You’ve Got Time On Your Hands: Ritot Projection Watch

Ritot Projection Watch

Why sport a plain, old, boring analog watch when you get can something like the Ritot? Instead of reading the time on its face or having it displayed on a digital display, the Ritot projects the current time on the back of your hand. It’s kind of like what those people from that movie called In Time had, only it displayed the amount of time they had left to live rather than the current time of day.

With the Ritot, you also don’t have to worry about people getting into your personal space anymore when they’re asking you for the time. Simply stretch your hand out and let them check it for itself. Aside from the time, Ritot also gives you access to your text messages, called ID, Facebook feed, Twitter updates, and many others.

Modillian smart strap

Smart watches are all the rage these days. Despite the added functionality, some people are iffy because they’re not to keen on the design and prefer the look of their existing analog watches. Well, for those people, there’s always the Modillian Smart Strap. It works with most traditional mechanical watches but adds smart functionality since the features are built right into the strap.

The Modillian connects to your mobile device via Bluetooth and vibrates whenever you have an incoming call or receive a message. It’s pretty basic, but if basic is all you need, then this might be worth looking into.

Tell The Time In Words: Till Watch

Till Watch

 

The Till watch tells time rather unconventionally, and that’s what makes it so cool, aside from its minimalist yet noticeable design. Instead of a face with numbers, an hour hand, and a minute hand, Till has a rotating black disc instead which provides a peek at a line of text, which will tell you what time it is in words. Rather, you can think of it as the watch “speaking” to you because it tells you what someone else would say if you had asked them for the time.

In these fast-paced times and digital world, using language in the watch is a fresh approach. With its original design the Till Watch captures the relationship between now and then. Instead of looking at time in a cyclical way, you are able to view it in a linear fashion.

The Till watch is available online for $125.

Sometimes, some people need a bit more motivation before they get moving. I’m sure you’ve heard of the saying about how the early bird always gets the worm.

Giving you some perspective on this is Mr. Jones’ newest timepiece called “Average Days.”

The watch features a 24-hour face that gives you a peek into what most people in the world are doing at that given time. These aren’t just random actions thrown together, as they were actually based on the data collected from the Centre For Time Use Research.

‘Loading…’ Watch Concept Makes You Infinitely Wait For Time

The ‘Loading…’ watch concept is definitely one of the most interesting ones that I’ve seen lately. It pays homage to the screen that gamers often find themselves faced with when loading up their video game of choice. It also looks like the progress bar of computers back when screens only came in black and white and it took close to a few minutes to get the system all booted up.

And now, thanks to Max, this load screen could be featured on your next watch. That is, if Tokyo Flash ever decides to go with the design and turn the concept into a reality.

Sun and Moon Watch Uses Celestial Bodies to Show You What Time It Is

Sun Moon Watch

Ever wondered how people could tell what time of day it was before watches were invented? Well, there were sun dials, water clocks, and candle clocks, but then there was also the celestial bodies. Obviously, looking at the sky won’t really tell you if it’s 3:15 or 3:45 in the afternoon, but really, what choice did they have?

Now you can tell time in a similar way that they did, only in a more developed and technological way with the Sun and Moon Watch. The name basically gives its most discerning feature away: instead of the usual watch face with hands and numerals, the watch features a crescent design instead where a disc with images of the ‘celestial bodies’ turns in the background.
