  • TokyoFlash S-Mode Oberon: When legibility isn't an option

    I’m a watch purist so maybe the S-Mode Oberon isn’t for me. However, it is another cool creation from TokyoFlash and at about $150 it’s a considerable bargain. It has a stainless steel body, mineral crystal, and shows the time in a series of bright blue LEDs. You press the button once to view the time and again to view the date. Again, I totally dig what Paul is doing at… Read More

    If you’re a geek, and you’re into gadgets, then you’re into MacGyver, there’s no way around it. Skull Candy knows this, and has released a MacGyver-themed MP3 watch that actually seems OK.

  • Make your own scientific calculator watch

    It’s been a long time coming, but someone’s finally resurrected the scientific calculator wristwatch. Billed as “the ultimate nerd status symbol,” the µWatch is made of off-the-shelf parts and contains 18 keys and a 16×2 line LCD screen. Apparently the scientific calculator watch phenomenon has been dormant for about 20 years, as the Casio CFX-400 was the last of… Read More

  • Alligator-skinned Windows Mobile wrist watch

    Behold the future…today! It’s the world’s first Windows Mobile wrist watch phone. It comes at you like a feature-tornado with Windows CE 5.0, GPRS, 1.45-inch screen (with handwriting recognition!), network camera and/or a 1.3-megapixel digital camera, Wi-Fi connection, Bluetooth, up to one-gigabyte of “T-flash memory,” and…um…I’ll just cut and… Read More

  • Creating wearable art from busted wristwatches for fun and net loss


    I doubt you need any help spray-painting watchesBut you’ll get an article on how to do it anyway. I’ve had the same watch for five years and I intend to keep it going for another twenty, but there are a few laying around that could be used to make a brightly colored statement on how little regard I have for time in general. Remember, there are colors other than Juicy Fruit pink, so… Read More

  • Mighty G-Shock wrist clock corrects itself with international RF


    The G-Shock brand, never one to lack a feature, has added to the GW-9200 the ability to correct the time displayed by listening to one of six international radio stations. This is, of course, in addition to the barometer histogram, laser tunneling tool, and half rack of ribs also featured on this enormous watch. The only thing it doesn’t do is tell time, because you won’t be able… Read More

    [photopress:watchphone__001.jpg,full,center]
    I’m all for companies protecting their intellectual property and I respect embargoes and NDAs. But when companies hide their precious, yelling at you about taking pictures of things in plain sight it pisses me off.

  • The LG booth is staffed by douches


    LG’s exciting new watch concept. A few douches decided to prevent me from taking pix of the red hot LG watch concept which, as you can imagine, is a watch with a phone in it. Amazing stuff, to be sure, but I got the Sean Penn treatment from a full set of booth douches informing me in no uncertain terms that a device that will never come to market and is already well documented elsewhere… Read More

  • TAG Heuer watch: WTF?

    OK. If this is real — and there is some indication that it is — then we’ve got ourselves a genuine breakthrough. We reported that TAG is making a phone, but we had no idea that it would be a damn watch phone. TAG Heuer has pretty much gone the sports route, offering quartz pieces to unsuspecting rubes. However, if this phone/watch comes to fruition, they’ll have a hit… Read More

    It’s part watch, part Tetris and *all entertainment*. It’s a Nixon-inspired watch with a built-in version of Tetris and Pong. (Funny, that’s the second Tetris post today… there must be some sort of conspiracy. Or maybe I’m just a tool. It could well be that.) It’s designed by this lass and I wish I had one right now.

  • Tourbillon Timepiece Defines Luxury

  • MP3 Players Usher in New Era of World Peace

    Here are two MP3 players that hopefully will bridge the gap between religions. The first is a concept device by Manworks Design. It’s a flash-based MP3 player that would have a chrome-plated steel body in the shape of a cross. The 1GB player, which would have an OLED-display, is meant to be worn around the neck. The second is a real watch marketed toward members of the Islamic faith… Read More

This classy, hastily-made steel sports watch has a quartz movement and definitely does none of the cool things a Wii can do including but not limited to: make fat kids pant, break TVs, and excite the young with boobies.
