One of the most important things to keep track of when you’re mountain climbing is the time. More specifically, the time when the sun’s going to set, because visibility gets increasingly limited as the sun goes down.
Before the invention of timepieces, our ancestors aligned their schedules with the rising and setting of the Sun. Mammoth hunting when the Sun goes up, then chill at Hairy Guy 34’s cave when the Sun goes down.
While commercial pilots might not use this kind of watch to replace the computers they work with in Jumbo Jets, frequent travelers and private pilots might enjoy the goodies features on this latest Garmin watch.
Do you ever wonder how you spend your time, relative to the rest of world? While you’re bumming around, the vast majority might be working. While you’re eating, some might be getting ready to work out.
Every parent on the planet wants their kid to be happy and well-adjusted. That means at some point early in the kid’s life you have to give them the freedom to roam and play. The problem for parents is that giving children the freedom to go places and visit friends by themselves can be very nerve-wracking.
LEGO toys aren’t just for kids so it makes sense that LEGO watches wouldn’t be just for kids either. The company has introduced a line of watches specifically for adults. The LEGO watch collection for men and women will be launched in November and be called the LEGO Watch System.
We’re all living on borrowed time. Those on their deathbeds would kill to have just one more hour or one more minute or even just one more second to breathe the air and see the world before leaving it forever.
When you are doing something that requires a lot of thought and concentration it’s surprisingly easy to forget to breathe. For instance, when you’re zipping down the racetrack at 100mph or pulling 2Gs around a corner, you should breathe.
Watchmaker Click is making a name for itself by incorporating mechanisms from gadgets or electronics into their wristwatches. We saw that with the Keypad, the Switch and the Wallswitch. The company’s newest watch is no different; it looks and works just like an arcade button.
There are plenty of amazing watches out there, but this is the first watch I know of which allows you to evaluate the timing rate on the fly, so that you can fine-tune the mechanism, depending on the conditions you’re in.
Pledge to this campaign on Indiegogo if you want to wear a watch on your fingers. It’s called the Ring Clock, and uses 144 ultra-thin mono-color LEDs to display the time when you twist it. It’s a ring.
If you’ve been following Technabob for any period of time, you know we’re big fans of Tokyoflash and their unusual watches. Now, here’s a Tokyoflash watch that is kind of a big fan itself. That is, it’s based on the fan blades of a turbofan engine.
Several years ago we saw Alvin Aronson’s minimalist timepiece, which used wood and ceramic to replicate the seven segment digits commonly used in LCD and LED displays.
Instructables member alstroemeria took the idea further, creating a papercraft version of Aronson’s clock.
Who doesn’t like having a watch that looks like it’s from the future? Well I sure would like to have one, and I have to say that the Kisai Neutron from Tokyoflash would be perfect for humans and Cylons alike.
Clocks come in a bunch of shapes and sizes, but this clock made from a bike wheel is certainly unique. The resulting wall clock is quite big, but definitely something interesting to hang in your pad if you’re a bicyclist.
Before the advent of modern handheld gaming, some of us had to find ways to entertain ourselves on the train ride to work. One popular pastime was to see how quickly you could stop the timer on your digital watch.
