Timex Ironman iControl

Posted in Exercise Gadgets,iPod Accessories,Watches by Nino Marchetti on August 2nd, 2007

Timex Ironman iControlAnd here we thought people had finally run out of “i” words associated with iPod accessories? Guess not since watch maker Timex today announced the $125 Timex Ironman iControl.

The iControl, which functions as an “advanced sports watch,” is designed to wirelessly operate your Apple iPod. How it does this exactly we aren’t clear on – assume there will probably be an attachment for your iPod. Anyhow, the watch will let you control functions such as play/pause, volume and track forward/backward.

Posted in Nixon,Watches by Darrin Olson on July 7th, 2007

Nixon LoDown watch has tidal information for 200 beaches for 15 yearsThe Nixon Lodown watch carries tidal information on your wrist for 200 different popular beaches for the next 15 years. We have to say that it would be nice if there was a way to update the information beyond the set number of years or beaches. But, for those that do spend a lot of time in the surf at different places around the world this is way more convenient than carrying a chart or looking it up on the internet.

The Lodown shows the tidal height in numbers and graphically with little gray on black representation on the LCD screen. It will also tell you the date and time, has an alarm, timer and can be set to dual timezones since you’ll be likely traveling a fair amount to catch these beaches. It’s water resistant up …

Reactor Trident Watch features Never Dark illumination technologyReactor has added a new model to their lineup of tough and stylish sport watches, this one designed for use 24/7 in any type of lighting conditions, including no lighting conditions.

In its first stage of defense against the darkness the watch utilizes phosphorescent paint on the dial and hands which keep it bright for hours after exposure to any light source is gone. To back this up the Trident has tritium filled gas tubes which give off a fainter glow but will keep the dial illuminated enough to read the time for as long as 7 years.

The Reactor Trident is designed for the outdoor enthusiast with a scratch and shatter resistant glass face, …

Posted in Two-way Radios,Watches by Reuben Drake on June 3rd, 2007

i-Wrist Free Talker Two-way radioSure, just because it has the ‘i’ prefix on it doesn’t necessarily mean that this is a device that’s jumping on the iPod accessory bandwagon, and it’s sad that it makes us cringe with the thought that this is something marketed with some obscure, remote integration to the famed MP3 player.

Luckily that is not the case here, and the i-Wrist Free Talker is most likely got its name due to it’s personal use on your wrist. This walkie-talkie from Vavolo has a small design, almost small enough to look like a slightly over-sized wrist watch. Aside from telling the time, (yes it does have a time display) it’s main purpose is that of a two-way radio.

The i-Wrist supports communication through 22 different channels from up to just a little over 1.5 miles away. Probably the most interesting feature on this walkie talkie is …

Golf Swing Analyzing WatchThis golf swing analyzing watch from Hammacher Schlemmer uses 3 accelerometers built into the small frame to analyze your and improve your swing, and without a doubt looks better to us than some big contraption you wear to constrict your movements.

Seiko’s Electronic Ink Watch

Posted in Seiko,Watches by Chetz on April 24th, 2007

Seiko Electronic Ink WatchLooking to give your lady love (or yourself) something special to catch the eye of passersby? Perhaps you’ve found the gift when you lay your eyes on Seiko’s brand new Electronic Ink watch for ladies.

This gorgeous bracelet uses a proprietary material that undergoes an electrical charge, separating the white microcapsules from the black ones to generate the time that’s displayed on its surface.

The Electronic Ink watch has two modes: “efficiency”, which the time is displayed in an easy to read manner, and “mystery” mode which shows the numbers in a more exotic, elegant manner. It looks more like a piece of expensive jewelry than a watch, but the price tag ($2,000) for this titanium covered beauty is in the same altitude as other high end bling. Still, it’s certainly nice to look at on the wrist of someone you (and your credit …

OV-Watch Tells You When To Do It

Posted in Watches by Darrin Olson on December 31st, 2006

Fertility WatchWe’ve written about a number of cool gadgets in the form of wrist watches, and the OV-Watch is a unique addition to the list. The OV-Watch is a fertility prediction gadget that can be worn on the wrist to predict what days are the most likely to become pregnant. This in turn let’s you know what days to have sex, or not have sex depending on what your goals are.

The OV-Watch senses the increase in amount of chloride ions on the skin of the wearer, indicating up to four days in advance when they are going to be fertile. Due to this method, simply putting on the watch would not immediately indicate fertility since it needs to establish a trend to identify the increased chloride.

This OV-Watch inherently has some advantages over other fertility detection methods since it doesn’t measure temperature or require …
