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.

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on October 3rd, 2009

Alessi Laser Shot watchWho needs old fashioned hands that go around a dial, when you can have lasers? That’s the thinking behind the latest concept watch from Alessi. Supposedly, the Laser Shot watch won’t burn your hand as it pew pew pews the time on your wrist using a laser beam.

So it’s totally safe. Unless you wake up one day to find the time permanently tattooed on your skin and glowing. In which case, it’s time to get a new watch. But hey, that’s the price you pay for having cool things.

Ora Watch measures hours in inches

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on September 29th, 2009

Ora Watch measures hours in InchesThis measuring tape watch called the Ora watch is sadly just a concept and not real. It uses a measuring tape to display the time. The creator says that “It focuses on the display of time via an unconventional mode, by replacing the expected dial arrangement found in the vast majority of the mechanical watches with a set of three interwoven tapes—one to indicate the hour(s), one to indicate the minute(s), and one to indicate the day.”

We’re just saddened that we can’t actually buy the thing. But maybe some DIYer out there can make a version and offer it up for tons of money.

StressWatch will calm you with colors

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on September 27th, 2009

StressWatch will calm you with colorsWe live in stressful times. Traffic is stressful, so are long lines at the grocery store. So is your job, since your boss is always on your case. Oh and all of those bills. It’s enough to make you scream. Serenity now! The StressWatch can help. Maybe.

It’s a design concept that reads heart rate and body temperature data and then interprets them as levels of stress on the trippy screen. The black bar at the bottom is the stress line. And if the cool colors on the watch turn into hot pink, red or orange, man you are stressed. The idea is that it will help you know when you need to calm down.

RIM working on Bluetooth watch

RIM working on Bluetooth watchRIM VP Antoine Boucher has confirmed that they are working on a Bluetooth-enabled watch. Supposedly it will be more advanced than the models from Sony Ericsson. It will feature streaming audio, Twitter and Facebook updates as well as all of the usual things like caller ID and text messages.

The image isn’t real btw, that one is a Sony Ericsson MBW-100 with RIM logo. Boucher also talked about a high-end Bluetooth headset codenamed “Alpha 1″ that will let you stream music and get navigation directions through a silicone earpiece, which is apparently “the best solution on the market.”

The Daytimer will cost you $120 each and is available in red, green, purple and black. Because geometry rules…Your wrist.

Netflix instant watch on iPhone?

Posted in Netflix by Conner Flynn on August 3rd, 2009

Netflix instant watch on iPhone?Rumor is that Netflix is going to let iPhone users get in on the fun of streaming movies via WIFI. Users would love it of course, but how would they do it? The iPhone doesn’t support Flash, so it’s probably not going to be a web portal.

Netflix could develop its own app and do it all itself we suppose. How do you think AT&T would feel about users watching video on its wireless network without paying though? We would be surprised if this one panned out anytime soon.

Samsung’s ‘world’s thinnest’ watchphone

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on July 22nd, 2009

Samsung's 'world's thinnest' watchphoneWe’ve seen our share of wrist phones, most of them looking huge on your wrist. Now Samsung has one with a slimmer design. It’s model S9110 “the world’s thinnest.”

Thin is one thing, but this one is also small. That’s the magic formula for wrist phones. Trouble is you need excellent eyesight to see that 1.7-inch touchscreen. It sports Bluetooth, voice recognition, a speakerphone, and can even play music and check your e-mail.

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

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on June 18th, 2009

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.

VibraLite 8 vibrating watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on June 16th, 2009

VibraLite 8 vibrating watchIf you have a bad memory and are forgetful, then this is the watch for you. Assuming you can remember to purchase one. The VibraLite 8 vibrating watch will vibrate whenever you have a task that needs to be done. The idea is that this watch helps increase your efficiency.

The watch has 8 alarm settings to choose from along with an Auto Reset Countdown Timer option that gives you a bunch of variable and interval reminders. It will cost you a ridiculous $149.95.

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.
