With the world waiting to see if the rumors of an Apple iWatch will come to be… other manufacturers are taking their own approaches to the Smartwatch. Remember the Pebble Watch? One reason to take a look at this new bridge to your smartphone, via your wrist, is the controls. The Dew Motion iStick Playtime (iSport Playtime) is targeted towards sporty folks and is more of an armband than a watch. The Playtime can be worn on your wrist or forearm or attached to your bike, backpack or other gear. Read on for more details.
Don’t look at the Harry Winston Opus XIII Watch if you easily get vertigo. The watch face has a sliding trap door, eleven spinning triangles as hour hands, and fifty-nine minute hands. to be completely honest looking at the watch face I can’t even tell what time it is (my guess is 10:05?).
The watch was developed in collaboration with Ludovic Ballouard and features a 44.25 mm case of 18K white gold, a hand sewn black alligator leather strap, a sapphire crystal front and back, a 35-hour power reserve, and is water resistant to 30-meters. No idea on price yet, but considering there are only going to be 130 units made I assume they will be expensive.
The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona Platinum Watch grows on you. It tends to starts off with a love it or hate it type response. For those in the latter category, a decent percentage start to like it the more they look at it. So whether you like it or not here are the details on this 50th anniversary of the original.
All metal bits on the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona Platinum watch are 950 platinum. The bezel is Cerachrom brown ceramic and the dial is ice blue. The movement is a 4130 self-winding style. Good luck getting one though as they will be made in very limited quantities.
Some of us lucky men, think Tom Selleck, can sport the hairy chest look without the aid of a printed sweater. For you unlucky fellows, think Justin Bieber, there is a sweater that will take you from boy to man in an instant.
This Hairy Chest Sweater ($62) comes printed with thick luxuriant chest hair and a gold chain. Get yours now and cover that embarrassingly hairless body. Don’t let the man-scapers slow you down.
At first glance the Ressence Type 3 Watch looks like they just rearranged the hands in a clever fashion. Look closer and you will see that there really aren’t any hands, at least not in the typical watch style. The time is displayed via rotating disks. Look again and you will notice that there is no crown on the Ressence Type 3. While those design features are pretty neat, the real stunner is the way the entire face is filled with a liquid. This makes the indications seem to be directly on the surface of the crystal face. Neat indeed.
The watch is wound by turning the back case. Same goes for setting the date and time. Just waiting to hear more about pricing and availability.
A good pair of cleats makes a big difference when trying to get traction. This holds true for soccer, football, rugby, baseball, and more. Cleatskins aims to protect your cleats/studs from dulling or wearing down. They will also protect your flooring. Imagine the damage cleats can do on hardwood, laminate, and tile floors. They make the Cleatskins for just about every type of sport shoe including bike shoes with toe clips. There are tons of styles and colors available here.
Take your classy 3-liter box wine, throw away the box, put the bag of wine inside the Menu Baggy Winecoat ($63) and you are officially a wino. All jokes aside, this Winecoat (not sure what that term means) looks more like a wine purse to me. And, how can you argue with the equivalent of four bottles of wine in your purse. Perfect for shindigs in the park, boating, concerts, and long days of shopping. Video of this wine purse after the break.
Tangled-up earbuds are a common problem. Zipbuds aren’t the first to try and make tangle-free earbuds, remember the CordCruncher or the a-JAYS Four? The main difference with the Zipbuds Tangle-Free Earphones is the zippered approach. Most of the earphones cord is embedded into a zipper. Clever and pretty cool.
The cables are made of military grade Aramid for strength, this cabling runs up the “vertebrae” of the zipper. While I can’t speak to the sound quality, haven’t actually plugged them in yet, they look great and don’t tangle. A cheesy promo video after the break.
Just when you thought “made in America” was a thing of the past… Shinola makes a hand-assembled watch… get this… in Detroit. The Shinola Runwell Watch ($550) is made up of nearly four-dozen Swiss made parts and includes an quartz Argonite 1069 movement, domed sapphire crystal, an illuminated dial, a stainless steel case, a vegetable-tanned Horween leather band, and your choice of 40mm or 47mm bezels.
Flip the watch over and you see an individually numbered and serialized back plate that reads “Built in Detroit”. Shinola will only be making 1,500 Runwell watches and plans on shipping them in July 2013.
