Oru is a Smartwatch That Can Charge Your Phone, Too

Oru smartwatch

Of all the smartwatches on the market, Oru seems to be one of the smartest. So it hasn’t exactly hit the shelves yet, since it’s currently up for funding on Kickstarter, but the features that it comes with makes it a top contender for the title. The Oru is the first ever smartwatch that comes with a dual display: a full-color hi-res TFT touch screen and a low energy E-paper display so it can stay on 24/7 without draining the battery. Flipping from one display to the other is easy as pie, since all you’ll have to do is pull the watch crown and rotate.

The Oru runs on both Android and iOS and is powered by an 800 MHz single core processor with 512 MB RAM and 4 GB of storage. Speaking of batteries, did we mention that the smartwatch also comes with a built-in power bank so you can charge your other mobile devices on the go?

Memorigin Launches Optimus Prime and Bumblebee-themed Transformers Tourbillon Watches

Memorigin-Transformers-Tourbillon-watches

Watches from Swiss makers are extremely exquisite, but then watches coming out of Chinese manufacturers are more-or-less wearable art. Case in point, limited edition Memorigin Transformers Tourbillon watches with Optimus Prime or Bumblebee. Coming from the house of Memorigin – a Hong Kong-based watchmaker, these mechanical watches with Transformer Optimus Prime or Bumblebee designs on their dial feature matching straps.

Memorigin Transformers Tourbillon watches are available in 43mm wide steel dials. The Optimus Prime watch comes in polished dial, while the Bumblebee model is coated in black. If you like your watch façade to look perfect, you’ll be glad to know that dial plate of the watches is laser cut to look like the face of your favorite transformer character. Interestingly, yellow diamonds and blue sapphires have been used in the eyes of the Bumblebee or Optimus Prime respectively. These gems are also placed on a few hour markers on the case.

In the Memorigin Transformers Tourbillon Series, comprising Optimus Prime or Bumblebee themed watches, Memorigin will only produce 50 pieces each at $42,800 HKD, (approximately USD$5,500). Movie characters on your watch dial might seem a little odd, but if you find transformers cool, here’s a souvenir you can’t miss.

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.

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.
