ECG watch clues you in on your impending heart attack

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on March 29th, 2009

ECG watch clues you in on your impending heart attackSadly this watch has no display showing your heartbeat. It’s just a watch with yet another cool way to display the time. The upper spike in the chart shows the hour, the downward spike points to the minute. That’s about it.

But I’m thinking they can magically combine this watch with the ECG watch and just maybe the result would be a watch that displays a day and date when your doctor should be hand with some electric paddles.

Clairvoyant watch for the rich & foolish

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on March 25th, 2009

Clairvoyant watch for the rich & foolishRemember mood rings? Even if you aren’t old enough, you’ve heard about them. Yeah, this is like that, only geared toward rich idiots. This watch is timekeeping merged with fortune telling. Swiss watchmaker Borgeaud has gone all superstitious and teamed up with Indian fortune tellers to craft a watch that will foresee the future.

Whenever things are about to take a turn for the worse in your life, that kidney-shaped section on the watch will turn brown. (Many people do this same voodoo with their underwear. Though unknowingly) The Borgeaud site states that “the watch automatically displays a daily 90-minute period called the Raju Kaal, which is believed to be a terrible time to make important decisions or start new projects.” Once the dark forces have left, the watch will then return to its normal color.

HyundaiWhat do you do when people are no longer buying cars due to the economy being in the toilet? You get the hell out, that’s what. If you know what’s good for you, you’ll make something that people are still buying. Like phones and watches. If you’re Hyundai you offer both in one package.

Truth About Roswell Watch is geeky cool

Posted in Watches by Shane McGlaun on March 9th, 2009

roswellwatch-sbI haven’t worn a wristwatch in years, my iPhone is my timepiece of choice and many people are the same way. However, the wristwatch in some forms is still very interesting to me and Romain Jermoe has a new, very limited edition watch that is beyond cool.

The watch is called The Truth About Roswell and is being offering in a very limited edition run of only 9 units. The watch is from the Moon Dust-DNA series and pricing is unspecified, but sure to be expensive. It has mechanical movement and power comes from a winding mechanism. That means it has all those tiny gears and springs inside the case.

They sport the usual Steampunk design cues, like pistons, cogs, gears, revolving jump hour discs and so on. They’re a tad more affordable than most high-end watches, priced between $429 to $1098. Handlebar mustache and bowler hat not required, but they help.

Being a Timex watch, the WS4 will take a licking and keep on ticking. It’s also water resistant up to 50 meters and comes with a rubber strap which can be mounted to a fabric strap, so you can wear on the outside of your heavy gear should the need arise.
