We’ve seen smartwatches before where they basically pair with a smartphone via Bluetooth. In case you’re wondering what a smartwatch is, not only does it display the time, but it also has the ability to display notifications from Facebook, Twitter, emails, messages, calls and etc. Some go as far as letting you answer your calls via your watch so you will never have to take the phone out of your […]
Watches can be a defining piece of fashion, especially if you know how to pair a particular watch style with a particular look. While concept watches might not necessarily be designed in your typical watch fashion, they are pretty interesting to look at and probably appeal to those with more eclectic fashion sense.

We’re sure that you guys have come across watches before that combine both digital and analog times into a single device.

Watches with built-in MP3 player capabilities aren’t new – in fact one could think of the iPod nano as a MP3 player with built-in watch capabilities, or vice versa depending on how you look at it. However if you’re looking for a watch with a unique look and design, then you might be interested in the Hi-Five LED watch concept by Lloyd from Australia who submitted his design to the […]
