orbit-clock-2

This clock is designed to look like three planets orbiting a sun in a tiny solar system; it reminds me of the Emerald Observatory app for iPad that I wrote about years ago.  The clock face is rubberized, so it won't scuff as the planets move around to show the time.  The planets look like [...]

elliothavok-havokwatch

I'm a fan of watches, and of the crowdfunding site Kickstarter. Over the past several years, there have been many great-looking watches on Kickstarter, from burly dive watches to complex smartwatches. Now Elliot Havok, who has run several successful Kickstarter campaigns including the Quarter Century Belt and three versions of the Dash Wallet, have launched their Havok [...]

Leatherman Tread

You have the perfect watch, but what about the perfect watchband? The folks at Leatherman have thought of this and have come up with the new Leatherman Tread. The idea came from Ben Rivera (President of Leatherman) when he was stopped at Disneyland security for carrying his Skeletool. The Tread is designed to be worn [...]

Swiss Legend watch review

swisslegend-1

In today's world, our personal technologies are not only tools to help us survive modern life but in many places status symbols and fashion statements as well. Long before computers, laptops, smartphones, and tablets, a person's wristwatch told much about who they were and where they came from. There are still people who wear watches for status, fashion [...]

diy-nixie-tube-clock-kit

We've told you about these ultra-cool steampunk clocks with Nixie tubes displays.  Nixie tubes are "the LEDs of yesteryear" that used to be used for displays on scientific equipment, voltmeters, counters, and control panels.  They're no longer in production, but ThinkGeek found some limited-edition kits that let you build your own clock with an alarm function [...]

LG G Watch review

lg-g-26

Before the holidays Verizon was nice enough to send me the LG G Android Wear-based watch to test drive. It seems like I'm always excited about wrist worn gadgets until I actually strap them to my wrist. Once I do, I quickly tire of them. I was hoping the LG G Watch would buck that trend. [...]

ScoreBand-1

I am a golfer, at one time I could be called an avid golfer playing two, three or even four times a week. Although golf is a great way to free your mind, with all the tranquility I often find my mind wandering on the course. This leads me to forget how many shots I [...]

coffee

Being able to read incoming SMS messages on your Google Android Wear smartwatch comes in handy when your phone is in your bag or pocket. But if you want to send a quick reply through the watch, your only option has been to have your dictated voice message converted into text. Some people don't like to [...]

I haven't seen a pocket watch from Tokyoflash Japan before, but the Kisai Vortex Pocket Watch has everything you've come to expect from their watches - except for a wristband.  The Kisai Vortex has a touchscreen interface covered by a lid with a mineral crystal lens.  The housing is polished stainless steel; you also receive a 13.8" [...]

ziiiro-pocketwatch

With all the focus on smart watches today, you may find the idea of a pocket watch to be too old-fashioned to contemplate.  When you take a look at the Ziiiro version of the pocket watch, you'll see it's not your great-grandfather's pocket watch!  The TITAN pocket watch has one of those abstract LCD watches [...]

garmin_fenix2-1b

Best.running.watch...ever. I have used many fitness and running watches over the years, none of them perfect. Some came closer than others to running-Zen, but many never even left the gate. I have been using the Garmin fēnix 2 on and off for months now and continue to be amazed how much it impresses me. I know my first [...]

maverick-chef-tunes-thermometer

If you have a tiny kitchen like mine, every item on the countertop has to have earned its place there.  The Maverick Chef Tunes Bluetooth Speaker and Roasting Thermometer does quadruple duty, so it would be worthy of the 12" x 2.5"  x 3.5" of counter it would require.  The Chef Tunes is a Bluetooth [...]

tokyoflash-kisai-clone

The Kisai Clone watch from Tokyoflash Japan doesn't claim to be Star Wars related, but I can see a bit of Darth Vader and a Stormtrooper in them.  The Clone has an ABS case and adjustable silicone strap with a metal buckle.  There are two time display modes, date, and alarm functions, plus an animation [...]

NYC NATO Horween watch band

I will admit that I have a rather large collection of watches. While most don't get worn on a regular basis, I do have a couple that I would consider my every day users. While these are not necessarily the most expensive or elaborate watches, they are reliable/durable and I am always looking for ways [...]
