Maze of Time watch is surprisingly easy to read

Posted in Concepts by Shane McGlaun on March 8th, 2010

At first glance, this watch design concept called Maze of Time looked to be very confusing. The watch has different color lines that overlap in a sort of maze configuration. The watch face has a decoding color key on it to tell you what color is for what number.

Yellow and blue numbers are for the hours and red and green numbers are for minutes. Each colored set of lines makes a number and once you see how it works the thing is very easy to read.

Tokyo Flash Hexagon Watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on March 5th, 2010

If bees wore watches this is what they would look like. Just looking at this watch, you know it’s from Tokyo Flash. But this Hexagonal watch isn’t real, it’s just a stunning concept. We hope that Tokyo Flash decides to make it real.

Telling the time on this thing is easy. The blue colored LEDS are the hours, five minute increments are purple and individual minutes are pink. So are you all buzzing about this watch? Sorry, bad joke. I’ll bee more careful in the future.

Double-Axis Tourbillion watch is mysterious, amazing

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

It’s been awhile since we’ve seen a watch as amazing as this one. Amazing doesn’t even do it justice. In fact, the more you look at it, the more it mesmerizes you. Thomas Prescher’s Double Axis Tourbillon is completely empty of everything except the tourbillon, which is just hovering in the center, suspended by a thin wire.

Only the time, Tourbillon, calendar and oscillating weight are visible. The movement is completely hidden inside the bezel, and it’s powered by the oscillating weight at the top. You can’t help but stare at this thing for way too long.

Too Late Aurora watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on February 25th, 2010

How do you make a watch stand out when there are so many unique watches on the market? Well, glowing in the dark helps. The Too Late Aurora watch does just that, allowing you to make a really unique fashion statement in or out of the local rave scene.

You can choose from Verde, Bianco, Blue, Lilla and Rosa colors and it comes with an anti-scratch design and waterproof case. Only $24.99. Wear this watch in the bathroom with some glow-in-the-dark toilet paper and you almost have full light.

Smart handgun won’t fire unless you’re wearing this ugly watch

Posted in Weapons by Conner Flynn on January 29th, 2010

If you see somebody wearing this ugly watch, run. They have a weapon. The idea here is to make guns safer. Or at least harder to fire. The new Armatix .22 comes with a custom watch. When the gun is within a few inches of the watch, a green LED on the back lights up, letting you know that it’s armed and ready to fire.

If you try to use it without wearing the watch, the LED turns red and it can not fire. It would be great for police weapons, so that they don’t get in civilian hands. The military as well. Your enemy will no longer be able to use your weapon against you should they somehow get it.

Time Zone Watch has you covered, wherever you are

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

Are you a world traveler who never has any idea what time it is where you happen to be? Well, here’s a watch that can help, from Diesel.

The Time Zone Watch is futuristic as well as convenient. Those multiple dials will let you see up to four different simultaneous time zones. The digital clock at the bottom is there just in case you can’t read analog. We love the blue/black/yellow color.

Timex Ironman Global Trainer watch with GPS

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on January 25th, 2010

We haven’t seen any interesting watches from Timex for awhile now, but check this guy out. It’s the company’s new GPS-on board watch. It will be arriving next month, going by the name Ironman Global Trainer. Yes it has GPS and is not fugly.

It features real-time speed, pace and distance data courtesy of the SiRFstarIII module inside, and it also boasts 50 meters of water resistance, a customizable display to showing off all of the data and it can send performance reports to your PC. It’s compatible with Timex heart rate and bike sensors and third-party power meters using ANT+ wireless technology. Did I mention that it looks nice?

These shock resistant watches feature a 1/1000-second stopwatch, velocity indicator, and are even magnetic resistance compliant with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).

2Oct2031 concept watch

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

The 2Oct2031 concept watch looks like a Sci-fi movie prop. That’s what we love about it. It’s part stealth, part alien, all cool. It’s from designer Tao Ma. The 2Oct2031 concept watch has angles that might be from a stealth plane or a diamond.

This one will be aimed at the Chinese market, but the concept watch isn’t ready for production just yet. We hope that other watch makers are paying attention. We want more like this.

Stanley watch with built in LED flashlight

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on December 30th, 2009

This flashlight watch from Brando is pretty neat. I’m not sure how useful it actually is, or even if it’s an official Stanley gadget, but any watch with it’s own flashlight is good by me.

It also features an alarm, backlight and a timer. At least you will always have a flashlight at the ready for those projects that you choose to build in the dead of night.

Arduino based MakerBotWatch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on December 28th, 2009

This is one of the coolest watches we’ve seen in some time. When you think Arduino, you tend to think robot projects, not watches. This Arduino based MakerBotWatch actually manages to be fresh and exciting and it’s something that any DIYer can try.

The MakerBotWatch uses an ATmega328 microcontroller to run the bootloader, while the two concentric circles of LEDs show minutes and hours. A vertical row of four LEDs adds in the additional resolution needed to get 60 minutes on the watch face. The MakerBotWatch is expected to go into production as a kit soon, but with no laser-cut bezel.

Jaeger-LeCoultre AMVOX3 Tourbillon GMT watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on December 23rd, 2009

Swiss watchmaker Jaeger-LeCoultre and Aston Martin have joined forces to create a new and expensive love-child in the form of the AMVOX3 Tourbillon GMT. It was inspired by the Koenigsegg CCR sports car and features an open dial that gives you a clear view of everything that’s going on.

It’s a beautiful watch. More for showing off than actually knowing the time. Only three hundred of these watches will be available for purchase. Probably only 300 of you can actually afford one.

Retro Pac-Man watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on December 4th, 2009

Retro Pac-Man watchHows your geek cred? Well, if you don’t own at least one quality Pac-Man item, you are not an official geek. And this Pac-Man watch is a good one to own. It’s half past clyde and a quarter to a power-pellet, or something like that.

It was made exclusively for ClubNAMCO and tells time using ghosts and power pellets. The invisible second is Pac-Man himself gobbling up dots, cherries and a blue ghost as he circles around. How cool is that? Only 500 of these watches are being produced, and each will be individually marked with a serial number. The price isn’t too bad at $129.99.

First images of RIM’s BlackBerry watch

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on October 19th, 2009

First images of RIM's BlackBerry watchRemember that rumor about RIM working on a Bluetooth watch to accompany its phones? Well looky here. We may now have the first real renderings of the final product. It may be called the “inPulse” and it features an OLED display, real-time message preview, and probably caller ID.

Looks like the watch isn’t being developed by RIM. Instead, work has been farmed out to a company dedicated to the BlackBerry aftermarket. An official announcement is coming “soon.” Thing is, Bluetooth watches haven’t been great sellers, but maybe more compatibility with the Blackberry is the trick.
