This particular model comes with GPS capabilities to boot in addition to G-SHOCK’s Multi-Band 6, and works under the guise of GPS Hybrid Atomic Timekeeping technology that will be able to deliver accurate timekeeping just about anywhere you are. This is made possible via the receiving of GPS satellite signals or terrestrial radio signals from up to six transmitters located around the world, based on one’s location and environment. There is also Tough Solar technology that ensures stable operation even when power-hungry functions are used.
All models will come with standard G-SHOCK technology such as shock resistance and 200M water resistance, a latitude indicator, airplane mode, dual dial world time (40 time zones, 27 cities + UTC), an LED super illuminator light, neo-brite luminous hands, daily alarm, day/date display, 1/20th second stopwatch and a countdown timer, with an asking price that some folks might choke at — $3,000 a pop.

At each CES, you can be sure that there will be interesting new devices that will be introduced to the market. Of course, many of us are interested in the latest and the greatest, but these are not necessarily found in the flashiest of booths. Vobot has worked out quite a charmer of a device, which is the Amazon Alexa-enabled clock.
This new timepiece will be Vobot’s latest AI smart home product, aptly known as the Vobot Clock which will be integrated with Amazon Alexa Voice Services (AVS), and you can expect it to debut at CES 2017 that is kicking off later this week. With Artificial intelligence (AI) and voice interaction being a hot topic last year, it does not look as though the hype and technologies surrounding AI will die down this year. Rather, it should even increase all the more. Amazon Echo is one of the most successful models of implementation, being the first smart home hub that hit the market. Vobot has decided to take advantage of the open platform known as Alexa (by Amazon), making use of AVS (Alexa Voice Service) and ASK (Alexa Skills Kit) as a third-party developer in order to deliver voice experiences for the Vobot Clock.
Based on the Amazon ecosystem, the Vobot Clock is a cost-effective smart alarm that comes with a slew of creative features. Where the sleep coach programme is concerned, you can be sure that the pre-set wakeup and bedtime solution will assist users to fall asleep faster and wake up earlier. The proactive reminder function will then inform or show users the right things at the right time. Not only that, there is a customizable alarm that allows consumers to wake up from their favorite tunes, a dot matrix display that makes everything clear at first sight; an internal 5W speaker which delivers crystal clear sound, all without having to hook up to any external amplifier.
The Vobot Clock is tipped to arrive with an asking price of a mere $35 a pop with an early February release.

When it comes to telling the time, there are many different ways of doing so, although the sundial has been more or less out of fashion for quite a while already ever since the clock and watch have made their presence known. Of course, you might want to wear a watch in addition to the digital clock on your smartphone, but this does not mean that you should ditch the clock altogether in your home. With the Fibonacci Clock that costs anywhere from $84.99 to $134.99 depending on the model, it is a truly unique — and of course, geeky method of telling the time.
This can be considered to be the ultimate clock for tinkerers and math geeks, where it boasts of 10 color palettes and a couple of lamp modes which will be able to show off the beauty of math. You can pick your DIY level, which is selected from a kit of parts to fully assembled. At the end of it all, three colors on the clock will matter: red and blue for the hours, and blue and green for the minutes. The minutes will be rounded to five minute increments, so a wee bit of brain power is required in order to perform some basic multiplication in order to obtain the precise timing.
