all he does. It can also be used as a keychain time piece and even a necklace pendant. That’s alot of uses for one little robot. The arms are fully posable as well as his headgear. I think the best part about him is that he looks cool with the clock on his chest.

How much would you pay for this much coolness in one robot? You can get it for a surprising $40. Comes in Silver and Gold tone as well as a pewter color. All look equally nice.

Wake up with the Natural Sleep Cycle watch

Natural Sleep Cycle watch

If you walk around feeling groggy and out of it all day, it may be because you are waking up right in the middle of your deepest sleep cycle. This also leads to grumpiness. It is far more ideal to wake up in one of your light sleep cycles, fully refreshed. That’s the idea behind the Natural Sleep Cycle watch.

It uses an accelerometer to keep track of small physiological changes that occur when you are experiencing light sleep. Then it wakes you when the moment is right. I hear you, you have a tight schedule and can’t be late for work. No worries. You can specify how long before your alarm it should start it’s calculations for the best time, from 10 to 90 minutes before.

Radioactive Danger watch is fun

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on November 5th, 2007

Active Reactor from TokyoFlashThis unique new watch from TokyoFlash is called the Active Reactor. While it might be a bit challenging trying to figure out the time, it puts a little fun into your day. I wouldn’t advise showing it off at the airport, lest they believe something is “armed” and attached to your wrist.

It will impress your friends though. And telling time with the interface can be done with a little brain power. Simply add up the various light sequences: 20 plus 10 plus 2 = 32 minutes. The Red Warning light marks 6 hours and the Danger gauge marks the other 6 hours.

MP4 4GB watch with FM transmitter
Looking for the ultimate multi-media player for your wrist? This one can even wirelessly broadcast music through a car stereo or portable radio with it’s integrated FM transmitter. It also has an embedded 4Gb flash memory, a 1.8″ 160×128 pixel OLED display which they say produces bright, vivid color images. You know, if you want to watch something on a really small screen.

It’s capable of playing MP3, WMA, MP4 music videos or movies, as well as displaying JPG photos, recording, e-book reading, and yes displaying the time too. As far as power, it’s got a built-in Li-on battery and it can still play while charging.

Tell time with the Stonehenge watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on October 26th, 2007

The Stonehenge watch actually tells timeJust when you think you’ve seen everything, some backwards thinker has put Stonehenge in a pocket watch casing along with a compass. It’s truly unique among watches, with the miniature rocks aligned up exactly as they are at the real Stonehenge.

The best part is that it actually tells time. You use the compass to find and face North. Then you insert the gnomon (The fancy stick in the middle. What do they teach you in school?) in front of the altar. Now, just look at the shadows that it creates and you will see the real time. Very cool. The kind of thing your friends will be impressed by. Obviously, with this watch you will be out of luck at night time or in the dark, but that’s the price you pay for nice things.

Guide Pro watch for the high-tech sportsmen

Posted in Outdoors,Watches by Conner Flynn on October 23rd, 2007

Guide Pro series of watches from OrigoSportsmen and adventurers love tech. Especially fishermen, when they haven’t had a nibble or bite all day. It can mean the difference between being bored to tears and catching that fish of legendary size. The Guide Pro series of watches from Origo can help. They use temperature and pressure sensors to read and analyze atmospheric data, so that you know when it’s the best time to fish or hunt. That way you are more productive and can spend more time doing other things.

Of course, it can also forecast weather using these functions. That’s not all it can do. The watch has an altimeter too, which has an accuracy of about 12 inches. It can graph your ascent or descent over 8 hours. But wait, there’s more. How about a compass? Yes, it has a compass, as well as other typical watch functions. No pricing available yet.

Wrist video and calling features

Hyundai GSM phone wristwatchThe day is rapidly approaching when the phone watch will be here. Well, it actually came a little while ago but we’re talking about the practical phone watch day that’s soon to come. Hyundai may be the leader of the pack with its W-100, a GSM phone that you wear on your wrist. The phone watch comes with a 1.3 megapixel camera, Bluetooth connectivity, microSD card slot, plays MP3 and video files and has a touch screen interface. It supports both the English and Chinese language so there’s that going for it too. Most of all we dig the design which doesn’t look too clumsy nor too calculator watch-ish. Loads of more photos after the leap.

Nike Amp+ Sport Remote Control watch released

Posted in Exercise Gadgets,Watches by Darrin Olson on October 5th, 2007

Nike Amp+ Sport Remote ControlWithout much fanfare Nike has let loose the new Nike Amp+ Sport Remote Control. The Amp+ wears on your wrist like a watch and actually will tell the time, but that’s the least impressive of its features.

The watch works in conjunction with the Nike+ iPod Sport Kit and Nike+ iPod Ready shoes (if you want shoes with a special pocket in your shoe for the sensor) to give you audible feedback while your walking or running of your time, distance, calories and pace. This is very convenient and saves you from toggling through menus and viewing the data on a little LCD screen. The display shows the time and when connected to your iPod nano will show navigation controls for the player. You can even set up a particular “power song” and hit a button to play it during the tougher times when you need a little extra motivation.

I’ve got to be somewhere when it’s 3 red, 4 yellow

Geomesh watch uses lights and colors to show the time.In the beginning there was the sundial to mark the hours that passed. Next came the analog watch with its winding gears and ticking seconds hand followed by the digital watch. You would think that telling time can’t get any simpler (or stranger) but then along comes the Geomesh watch from Tokyoflash.

The Geomesh’s gunmetal face is a mirrored grid of 27 LEDs running vertically and horizontally. By reading how many lights and what colors are arranged you can tell what time it is (sorry, not the date.) The watches come in either white, blue or multicolored light styles, so for instance if you bought the colored one a yellow light would demark 5 minutes of time while red indicates a single minute.
