Ventura SPARC MGS Kinectic-powered Watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on March 14th, 2011

The Ventura SPARC MGS looks nice and futuristic and it uses a micro-generator to power a digital display. Your wrist movements feed an accumulator that provides power to the high-performance microprocessor.

The company claims that throughout an average day the wearer’s movements will turn the oscillating mass about 4,000 times. Through a set of connecting gears, these rotations are used to repeatedly tension a spring. Every time the spring is fully tensioned, it releases that force to a built-in micro-generator which generates electricity for the watch. Pretty cool.

Konect USB watch concept

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on March 8th, 2011

We’ve seen our share of unique watches. We thought we had seen it all in fact, but nope, there was at least one more. Artist Olivier Demange created this timepiece concept called Konect, which has a wide range of features and looks futuristic.

It sports a Bluetooth radio that acts as a receiver, controls for music playback, a button to answer and end calls, a removable USB stick, and yes it also tells the time. We just aren’t sure how yet. Still, it looks awesome and we hope to be wearing one soon.

Timescape Sci-Fi watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on March 1st, 2011

If you want a cool looking futuristic watch, you have to work a little to find out what time it is. The Timescape Sci-Fi watch will require some brain cells to figure out, but it is worth it just for it’s style. It features a chrome exterior and uses blue LEDs to illuminate a rectangular grid, giving you the readouts. Each line contains a series of dots representing minutes or hours. The vertical lines are the hours, the first three horizontal lines show five-minute increments, and the last row shows exact minutes.

Looking good means that you’ll never know what time it is at first glance. The Timescape Sci-Fi watch will cost you $70.

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.

4D concept watch

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on January 24th, 2011

3D may be all the rage, but 4D is better and more practical. At least when it comes to watch design anyway. Forget having to lift your arm in order to tell the time on this watch. You don’t even need to bother. Your arms are probably flabby anyway. This 4D concept watch can display the time based on gravity or depending on the head position of the person whose wrist it’s on.

All you need to do is look down at your wrist and you’ll be able to see the time. Soon you won’t have any arm muscles at all. The two buttons on the side of the display control the functions of the watch.

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.

Posted in iPod Nano by Conner Flynn on December 29th, 2010

If you are looking for a watch band to house your iPod nano 6G, you certainly have plenty of options, but this one is one of our favorites. And Hex has just started shipping its HEX Watch Band in the US. It will cost you $29.95 for this soft, flexible band.

Just insert your nano into the face, strap it on your wrist and you are good to go. It’s designed to be remarkably rugged and stand up to abuse, and the headphone socket is arranged so that the cable runs up your arm. It comes in nine colors to fit your own style.

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.

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.
