  • LG undouches itself in two short days: The LG Watch/Phone concept photographed

    [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. Well, Matt and Devin stopped by the LG booth today and, surprise, the super secret watch was ready for them to photograph. All… Read More

  • 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

  • Nixon watch has Tetris, Pong built in

    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.

  • Nike Accepting Amp+ Orders

    Remember awhile back, Nike told everyone it was coming out with a remote control sport watch that would work with the Nike+iPod kit? Well if you don’t, too bad, because now you can finally order a shiny new Amp+ watch for a whopping $80. With a modern, futuristic design, Amp+ will tell you the time and let you access your Nike+iPod Sport kit via buttons on the side. You’ll be able… Read More

  • Nike Amp+ Watch Does The Dirty With The FCC

    Following the success of the Nike+iPod Sport Kit that’s taken the running world by storm is the Amp+ watch that commandeers your iPod nano while you’re jogging off that flab. It even has a fancy scrolling LED giving you updates on your workout. We’re still unsure of the official release, but you can check out the manual and test results in the mean time. Now get up and… Read More

  • Tourbillon Timepiece Defines Luxury

    When going out on the town and trying to pick up chicks, I usually settle for my Mickey Mouse Armitron watch. However, when I heard that Hickey was coming with me to pick up dudes in the restroom, I opted for something a bit classier. Meet the Tourbillon Timepiece from Avianne & Co. The ultimate definition of class and luxury, this $65,000 watch comes with a mother-of-pearl round face… Read More

  • Watch With Built-In PayPass

    Over in Turkey, a local bank has a new promotion that is going to make credit cards a thing of the past. In a deal with MasterCard, the bank is now offering a wristwatch with a built-in PayPass credit card. All you have to do is just swipe your watch at a counter that accepts PayPass and you’re good to go. No need to sign anything as long as the price of your total purchase is under… Read More

  • The Futurist: Simple Ways To Make Common Gadgets Better

    If your house is anything like the CrunchGear Mansion, it’s filled to the brim with gadgetry and electronica. And with all this newfangled convenience comes an equal dose of frustration. Like when your cell phone clock goes dead the second the A train pops underground. It’s almost enough to make you strap on your old Mickey Mouse wristwatch. So this got us to thinking — what… Read More

  • 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

  • The Wii Watch


    Can’t find a Wii this Christmas? Spend 200 GBP on a Wii watch! 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. It appears that is was made as a gift to European journos. Auction [eBay via WWR] Read More

  • TokyoFlash Biohazard: They Live Among Us

    TokyoFlash sells some fancy watches, including a little something that our own little Raj wears around the house. Now, however, we’ve got one that can detect aliens even without having to slice their outer skins to get at the milky green skin underneath. A press of the button sends the watch into scan mode and the various panels & readouts animate as if scanning the area for life forms. Read More

  • Chronotech Bluetooth Headset/Wristwatch Combo. Huh?

    File this one under WTF: Chronotech is dropping a Bluetooth watch and headset in one. The watch face pops off the band and then you put it into your ear. So it makes sense — Bluetooth watches are all the rage this year, turning from vaporware to everywhere in no time. Unfortunately, this thing looks like those free watches they used to give away with Burger King kid’s meals…… Read More

  • The Gama Watch Tells Time, RADs

    Sometimes we find gadgets on the Interwebs and we have no idea who the target demographic is. Others are aimed far more steadily at a specific audience. Take, as an example, this Gamma Watch. It’s not called a Gamma Watch just because it sounds cool, it’s called Gamma Watch because it’s got a freakin’ radiation detector in it. Sure, it doesn’t offer any… Read More

  • Abacus MobileWear Bluetooth Watch Hands On


    As a confirmed horological nut, I was fairly skeptical when I heard about the Fossil Abacus Bluetooth watch, the MobileWear. It is a watch that tells you when someone is calling your cellphone. It notifies you by vibrating and showing the name of the caller – if they’re in your address book – right on the watch face. You can also mute and hang-up on callers with the… Read More

  • Anlong MP4 Video Watch

    We’re unhealthily in love with watches here at CrunchGear, especially ones that can do things a bit more complicated than tell time. In this case, the MP4 watch from Shenzhen Adragon Digitek Co. Ltd. (gotta catch them all!). The watch, like its name implies, can play back MP4 videos and has a water-proof case. There’s also a microphone port, line-in, USB 2.0 compatibility, and a 9… Read More

  • Sony Ericsson Bluetooth Watch

    watches, this Sony Ericsson MBW-100 connects to your phone via Bluetooth and can control music playback using the buttons on the side. Unfortunately, there’s no caller ID like the Fossil watches, but this looks a bit more stylish with the sleek silver and black. Double unfortunately, it costs $399. So you’re paying four-hundy bones for something to control your cell phone music… Read More

  • m300 GSM Cell Phone Watch is the First Cell Phone Watch to Market

    <img src="http://tctechcrunch2011.files.wordpress.com/2007/01/A Super Nerd. And we're all for it.
