Obaku V140G is the world’s thinnest sports watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on February 20th, 2011

We’ve seen all kinds of watches here at the Brick, some packed with awesome features. But it seems like the more features you add, the more it weighs your wrist down. That isn’t fun at all. It’s nice when a watch is light and thin. The Obaku 7140G claims to be the slimmest sports watch ever. It certainly looks like that’s true.

Being slim and light is exactly what you want in a sports watch when you are running or playing in a tennis match. Ideally you want something that you don’t even know you are wearing. The design is even sleek and stylish in black.

TV Remote Control Watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on February 13th, 2011

Hammacher has started offering this retro looking Television Remote Control Watch. It’s a universal remote control in a tiny compact package. It has six buttons on the bezel for essential functions like volume, power, channel up/down, play/rewind/fast forward.

It will control televisions, DVDs, or most other devices that use infrared signals. It also works as a normal digital watch with an alarm and a chronograph, but that’s not why you would buy it. The Television Remote Control Watch will cost you $99.95.

Haptica Braille watch for the blind

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on February 5th, 2011

Blind people need better watches to read the time. They have analog watches that require them to feel the bumps around the watch, but that is time consuming and inaccurate. Digital watches that read the time out loud are accurate, but not when there is noise around you.

Well, David Chavez created a Braille “digital” watch. The watch has a display for 4 different digits, allowing users to feel the bumps on the watch to get the time quickly and accurately. Thing is, David doesn’t have the funds to kick start the watch into production, so he is crowdsourcing the start up funds on Kickstarter.com. If you think the watch deserves the funding it needs, go to the Kickstarter website for more details and to make a donation.

FIRE concept watch is sure to be hot

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on January 27th, 2011

This concept watch is hot. The design is on fire. No really it’s named FIRE. It looks awesome and if it ever gets made for real it is sure to burn a hole in your wallet as well. The hour and minute hands are lit by LEDs that simulate torch-style cigarette lighters.

But sadly you can’t actually light a cigarette with it, still it is unique and we always love that. I guess a real lighter attached to your wrist is a bad idea anyway.

HorodronHD-01 concept watch with E-Ink display

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on January 13th, 2011

Sure you have many great watches to choose from these days, but what you want is something that will make you stand out from the crowd. Something like this HorodronHD-01 concept watch for instance.

Instead of an analog display, it features an E-Ink display that tells the time and also shows the date. But mostly it just looks cool and retro while also looking futuristic. We love the clean design.

Solaris V1 Solar-powered LED watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on January 13th, 2011

Everybody wants to be green these days, so cell batteries are a dying breed. More watches are being powered by the sun. And now a French designer has come up with an elegant solar watch design that features the solar panel right in the middle of the watch. It looks great.

The time is displayed by LEDs, with the hours on the outside in blue, while five-minute groups are shown in purple. Single minutes are displayed on the cross bars in the center.

Tokyoflash Kisai Console watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on January 12th, 2011

Tokyoflash has unveiled the Kisai Console watch, which looks pretty darn cool. This futuristic watch will cost you $200.64. As usual, you might have a hard time actually reading the time on this watch though. Hopefully it gets easier once you know how.

The hours are displayed on the numbers on the top half, while the minutes are shown on the middle and lower section. Who cares. You buy these watches because they look great, not because you want the time.

Swap Rebel USB Phone Watch, with GPS and Touch Screen Display

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on December 9th, 2010

Most people use their phones as a watch these days, but not as many use their watch as a phone. This is changing as watches can do more. The sWaP Rebel is first and foremost a watch. One that has cellphone functionality, a touchscreen color display, a built-in camera, FM radio and Bluetooth connectivity among other features.

The price isn’t too bad at £190 and you can choose from black, pink, orange, white and green colors, but it won’t replace your primary handset. It’s always nice to see watches doing more and more though.

Tokyoflash Kisai Satellite Watch now for sale

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on December 8th, 2010

Tokyoflash is always busy cranking out unique watches and their latest is the Kisai Satellite. You voted for it and now it is a reality. It will cost you $93 and it’s available in either black or white. Unlike most watches from Tokyoflash, it’s easy to see the time on this one.

The top circle on the face shows the hours, while the bottom left circle shows the minutes in groups of five and the bottom right circle shows single minutes.

Seahope Scope 2 Watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on December 6th, 2010

Seahope has unveiled their new Scope 2 watch from the EleeNo Cyber collection. It has an amazing retro-modern style that looks like it is straight from a Sci-Fi movie. We love this one.

It features a futuristic digital display with a visor that will display the time when you push the button. It measures 47mm x 41.5mm x 15mm and is currently available in Japan for 22,150 Yen or about $264. Sure, it’s pricey, but just look at that style.

Tokyoflash Kisai RPM watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on November 27th, 2010

Tokyoflash has released its latest watch design, the Kisai RPM. This is the first concept to become a reality from the Tokyoflash Design Studio Blog and it is based on an idea from a Tokyoflash fan from the UK, James Fursedon.

The Tokyoflash Kisai RPM is easy to read, unlike some of their watches. The hours are shown on the inner ring, while five minute intervals are shown on the outer ring. Four single minutes are positioned at the top of the display along side the AM/PM indicator. Lights showing the current time will flash for several seconds to make it easier to read.

Nooka Zub Zayu Watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on November 4th, 2010

The Zub Zayu is the latest timepiece from Nooka and is part of the Zub collection. Zayu comes from the Japanese word, “Sayu”, meaning left and right, which is appropriate because the Nooka Zub Zayu is an asymmetrical watch with some interesting features.

Some of those features include the display with the hour “time capsule” graphic, an ergonomic asymmetrical design and a curved case back for a comfortable fit. We just like it because it’s different. The Zub Zayu is the first Nooka watch with a “sleepmode” to conserve the battery when not in use.

Tokyoflash Kisai Wasted watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on November 2nd, 2010

The Kisai Wasted is a new watch from the folks over at Tokyoflash. It’s available in black or white and sports a streamlined plastic case and a strap finished in gloss with matte detail. This one was specially designed to fit most wrists perfectly, no matter the size.

The smooth translucent lens allows you to see the somewhat spooky looking layout of the time right under it. A touch of the button initiates the twisted display and the current time will flash for a short time. Hours are shown on the outside in the same position as numbers on a clock, groups of five minutes on the inside and single minutes in the center from bottom to top.

KWID watch uses an hourglass to tell time

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on November 1st, 2010

The concept of “time” is a hard one for kids to grasp since their minds have yet to develop fully, so we better start training them with the KWID. The KWID is a watch that comes with a digital hourglass for a more visual and easily understandable representation on just how long a time period is.

So when you tell them that they have five minutes to clean up their toys, they can see just how quickly the minutes will vanish. Then once your child grows and understands time, the KWID watch comes with a traditional clock face which shows off the time displayed.

Tron inspired LED Watch from Tokyoflash

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on October 20th, 2010

The guys over at Tokyoflash never stop designing cool new watches. The latest one is part of their concept series, and it was designed by Scott from the UK. And we hope they put this one into production very soon, since it looks awesome.

The two rings (based on a Tron Disc) represent the minutes and the hours. The break in the ring represents the time in a normal clock face layout. We hope that they make this tron inspired LED watch asap.
