Timex Ironman GPS watch

Timex is well known for rolling out GPS watches for the sports enthusiast, and with the $99 Timex Ironman GPS watch, their latest effort is no different. In fact, Timex claims that it is going to be the most simple GPS watch that they have launched to date, and we are simply not surprised at all with that claim. In fact, it boasts of the latest antenna technologies alongside an easy to use interface which would appeal to just about anyone, be it a seasoned triathlete or your everyday fitness enthusiast who would like to get a spot of running, swimming and cycling in from time to time.

TIMEX President & CEO Tobias Reiss-Schmidt, shared, “Our IRONMAN collection has been helping athletes cross finish lines since 1986, and we know that athletes want to do what they love, not stand around and push buttons, so we made it simpler without any compromise. TIMEX antenna technology is top of the line, and there are no hassles or extra frills to get in the way of your run. It really is the simplest GPS watch you’ll ever use.”

With the latest satellite acquisition technology within keeping track of your progress, you can also opt to share your fitness record with popular running tracking apps. Charging the Timex Ironman GPS watch is a snap — just use a micro-USB cable to hook it up to your computer and you’re good to go. No more hassles with looking for an extra charger, or to scrounge around for yet another cable. Being lightweight and easily accessible, the Ironman GPS features multisport training functionality for swimming, biking, and running, in addition to a slew of other metric displays, interval timers, and a race mode. Regardless of how far you have come in your fitness adventure, it should still have enough left in its tank to help the most dedicated of athletes complete their goals.

Expect the Ironman GPS watch to arrive in black and white styles that can be further enhanced via $14.95 interchangeable colorful straps.

Carah timepiece offers safety to boot

Not all timepieces are created equal. Some of them happen to be far more advanced than the others, and K-ICT Born2Global Centre’s vision for a unique device that is not only capable of telling the time, but also to ensure protection for the wearer arrives in the form of the Carah safety watch. Of course, the Carah safety watch will continue to remain a dream if it is not fully funded on Kickstarter, but we do believe that it is definitely on the right track. The Carah comes across as a real analogue watch that features smart capabilities as well as a built-in SOS safety alert.

Carah, should it drop the ‘h’, would mean ‘friend’ in Irish, and ‘beloved’ in Latin. This is the unique fruit of a computer science professor and a mechatronics expert’s collaboration, resulting in a smart safety watch which delivers not only style, but also functionality and personal security. While it looks like any other elegant analogue timepiece at first glance, there is more than meets the eye with Carah. It is more than able to sound an alarm in the event of an emergency. In order to activate the alarm, all that the user needs to do is to instigate a two-second push and hold of the watch, where it will then alert the watch holder’s guardians and emit a loud siren.

This means it is extremely easy and fast to activate such an intuitive action, while GPS information of the person seeking help is also sent out. This will allow the chosen guardians to be able to respond accordingly. Depending on the configuration beforehand, these selected guardians can be virtually anyone, including campus police or their community of helpers. This will definitely provide the owner with a sense that help is but a touch away. Other features in Carah include the ability to find your phone, audio recording capability and a one-touch timer.

New Blackjack watch is a beauty to behold

Timepieces are more of a fashion accessory these days than a tool that we use to tell the time. Sure, watches are useful to wear, but the traditional time telling method has been more or less made obsolete in the cities and urban areas thanks to our smartphones and computers that provide a constant reminder on what time it is. However, there is still room for watches, as smartwatches have proven that it is not going to phase out the old school timepieces, which is why we are excited to bring the Todd Snyder + Timex Blackjack Watch to the consciousness of everyone else.

Sporting a stealthy and sophisticated look, the all new Blackjack Watch from Todd Snyder and Timex has been inspired by a sporty 1970s style from the Timex archives. Of course, since we are in the new millennium and are about to call the second decade to a close, it has been updated in a modern blackout palette. This timepiece does have an edgy look to it, being the latest in an ongoing collaboration between the celebrated menswear designer and the iconic American watch brand. In fact, the Blackjack watch would pay homage to the stylish drivers of Formula One in the 1960s and 70s.

Sporting speed dials and roulette wheels, the Blackjack evokes the noir glamour of fast cars, hot tires and midcentury Monaco casinos, all encapsulated in a sleek New York style. The Todd Snyder + Timex Blackjack Watch will borrow distinctive details from that archival original, where there will be urbane updates in the form of a black finished case as well as a military inspired nylon strap. Looking good is not the only thing, as it has to function well, which is why it comes with features such as 50 meter water resistance and quartz movement.

The Blackjack Watch will retail for $138 apiece and is extremely versatile to be used regardless of the environment you are in.

Sequent is the first kinetic self-charging smart watch in the world

When it comes to smart watches, most of the time we would think of the Apple Watch. After all, it is the marketing juggernaut from Cupertino that has pushed smart watches into mainstream consciousness, and while Apple continues to maintain a level of secrecy over the sales numbers of their Apple Watch, other industry players such as Huawei have also jumped aboard the bandwagon. However, there are other players that are in the smart watch market as well, and Sequent is one interesting proposition for those who intend to get their feet wet without wanting to commit a whole wad of cash upfront. What makes the Sequent smart watch so special?

For starters, the Sequent smart watch is touted to be the first kinetic self-charging timepiece in the whole world from the smart watch range. In other words, there is no need for battery power to keep this thing chugging, which does away with the need to tote around an additional charger whenever you travel, and neither do you need to hunt down those pesky cell button batteries from time to time. As long as the Sequent smart watch is able to detect a level of movement, it should be able to generate enough juice to keep it chugging along just fine.

This revolutionary “SuperCharger” hybrid smart watch boasts of a major breakthrough in technology, where it claims to be able to deliver infinite power supply. Apart from that, being a smart watch it will arrive with a slew of integrated sensors, from a heart rate sensor for fitness buffs, to GPS tracking and a notification system, all of which are connected via Bluetooth 4.0 to your smartphone using its proprietary Biofeedback health & sport app. The asking price for the Sequent smart watch stands at $149 apiece, which makes it highly affordable but bear in mind that it does not have the kind of apps ecosystem that Android Wear and WatchOS have.

Robert Geller is no stranger in the world of timepiece fashion too, having previously partnered on five consecutive runway presentations at New York Fashion Week: Men’s. Robert Geller shared, “I have been working with G-SHOCK for several years, and was very pleased when we decided to create a watch together. I wore a G-SHOCK watch throughout my teenage years, so it is really exciting to be able to make my own, more grown up version. For the past ten years, I have been producing my ready to wear collection in Japan because I love the quality and care of Japanese craftsmanship. G-SHOCK shares this same love, which is why this collaboration is a natural fit for us.”

The GST200RBG-1 is one of Geller’s “babies”, so to speak, boasting of a black ion plated stainless steel metal band, case and buttons, complete with gold accents on the face as well as a dark fuchsia second hand which makes up his most recent collection. All of the elements will come together to compose of an image of the Tokyo city lights against the buildings at night.

Apart from having G-SHOCK’s legendary structure of shock resistance and 200M water resistance, there are also other technologies thrown into the mix such as an auto super illuminator LED light, neo-brite luminous hands, world time (31 time zones + UTC), five daily alarms, 1/100th second stopwatch and countdown timer and 12/24 hour formats, all crammed in a 52.4mm case. Expect the GST200RBG-1 to cost $420 a pop from this month onward.

Acer jumps on board the smartwatch bandwagon with their latest release, the Acer Leap Ware. This is clearly an unprecedented venture by the PC-manufacturing company, as they have more or less dealt with desktops, laptops, 2-in-1 hybrid devices, and of course, tablets in recent years.

What kind of hardware will the new WSD-F20 arrive with? For starters, there is the built-in, low-power GPS and full color map functionality that works great even without an Internet connection. Not only that, it will work great in areas that do not have any kind of cellular service, which will then free users up to be able to fully enjoy their adventures. The timepiece itself will be enhanced via richly-designed and easy-to-read map data from Mapbox, and all maps can be downloaded beforehand to the WSD-F20 before you embark on the next great adventure.

There is also the brand new Location Memory app which instantly reads the user’s existing location, and will be directly accessed simply by pressing a button that is located on the side.

To add more value, Casio’s Moment Setter app will alert the user to important moments when hiking, cycling, fishing, or even enjoying a spot of snow or paddle sports. All that the user needs to do is to set conditions to automatically receive important alerts, including the best possible fishing times, a rest break interval, as well as sunrise/sunset times.

Tory Burch reveals first hybrid smartwatch for the year

Tory Burch is more than happy to reveal its very first range of smartwatches that will hit the market this coming holiday season, where this particular line is said to extend the brand’s collection of timepieces even more. It is certainly encouraging to know that they are still going strong in this aspect, having first launched in the fall of 2014. The latest hybrid smartwatch range will be based on THE COLLINS, which comes across as a clean-lined, menswear-inspired design that happens to be one of the best selling timepieces from them.

Arriving in a quartet of distinct styles that will include a navy perforated leather strap with pops of red; a grosgrain fabric strap in a classic navy and ivory color combination; and gold-tone bracelets with toprings in orange or navy, you can be sure that fashionistas will be spoilt for choice.

The Tory Burch Collins hybrid smartwatch has been deemed to be the ultimate convergence of Tory Burch design alongside wearable technology, merging the elegance and simplicity of an analog watch with the capabilities of a world-class activity tracker. It might not look like much on the surface, but you can synchronize it to a smartphone over Bluetooth, making use of its dedicated app that plays nice with both iOS and Android platforms, to take advantage of several features.

Some features include precision timekeeping that changes time zones automatically when you travel, having a second time zone so that you know what time it is back home, notification technology that discreetly indicates when you have a phone call, text or email, activity tracking capability that automatically tracks and monitors daily activities, while keeping track of the length and quality of sleep with the Tory Burch Collins hybrid smartwatch app. Interestingly enough, this is one of the few smartwatches that do not require a charger, since it runs on coin cell batteries that enable extended use.

First connected Casio G-SHOCK Gravitymaster revealed

gravitymaster-bt-mastergCasio’s obsession with rolling out quality timepieces has not stopped over the years, but rather, it has strengthened. The company has revealed its Gravitymaster G-Shock series in the past, but none of them have been up to the quality of this year’s model at Baselworld 2017 — where it is touted to be the first ever connected Gravitymaster G-Shock that has been released. This all new Master of G model will boast of Bluetooth connectivity that will hook up to your smartphone via an app, making it all the more versatile than ever before.

The Casio G-Shock Gravitymaster GPW2000-1A is the first-ever Bluetooth connected model under part of the Master of G series, where it has been specially built for aviation experts. What makes it so special? Well, it comes with connected GPS capabilities that include Mission Stamp, which is a function that will not only record time and location, it can also transmit the information via Bluetooth over to a special Smartphone Link app. This can then be viewed within a flight log.

The GPW2000-1A also carries the distinction of being the very first Gravitymaster model that comes with a longitude indicator, apart from a latitude indicator. This will add a key function to record travel location and history for pilots when they carry out their missions. Additional premium features that Casio has thrown into the mix include a sapphire crystal for minimal scratching, carbon fiber second hand, carbon fiber insert band and a unique carbon band lock insert, where all of these prevents loosening due to heavy vibrations.

Not only that, the GPW2000-1A will arrive with triple time adjust that is made possible thanks to Bluetooth connectivity and G-SHOCK’s GPS Hybrid Wave Ceptor technology. This results in even more accurate timekeeping regardless of where you are, thanks to the receiving GPS satellite signals or terrestrial radio signals from up to half a dozen transmitters worldwide, based on the current location and environment. Don’t expect the new GPW2000-1A to be cheap though, as it has an asking price of $800 when it becomes available from May 2017 onward.
