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.

Kapture is a Wristwatch That Records Your Every Word

Kapture

Want a record of everything that you’ve said? You can either call the NSA or slap this contraption on your wrist. Obviously the former isn’t an actual option, so your best bet is Kapture. It’s a wristwatch-slash-wearable audio recorder that records your every word. The catch is that it only has enough memory to store 60 seconds of sound, so you can only go back and listen to the last minute of your immediate past on playback.

Kapture constantly and continuously records audio. Given its limited storage, it is also continuously erasing data and recording over previous recordings, too. Its creators are seeking $300,000 for seed funding and will be launching the project on Kickstarter on September 3rd.

Galaxy Gear smartwatch

Rumors about the iWatch have been floating around for months. Samsung, being one of Apple’s toughest competitors, obviously wouldn’t be very far behind with their own smartwatch if that were the case. Word on the blogosphere is that Samsung is getting ready to unveil their Galaxy Gear smartwatch next month.

There are already a whole bunch of digital watches in the market with added features and functionality, like the Pebble watch, but the big guns in the mobile industry haven’t unveiled their own smart gizmos…yet.

The competition between Samsung and Apple is fiercer than ever. It’s been rumored for months that Apple is working on a smart watch, but Samsung is working actively to beat them to the punch.

‘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.

These Limited Edition Pac-Man Watches Are Only for Rich Gamers

Pacman Watch

Pac-Man has been around for decades. He’s one of those characters that people of all ages and generations can recognize, right off the bat. So it really shouldn’t come as a surprise that Pac-Man himself and the four villainous Ghosts who were always after him have now been immortalized in Romain Jerome’s special collection of limited edition space watches.

And we do mean a ‘space’ watch in the literal sense, because these timepieces are forged using steel that has been fused with fragments of the Apollo 11. You know, the spacecraft that took Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin to the moon.

Romain has kept the design playful but pretty classy at the same time, which is obviously something that’s not easy to achieve. The only downside is that this watch is crazy expensive at $17,800. That’s the price of several Rolex watches and then some.

They’ll be available at Colette in Paris from September 3rd to September 8th, in case you can actually afford it. In that case, lucky you.

I’m Touchscreen Watch Is Awkwardly Named

By David Ponce

So that’s its name: “I’m.” We know, weird. Nevertheless, it’s a watch with a curved 1.5-inch, 240 x 240 TFT screen with capacitive touch capabilities. The device links up to your phone via Bluetooth for caller ID information as well as data tethering. You can also use it to do the kinds of things that fishing around in your pocket for your phone might be inconvenient. Like getting quick stock quotes, getting a preview of an email, viewing an image gallery, etc. It’s alleged to be running a modified version of Android 1.6 and has 64MB RAM and 4GB storage. It’s a bit like those watches made up of an iPod nano, only with phone features.

The watches start at €249 ($342USD) and go up from there, as there appear to be versions blinged out with some gold and jewels, although these are on pre-order at the moment. However, very little is known about this company so we’re not going to give you any go-aheads until actual products are in customers’ hands. We won’t lie though: we’d be very disappointed if any of our readers has €10,000 to spend on a fancy watch. And yes, some models cost that much.
