Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on October 5th, 2009

Kempler unveils W PhoneWatchKempler & Strauss has just unveiled the W PhoneWatch, which looks like a great watch/phone. It’s similar to the LG GD910 but smaller. Despite the small size, no stylus is needed for the touchscreen interface. What you get is a full media phone with 4GB of storage and a microSD card slot and it will play videos and music.

But why stop there? It can also use its camera for video recording. Bundled with the W PhoneWatch is a matching Bluetooth headset called the Communicator. The phone is a quad-band GSM device and should work on AT&T and T-Mobile for voice. They don’t mention EDGE or 3G for data.

Pierre Junod Eris Planetary Sphere watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on July 7th, 2009

Pierre Junod Eris Planetary Sphere watchThis watch is shaped like a planet. Or maybe a small moon. Wait, that’s no moon. It’s the Death Star. You can tell by that trench. Alright, it was named after the recently discovered dwarf planet. The Pierre Junod Eris watch tells time using a pair of rotating hands that float through the equator of the globe.

The orange top pointer shows the minutes, while the hours are shown on the white lower pointer. Each timepiece is made from a dramatic anthracite anodized aluminum case with a curved mineral glass crystal to protect the hands. A battery-powered Swiss movement keeps the time. But how do you wear a small planet?

Ants Watch will make your skin crawl

Ants Watch will make your skin crawlAt first glance, you might think that the ant watch is from Tokyoflash, but it’s actually from Seahope. It looks pretty confusing. Even more confusing than Tokyoflash watches.

I’ve looked at the image for a solid two hours and I still can’t figure out which ant does what. There is way too much math involved in this watch. It’s driving me nuts already and I don’t own the damn thing. Plus, all this attention to ants is making my skin crawl a little.

Storm Synth watch has too many hands

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on May 21st, 2009

Storm Synth watch has too many handsThe Storm Synth watch never ever wants you to know the time. So it hides it from you by mixing in the real hands with six fakes. The real hands both have tips. This means that glances won’t do. You’ll have to stare down your watch and actually focus to find the time.

Of course watch makers all want to be different and stand out from the crowd. Tokyoflash makes all kinds of watches that are tough to read. But c’mon. With this watch they’re just plain messing with us. They probably have a bet on how many they can actually sell.

Phosphor watches feature curved E-Ink displaysDespite the fact that hi-tech watches are awesomely cool, they tend to make one look like a nerd. That’s why these e-ink Phosphor watches are pretty cool. They bridge the gap. Awesome tech, with a look that is at least respectable.

You could actually wear these outside of a Trek convention without being labeled a dork. They have screens that will show you the time, date, and other stuff. Techie and retro at once, without going overboard. They’re all under $200.

Citizen AIBATO M Bluetooth watch controls your camera

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on May 19th, 2009

Citizen AIBATO M Bluetooth watch controls your cameraCitizen has announced a new Bluetooth watch, the AIBATO M. What’s interesting about this one is that it wirelessly connects to your cellphone and can, with selected handsets, remotely trigger the camera, browse emails and show call and message alerts. It comes in two colors. Black (with a rubber strap) and silver (with a metal strap).

The watches charge using an included desk-stand. A full battery is good for up to five days. It will give you audio and visual alerts and can even vibrate. Various Sharp and Softbank handsets are supported, but it’s unclear whether it will also work without the more complex camera control on other devices.

Diesel DZ9044 watch shows time on the side

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on May 12th, 2009

Diesel DZ9044 watch shows time on the sideIt might be hard to use this watch at first. You are used to taking a quick glance at the watch face to see the time, but that won’t help here. The watch face is on the side, showing you the current time in up to four different time zones.

Is it practical? Not really. It’s more of a watch for those who want to be different. Also maybe for those who want to keep the time selfishly to themselves. It’s available in durable solid stainless steel with a black ion-plated finish and a matching black leather band.

Luxury watchmaker uses 007-style watermark to find fakes

Posted in Watches by Shane McGlaun on April 1st, 2009

lecuberswatch-sbJames Bond was one of my first contact points with the world of cool gadgets as a kid. Bond always had the cool stuff from cars that turn into submarines, to hot chicks, and watches that had frickin’ lasers inside. One watchmaker has announced a new high tech watermark that sounds like a method of sending Bond covert instructions.

Watchmaker Les Cubeurs has announced that it is now using a special high tech watermark on the crystal of its watches. The watermark is made using a special laser etching process and invisible digital ink. The goal of the watermark is to allow the company and its authorized dealers to determine a real watch from a fake.
