While there’s plenty of hype going on about smartwatches these days, most of the watches out there solve fairly superfluous problems – like seeing that you have a phone call because you’re too lazy to get the phone out of your pocket.
While everyone is going a bit nutty speculating about Apple’s potential iOS smartwatch, Japanese watchmakers are pumping out their own interesting watches. This one includes a sound sensor making it work like the bar graphs on a digital VU meter.
This watch looks interesting, but I wasn’t surprised to learn that it was quite expensive. Apparently, fans of the Sparc MGS watch hounded Ventura to produced a newer and improved model, which is where the Sparc Sigma MGS watch comes in.
If Tony Stark had been born a century or two earlier, he would have probably skipped the high-tech Arc Reactor and gone with something more like the Tin Woodsman had – a pocket watch heart. This is what that watch would look like.
I look forward to the day where I can 3D print pretty much anything I need, from cell phone cases to watches to spare body parts. Many small items can already be 3D printed on the cheap, thanks to the advent of the personal 3D printer.
There may come a time when the ubiquitous loading screen that shows up in many games and computer software may no longer be needed, but if Tokyoflash approves this watch concept by a clever fellow named Max, we’ll always remember how we never cared for it at all.
Spending lots of time to tell the time seems a bit counterintuitive, and while Tokyoflash watches aren’t always easy to read, this new one is definitely worth a look, despite its complicated looking display.
Even though Instagram reportedly lost a significant number of users due to their TOS fiasco late last year, millions of people are still happily snapping away at their stylized Insta-pics.

It seems like this is the year that many manufacturers are trying to get into the fitness tracking wristband market, which has been largely dominated by the Nike+ FuelBand since it came out. Now LG has outed a gadget which seems like a mashup of many different devices, all put onto your wrist.
One of the things you may not expect to see at CES is wristwatches. Despite that fact, it’s not uncommon for companies to show up with geeky timepieces claiming to be the “world’s first” or “world’s most” this or that.
My local movie theater has a number of auditoriums with different screen sizes. While most of those theaters have flat screens, I’ve noticed that the larger auditoriums have screens that are actually curved. Apparently, that curvature has something to do with making the surface a uniform distance from the viewer’s eyes.
OK, so maybe you shouldn’t use a GPS tracker watch to spy on your loved ones, but you’ll be able to make sure that your little ones or older relatives are safe and sound. LockStar GPS watches are designed for families caring for children, the elderly, or anyone who you need to keep tabs on, ensuring that they will be found if lost.
If you’re active, it’s good to have a GPS watch. They have plenty of uses, especially if you run or cycle. Keeping track of your workout is one of the best features. The ones that also feature active navigation will make sure that you won’t get lost.
If you are looking for a watch that will keep track of time here on Earth, but you want to be as stylish as a Time Lord, check out this new Doctor Who watch, out just in time for the show’s 50th anniversary.
