Vachen is a Kickstarter-funded smartwatch that aims to approach the market from a different angle to its competitors. The device is pitched as a traditional watch that's been upgraded to include a number of smart features such as text and email notifications, and with its traditional timepiece aesthetics, it offers an interesting, though not entirely unique take on wearable tech.  Read More

The Breitling Emergency 2 watch has a built-in rescue beacon

Emergency beacons are great insurance for aviators and sailors, but they aren't worth much if a disaster leaves you in one place and the beacon in another. Just to be safe, you might as well strap the beacon to your wrist, which is what the Breitling Emergency II does. The Swiss-made wrist chronograph watch provides those who travel in remote, risky places with a dual-channel emergency satellite transmitter that activates with a twist and a yank.  Read More

The We5S adds a luxury mechanical timepiece to the iPhone 5

For some time now, the rise of the mobile phone has been seen by many as the death knell of the watch. Why, they ask, would anyone carry around a device that just tells the time when their phone can do that and much more? Smartwatches look set to bring the wristwatch back in style by bringing smartphone functions to a wristwatch form factor, but WATCHe of Switzerland has taken a different approach to combine the two with the We5S – a luxury mechanical watch set in a re-positionable frame designed to fit the iPhone 5.  Read More

At the 2013 Geneva Motor Show in March, Ferrari unveiled its latest flagship supercar, elegantly titled LaFerrari. It's a beast of a machine sporting almost 1,000 horsepower, and we featured a full write-up (with plenty of photos) at the time of its unveiling.

Okay, maybe it isn’t quite that common, but it’s almost comical how many big companies are reportedly working on smartwatches.
