Carbon Solar Watch Can Charge Your Battery On the Go

Energy Bionics Watch

Power banks come in handy when you need to recharge your device and are nowhere near a power outlet. Phone cases with built-in battery packs are another option, but they’re limited in availability to certain models only. An alternative to these is the Carbon solar watch by Energy Bionics.

Aside from being a classic-looking timepiece, it also functions as a backup power source for your smartphone or mobile devices that charge via a microUSB port.Continue Reading

Mr. Jones ‘Average Days’ Watch Displays What Average Joes Do Every Day

Mr Jones Average Days Watch

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. Similarly, people who are up and about early and those who use their time wisely are the ones who are moving up the ladders. 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.

Tokyoflash Kisai Maze Watch Makes You Work for the Time

Kisai Maze

This watch might just give you a headache whenever you glance at it to check what time it is, but it sure is a looker in more ways than one. Tokyoflash is known for their quirky and out-of-this-world watch designs and concepts. However, the Kisai Maze happens to be an actual product and it’s as outlandish as watches can get.

The watch’s LCD display doesn’t show you the time, but it features a maze instead. You don’t have to navigate through it or anything, though you’ll have to learn how to read the pathways right so you can get the time. Of course, you can just switch back to the regular digital display if you’re strapped for time, but where’s the fun in that?

Hit the break for a video showing the watch off, followed by links on where you can get it.
