Its new Kisai Spider Acetate watch has arguably set a new standard for inscrutability.  Read More

The Neptune Pine lets users flip their wrist and check a lot more than just the time

When we covered the Neptune Pine watch earlier this year, our first thought was that it looked like the smartwatch that tech lovers have been waiting for. That was immediately followed by a second thought – is this set of rough renderings ever going to lead to an actual watch we can buy? It hasn't happened quite yet, but things are moving in the right direction. Neptune has developed a working prototype and launched a Kickstarter campaign that has attracted a half-million dollars in pledges in just over two weeks.  Read More

The Visus Watch from Mykonos Design features a stationary hand capable of accurately telli...

Analog watches with just one hand aren't unheard of, but they are still far from the norm. The problem with this novel approach is that accuracy tends to take a back seat. The Visus Watch from Mykonos Design aims to change this.  Read More

The Jazzmaster Face 2 Face combines classic and sporty looks

In a fashion-obsessed world, no single timepiece works for every possible scenario. Perhaps that's why Hamilton Watches designed a timepiece with two distinct looks and personalities. The new Jazzmaster Face 2 Face combines two separate dials in a single watch.  Read More

Adidas just announced the miCoach Smart Run, a touchscreen smartwatch with a heart monitor...

It looks like the early smartwatches have been split into two camps. On one hand, we have watches like the Galaxy Gear and Pebble that aim, with varying degrees of success, to put basic smartphone features on your wrist. Then we have wearable fitness trackers that are gradually sprouting screens and becoming more like those straightforward smartwatches. Today Adidas added to that list with one of the smartest fitness watches to date, the miCoach Smart Run.  Read More

The Garmin D2 pilot watch is billed as a wrist-mounted avionics package

While the jury is still out on whether or not we are entering the era of the smartwatch, scuba divers, yachtsmen and airplane pilots would agree that the wristwatch hasn't been completely supplanted by the mobile phone.
