tokyoflash-kisai-kaidoku-wood-2

Instead of interesting graphical displays, the latest Tokyoflash watch uses a word matrix to tell you the time or date.  The words needed to display the information flash on the face of the Kisai Kaidoku Wood watch, so you don't have to learn to decode a pattern to tell the time.  As a matter of [...]

Smartwatches have been a dream of technophiles since the Dick Tracy days.  While they have not yet reached the dream of the standalone phone, what they can do while partnered with a smartphone far outstrips anything Tracy's wrist gear aspired to.  Hot on the heels of Samsung's Tizen-powered Gear 2 watch, the Gear Live watch [...]

ihome-idl46-5

I've had my iHome docking alarm clock since the 3nd generation iPod Touch came out. I enjoyed the easy interface that iHome brought, and that it worked with my iPhone when I got one.

I like wrist watches.  OK, I said it and that probably makes me a dinosaur.  Although I have a cell phone which I can reference for the time, to me there's nothing like the convenience of having a timepiece on my wrist, and I don't have to fish it out of my pocket to check [...]

My favorite watch styles tend to be big, bold and heavy-duty. That's why the Mouve M01 caught my eye. Currently in a crowdfunded Kickstarter campaign, the Mouve M01 features a 27-jewel [...]
