Timex Expedition WS4 watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on February 2nd, 2009

Timex Expedition WS4 watchThe Timex Expedition WS4 looks pretty ordinary, but it isn’t. Some of it’s features include an altimeter, barometer, thermometer, chronograph, alarm and compass. This isn’t some slim sissy watch for a nerd wrist. This one’s for real men. Rugged type dudes. Adventurers.

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.

Rare Space Invaders watch from Japan

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

Rare Space Invaders watch from JapanLook what our friend Technabob found. Limited Edition Space Invaders LED watches that came out a few years back in Japan. Until now, you couldn’t find them from here. Look at that watch face, full of retro awesomeness. The watch will cost you $207, but any true geek is already getting their credit card ready.

The watch features a red dot-matrix display showing you the current time. Press the button and the “Space Invaders” scroll across the display, then a giant animated invader dances across. Then “Game Over”. You can’t actually play the game, but it’s still, an awesome watch.

Garmin FR Fitness Watch Tracks Your Workout

Garmin FR Watch
Watches today do more than watches could do in the past. I have seen watches that have cell phones built-in and watches that connect to the Internet. Garmin is a brand closely associated with GPS devices, but the company has a wider range of products and has introduced a new watch.

It would be easy to assume that the new watch offers GPS capability, but it doesn’t. The watch monitors data from your workouts and saves it for wireless transmission to your computer for analysis. The watch is compatible with any ANT+ fitness device like heart rate monitors, foot pods, or home and gym equipment.

Clone Trooper Walkie Talkie watch set

Clone Trooper Walkie Talkie watch setSo, you’re a kid who’s into Star Wars. I apologize on Lucas’ behalf for a crappy second trilogy. You deserved better. But hey, if you’re into it you obviously don’t ask for much. Might as well enjoy these crappy Clone Trooper Walkie Talkie watches that are just as sub-par as the latest movies. They’re great for communicating with your fellow trooper while on your various Jedi killing missions.

There’s no word on what kind of range you’ll get with these. Probably two feet. You’ll have these on your wrists while you are yelling at each other and giving away your plans. A set of two will cost you $29.99. And look, they match your Clone Trooper laptop.

Yes or No Watch decides for you

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

Yes or No Watch decides for youWe’ve seen plenty of overly complicated watches with tons of features and all kinds of bells and whistles. This watch on the other hand, like the GPS coin, keeps it real simple. Yes or no.

The idea is that it will help you make all of those hard decisions in life. As the precious seconds of your life tick by, the words “yes” and “no” are alternately displayed. When you need to make a decision, just look at your watch for the answer. Maybe you could flip your GPS coin and turn to this watch for two out of three.

Tokyoflash Kisai Keisan LED watch is a beautyThe creative folks over at Tokyoflash just revealed their latest digital watch and it’s pretty sexy if we do say so ourselves. The new Kisai Keisan watch uses a unique convex lens that magnifies the lighting effect from the LEDs behind the numbers in the watch face.

If you’re familiar with Tokyoflash watches, and I know you are, since you read the ‘Brick, you’ll know that reading the time will take some getting used to. To tell the time on this watch, just add the digits in each of the four vertical lines of numbers. The Keisan features an aluminum body and comes in silver (with orange or yellow leds), or black (with red or green LEDs).

See-through iron let’s you watch the de-wrinkling process

See-through iron let’s you watch the de-wrinkling processDoing chores sucks. Ironing is probably one of the worst chores. But no one likes a wrinkly shirt. This iron should make it a little more bearable. The b-Iron 715 is a clothes iron that’s completely transparent, letting you to see your clothes while you’re ironing. This way you can watch the whole mysterious de-wrinkling right before your eyes. And you won’t burn that shirt.

Let’s just hope that it lives up to all the hype that surrounds transparent iron technology and distributes the heat evenly. Also, if it clouds up from the steam then you will be sadly disappointed. Here’s to hoping they have all the wrinkles worked out.

Lok8u announces Nu•M8 GPS child locator watchLok8u has made the trek from the UK all the way to Vegas so they could show off their Nu•M8 GPS child locator at CES. It’s the “innovative new best friend for parents and children.” Yippee. Try telling your kid that after he’s been beat up for wearing such a hefty nerd watch.

The device is touted as the first of its kind, created specifically to be worn by children with the technology “cleverly concealed within a child’s digital watch.” Um, okay. I think everyone who sees this watch knows that something is up. The watch will also send an alert if it’s ever “forcibly removed,”, thereby forcing your child to wear their $218 watch.

Casio Robo-watches celebrate G-Shock anniversary

Posted in Robots by Conner Flynn on December 31st, 2008

Casio Robo-watches celebrate G-Shock anniversaryObviously this is a marketing gimmick. But ask yourself, are these robot watches more awesome than your typical watch? Hell yes. Casio’s 25 years of G-Shock celebration continues with the offering of a new set of character watches designed by Shiro Nakano.

Now that I’ve given you the good news, it’s time for the bad. These robot characters themselves are not available for sale. And yes, that’s a big mistake, because they are amazingly cool. They would make great desktop clocks. And good robot clocks are hard to find. Ask any robo-enthusiast.

Phenom SpecialOps cellphone watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on December 30th, 2008

Phenom SpecialOps cellphone watchSure, it might seem silly to use a wrist watch phone these days to some, but I don’t care. It’s all kinds of kid imagination awesomeness on your wrist. Back in the day everyone was using them, from Dick Tracey to countless Sci-Fi dudes. And we dreamed of one day having our own.

This Phenom watch is a completely unlocked GSM phone ready for any SIM card you have. It also functions as an MP3/MP4 player through a MicroSD port. Some other features include a 1.3″ touchscreen display, Bluetooth, speakerphone, numeric keypad and a videocamera. Yep. Video. But does a touchscreen even matter when you get this small?

LG’s GD910 wrist phone with touchscreen & cameraWe knew that eventually a watch phone would show up that packs in all of the features we want.Turns out that it’s LG who has accomplished this with their LG-GD910 model. The phone sports a touchscreen LCD, 3G data, and a built-in camera for videoconferencing and looking cool.

Of course using that 1.43-inch screen, it might be tough to browse the internet, but it’s all about looking cool, not what you can actually accomplish. You can’t get one now and we don’t have a price yet, but LG should be showing it off at CES next month. They plan a release in Japan and Europe, but that’s all we know.

$400K Cabestan Winch Tourbillion Watch has a chain drive

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on December 19th, 2008

Cabestan Winch Tourbillion Watch has a chain driveSpending a few grand on a watch is ridiculous. Spending $400K takes it to a whole other crazy level. $400K is what the Cabestan Winch Tourbillion watch will cost you. From afar it sort of resembles a weird fishing rod reel, but up close, you can see the amazing workmanship.

We’re talking 1352 components driven by a 450 link chain and nickel silver drums in horizontal precision. How cool is that? Still, it’s like buying a house for your wrist. I bet this $400K watch is a real hit with bankers and auto executives. The rest of us can just admire it from afar.

Torus concept watch adds some color to time

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on December 19th, 2008

Torus concept watch adds some color to timeThe Torus concept watch from Nicolas Meiresonne won’t give you the exact time. But it will look pretty in a Sci-Fi kind of way. This timepiece offers the wearer only a perception of time, by cycling through a variety of pretty colors.

For instance, you’ll get blue and green in the morning, while yellow and orange mean noon with red and purple depicting both evening and night. The bracelet’s surface has touchscreen capability, allowing you to set the timer simply by tapping on the corresponding segments. Pretty cool, but pretty useless if you need to know appropriate times.
