The Kickstarter campaign of Awake has started today, and their product is a premium, sustainably-designed watch that has been created from the ground up to be as eco-friendly as possible but uncompromising on quality at the same time. This includes selecting the cleanest processes, recycled materials and limiting transport.
The world of smartwatches has certainly become more and more interesting as newer players arrive, but this does not mean the old guard would just sit back and do nothing. Garmin is a name that is more often than not associated with GPS devices, and this time around, they have announced the vívoactive HR, which is a GPS smartwatch that sports their very own Garmin Elevate wrist heart rate technology.
In the luxury watch market, there are many watches that are luxurious because of the movement and how complicated they are, while there are some that are luxurious simply because of their choice of materials which might feature rare stones/gems, high quality leather, and etc.
The smartwatch happens to be all the rage these days, and you can be sure that Apple’s own iteration, which is simply known as the Apple Watch, has already been touted to hit the 1 million mark when it comes to the number of pre-orders, so much so that Samsung too, has set up a special team to handle Apple’s display needs. Are there any other decent alternatives in the […]
While plenty of attention has been focused on that of the Apple Watch in recent times, one ought to remember that there are still different kinds of timepieces available in the market. For instance, avid surfers might want to check out the Nixon Ultratide Surf Watch, and the whole main point of this particular timepiece would be to inform you as to when your local surf spot is going off.
Yes, we do know that one is unable to line up outside the Apple Store for an Apple Watch, which certainly gives rise to rumors of the manufacturing process hitting a snag along the way, and here we are with more official information on the Apple Watch that can be previewed and see a pre-order for it placed this coming Friday, April 10.
Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me. Hopefully there will not be too much shaming done as we hear of cases involving the sales of an Apple Watch prototype on eBay. In fact, there was one particular case where the person actually bid $260 for what has been described to be a “prototype” Apple Watch, and hopefully there will be enough good Samaritans around to […]
[CES 2015] Being an old hand in the GPS industry, Garmin is back with their brand new fēnix 3 multisport GPS watch. This unique timepiece does a whole lot more than to just tell the time, as it comes equipped with the spanking new EXO GPS antenna, allowing the fēnix 3 to come with support for a full range of multisport activities. It does not matter if you happen to […]
At the end of last week, we did bring you word on how Sony could be working on an e-paper watch. Well, it seems that more light has been shed along the way, where a secret project known as FES from Sony, or Fashion Electronics in full, has managed to pick up more than its originally intended goal of $17,000 over on a Japanese crowdfunding website.
Electronic paper, or e-paper in short, is not something that you would want to use on a smartphone, although it works great in an e-book reader setting, hence its name. This energy-efficient display technology does its level best to emulate the reading properties of standard paper, and it might eventually make its way onto a Sony smartwatch soon, at least according to some rumors that have been bandied about. If […]
While the Apple Watch has not quite received a concrete release date for the masses just yet, and neither do we know anything else about its battery life, this does not mean that there will be no interest in this piece of wearable technology when it is made available. Chances are, it might spark off a smartwatch frenzy, just like how the iPhone did for the smartphone market. Having said […]
When it comes to smartwtaches, manufacturers, and especially startups, tend to focus on the male audience. We have seen a few timid attempts to appeal to the female audience by Apple, which announced two different models of its Apple Watch and by Withings, which made the effort to design an elegant smartwatch, the Activite, with specific proportions that fit both the female and the male users.Omate is pushing the envelop […]
For those who happen to live in the northern hemisphere, you would most probably be aware by now that we are all thrown into the first week of autumn, and what a welcome it is! The leaves have started to perform their annual ”trick” of changing color, while the air starts to get a whole lot cooler and crisper – with days being shorter too, of course. However, this weather […]
The Timex Group looks set to roll out a new smartwatch which will boast of a cellular connection, allowing it to hook up to the Internet directly without the need to go through a smartphone, where it will also be accompanied by a high-visibility display thanks to the folks over at Qualcomm Inc.
Here is a different way to use the world relative – it has nothing associated with your flesh and blood, but rather, watch lovers who love Swiss mechanical movement used to have to fork out huge sums of money to own such a timepiece, but the Swatch Sistem51 does that without requiring you to break the bank, now how about that for being relatively cheap?
If you’re a fan of Gundam and special edition watches, you might be pleased to learn that both Bandai Namco and Casio have come together and collaborated on the G-SHOCKxGUNDAM watch which you can see pictured above. This is a special edition watch and was created in celebration of Mobile Suit Gundam’s 35th anniversary.
When it comes to timepieces, there are different schools of thought here. Some folks think that watches should be all digital in order to keep up with the times, while others prefer the analogue watch face as it retains that classic elegance of the timepiece. While others who are extremely well off would not settle for anything less than a diamond studded Rolex, there are some who would be happy […]
The folks over at Tokyoflash have always had a vivid imagination when it comes to the different kinds of timepieces that they roll out to the masses, and more often than not, these watches are the stuff that tickles the imagination – lots. In fact, you will need plenty of brainpower to figure out some of their more obscure timepieces, and in this latest bout of releases, the Tokyoflash Kisai […]
It is not as though the blind or visually impaired do not have a way to tell the time, it is just that watches for them are few and far in between. Well, the Bradley Timepiece happens to be an exception to the rule, where this watch was specially designed for blind people, and it has been named after a Paralympian gold medallist who lost his ability to see in […]
Victorinox Swiss Army has a spanking new timepiece for you to consider if you are currently on the lookout for a new watch. After all, they have introduced a new watch collection at this year’s Baselworld in Switzerland, where the Inox timepiece has been depicted as a rugged companion to last you a lifetime, and each Inox has gone through a hundred toughness tests before it is sold over the […]
