TikTok and LunaTik Watch Kits for iPod Nano

Posted in iPod Nano by Conner Flynn on November 18th, 2010

A project started by Scott Wilson over on Kickstarter has made the money it needs to go from concept to the real world. The projects are the Tiktok and LunaTik watch kits for the new iPod nano. Scott needed $15,000 to fund the project and ended up with over $75,000. I guess people really want them.

And why not? They are the coolest watchbands for the nano we’ve seen yet. The TikTok is a snap in band that the iPod can be removed from easily. While the LunaTik is made from aluminum parts and comes in silver or red colors.

Posted in iPod Nano by Conner Flynn on November 16th, 2010

Your iPod nano watch options just got a bit more colorful, thanks to Griffin’s new Slap wristband. It appears to be the most protective and colorful option yet.

The Slap wristband is made entirely of a soft silicone and it’s available in eight different colors of the rainbow, completely ensconcing your iPod nano, while allowing you to control the volume and sleep / wake buttons through the case.

Hex iPod Nano Watch

Posted in iPod Nano by Conner Flynn on November 7th, 2010

When Apple released the new iPod Nano, there were several watch strap accessories that turned the new iPod Nano into a watch. This one is from Hex and it is probably the best yet. It looks great. They didn’t just add a watch strap to the iPod Nano, the Hex watch band actually integrates the iPod Nano into the strap, protecting it.

The Hex watch band for the iPod Nano comes in several colors including white, black, blue, silver, orange, green, red, grey and pink for $24.95.

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.

Latest Tokyoflash watch concept will leave you cross-eyed

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on September 26th, 2010

So what time is it? Can you tell from that image? I can’t. But if you focus you just might see the time. It’s 5:36. With this watch time is read and hidden by an optical illusion. Now I see it. Thanks for hurting my eyes.

If for some reason you can’t see it, there’s a button on the side that turns off the illusion and displays just the numbers. Pretty cool, even if it is a pain to see.

Tokyoflash Cobra LED watch concept

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on September 14th, 2010

The aptly named Cobra LED watch from Tokyoflash shows the time, well, like a cobra. This concept watch tells you the time using two decks, one that shows the hours, while the other shows the minutes.

Numbers are engraved on each deck like a scale. You can view the time vertically or diagonally. It looks like it could leap off your wrist and strike.

Incipio Linq turns your iPod nano into a watch

Posted in iPod Nano by Conner Flynn on September 12th, 2010

We all joked that the new iPod nano could be turned into a watch, so of course now iPod accessory makers are making accessories to turn your iPod nano into a digital wristwatch. It’s just gadget evolution. Incipio has announced the Linq, which is basically a case for the iPod nano, that also allows it to function as a wristwatch.

It will protect your device from bumps and knocks and drops. There’s no pricing info or a release date for this yet, but the nano really does make a nice watch it seems.

Tokyoflash watch concept is one I can actually use

Posted in Watches by Shane McGlaun on September 10th, 2010

I would say 99% of the watches that I see over on Tokyoflash are not something I would use. Let’s be honest, watches without numbers still through a lot of us off so having to decipher gobs of symbols that tell the time is just way more than I care to put up with. I will say that the watches are usually pretty cool though.

Tokyoflash has a new watch concept that is easy to use and was designed by a 14-year-old. The watch has numbers spelled out in one long run on all the way down the screen. The worlds are grey by default and when they are needed to tell the time the light up in blue.

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on August 15th, 2010

The ODM JCDC UFO Watch Design comes from a collaboration between ODM Design and Jean-Charles de Castelbajac. It certainly is geek-chic with that styling and those colors.

Tokyoflash Night Vision watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on August 11th, 2010

The folks over at Tokyoflash never ever sleep. They don’t rest at all. They just spend all of their time coming up with unusual new watches. And that’s what we love about the company. Their latest crazy watch concept is the Night Vision concept.

This one looks pretty cool and Sci-Fi like with bright green lights. As usual, it’s hard to figure out how you tell the time at first. The outer bars indicate the hours, while the minutes are shown in the center in large digital numerals.

Tokyoflash Traffic Watch

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

Those crafty folks over at Tokyoflash have yet another weird watch in the Traffic Watch. This one uses three map routes to display the time. The hours are displayed as the city streets marked in blue, while 5 minute intervals are shown along the subway line. The single minutes are shown in green.

There is also an optional night mode animation between 6pm to midnight. It can be recharged via USB, and will last for roughly a month on a 3.5 hour charge. The battery is good for up to 300 charge cycles, and can be replaced when needed.
