    Phosphor Kickstarts A New Touchscreen E-Ink Watch, The Touch Time

    To paraphrase Cracker, what the world needs now is another e-ink smart watch like I need a hole in the head. However, Phosphor has been in this game for years and I’m willing to give them at least the benefit of the doubt. Like the Pebble and the Strata, Phosphor has created a unique, feature-rich watch that adds some very interesting features to their well-known e-ink watch line and ups… Read More

  • First Hands-On With The Phosphor Reveal Crystal Watch

    The Phosphor Reveal is one of the coolest timepieces I’ve seen in a long time. This is an extremely simple digital watch with a surprising trick: it shows the time by “flipping” little jewels from dark to light. The face is actually covered in little crystal nubs but some of the nubs can retract into the body of the watch and, in essence, disappear. The watch contains a… Read More

  • Phosphor World Time Watch Full Review

    Phosphor watches can be credited with a very special honor. That being of the brand the officially popularized and mainstreamed e-ink watches. While they didn’t invent the concept, they made them cool enough and affordable enough for mainstream adoption.

  • Review: Phosphor's E-Ink World Time Watch

    I’m not a big fan of gimmick watches. While I love that guys like Tokyoflash are pushing design forward when it comes to wrist wear, I worry that much of their work is too esoteric and could alienate some potential watch nerds with their complexity. The biggest problem, I feel, is that on the low end the watch world is separated, like computer RPGs, into two two camps – the… Read More

  • Phosphor E-Ink Watch review

    After years of suffering, watch geeks are finally getting products dedicated to their quirky and specific tastes. Sure, any oldster can sport a gold Rolex, but what is an Emo kid with a gadget fetish to wear? A Swatch? Companies like Tokyoflash and Nooka have filled that techno-void with watches that are both high-tech and cool looking. Now… Read More

  • Psst… wanna win a watch?

    Our good friends at would like to give you guys a watch. Not just any watch, mind you. It will be an E-Ink watch and it will make you look so cool that you’ll ultimately reach the other end of the spectrum and become hot. But don’t take our word for it. Electronic ink is a high-contrast, low-power display technology. It is to ink what email is to mail: fast… Read More

  • Phosphor E Ink Watch reviewed

    The Phosphor E Ink watch costs about $250 and features the same e-ink technology found in the Kindle. You can choose one of 14 different face configurations, including white-on-black, and can potentially support two time zones because the analog and digital watches aren’t synced. The best thing is that the battery should last for years simply because of the low power consumption of… Read More
