The Death Watch will make sure you keep things in perspective

How the universe as we know it came into existence is a hotly debated topic. One truth that we know for sure, is that we’re all going to die one day. Well, we know our bodies will stop functioning and will slowly return to being part of the Earth. The theories on what happens after that are varied and sometimes insane. However, we know when we’re close to dying that we often stop paying so much attention to the pettier aspects of life, and what really matters comes into focus in a big way. We’ll say things we’ve always wanted to say but didn’t think we could, take more risks, and try to see more of the world.

If you wish you could have that kind of perspective all the time, then why not wear a constant reminder that nothing is permanent? The Death Watch uses your geographic location, age, and some other health and lifestyle questions to calculate your approximate time of death. It counts down everything from years to seconds. Of course, it also tells the local time, otherwise it would be sort of silly and somewhat depressing to wear a death counter watch.

This has a silicone strap, and is available in either black or white. It will cost you around $81 should you be interested in having your ego constantly in check. Some may view this as a bit morbid, but really it’s the best way to make yourself realize that the actions you make in this life should be the ones you would make on your deathbed. Creepy, but awesome.

Available for purchase on Firebox

Apple Watch revealed

The world of smartwatches have certainly grown by leaps and bounds in recent times, and Apple too, did manage to state their intent in this particular department through the unveiling of the new Apple Watch. Sure, Samsung of South Korea has its fair share of wearable technology, smartwatches especially in the vein of the Samsung Galaxy Gear, and it does not look as though they are going to quake in their boots anytime soon with the Apple Watch. In fact, the initial reaction has been rather underwhelming, not to mention Tim Cook not saying anything about the Apple Watch’s battery life which has led to speculation that the battery might not even last through the whole day. Still, let us see what there is in store for the Apple Watch underneath the hood, shall we?

The Apple Watch has been dubbed to be Apple’s “most personal device ever” (and we do not doubt that), where it features revolutionary new technologies as well as a pioneering user interface, all delivered in a design which will pay homage to the rich tradition of precision watchmaking. Apple Watch would usher in a specially designed and engineered Digital Crown which will offer an innovative method to scroll, zoom and navigate. The Digital Crown happens to be an interesting navigation tool that is reminiscent of the leaps made by the iPod Click Wheel and iPhone Multi-Touch, where user interaction is concerned.

With the Apple Watch, you will be able to communicate in new ways right from your wrist by sending and receiving messages, being able to answer calls to your iPhone, and with Digital Touch, send something as personal as your own heartbeat to another person. Not only that, it also includes comprehensive health and fitness apps which would encourage the wearer to lead a healthier lifestyle. One can choose from three distinct collections, namely Apple Watch, Apple Watch Sport and Apple Watch Edition. Expect the Apple Watch to arrive in early 2015 from $349 onward.

With a couple of iconic Star Wars watches that will help you tell the time, you might be coaxed to be punctual from now on thanks to Vader’s design that sports plenty of red details, or if you happen to have an aim in life but somehow never really managed to hit the target, then the Stormtrooper model with white details would definitely come in handy. After all, the Imperial army did not manage to rise to its position of power without making sure that everything else ran like clockwork, could they? The Star Wars Imperial Chronometers are officially licensed Star Wars timepieces, where the multiple dials depict day, date, and time, and it sports Japanese movement instead of something from the planet Naboo.

LG G Watch R set to light up IFA 2014

lg-g-watch-rThe smartwatch industry certainly looks as though it is about to take off in a huge way, especially when you take into consideration how all the major players in the mobile device market are starting to look into the possibility of churning out a range of such devices. South Korean company LG has just revealed their latest masterpiece, which is known as the LG G Watch R, and this bad boy looks all set to make an appearance at IFA 2014 that is happening in Berlin, Germany, early next month. What has LG done to make the LG G Watch R more unique than anything else in the market would be the fact that this is the first watch-style wearable device in the world that sports a circular Plastic OLED (P-OLED) display, which means it will make full use of its watch face. Now that is something that the rest of the smartwatches in the market are unable to lay claim to.

As mentioned above, the most eye-catching feature of the LG G Watch R would be its 1.3-inch full circle P-OLED display that is more than capable of rolling out stunning image clarity, even if you were to stand under bright sunlight in a hot and sunny afternoon, and your eyes will still be greeted by superb clarity regardless of the angle where you view it from. Underneath the relatively tiny hood would be a powerful 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, which will have 4GB of internal memory in tow, 512MB RAM and a durable 410mAh battery.

The LG G Watch R will run on Android Wear, and this translates to its ability to effortlessly play nice alongside all of the other compatible apps that are available in the Google Play Store. If you happen to lead a really active lifestyle, then you will be pleased to hear that the LG G Watch R itself comes with an Ingress Protection Rating of IP67, which means it is capable of running for up to half an hour in one meter of water. There is no word on pricing just yet, but availability details will be shared at IFA 2014 later.

The Kisai Radioactive LED Watch will make you feel like you’re living in a disaster movie

We get stuck doing the same things over and over again. Life isn’t exactly thrilling when you get a groove going and have it turn into a rut. We use entertainment such as movies and video games to pull our minds out of the loop of work, eat, sleep, rinse and repeat. Once you’ve found a few genres you enjoy, you start to buy things that remind you of your favorite movies, shows, and games to keep your spirits up at work.

If action or horror are your preferred style for entertainment, then you’ve probably pondered what a nuclear meltdown or zombie apocalypse would do to your life. If there’s one trinket that would make you think that you’re not only playing games and watching shows about this kind of world, but living in them, it would be the Kisai Radioactive LED Watch. This is a stainless steel case and strap that feature a watch face that looks as though you’re counting down the minutes to the world’s end.

Of course, it’s really just telling you the time in a complicated way, as TokyoFlash is known for those sort of shenanigans. To read this, one of the staggered pieces on the top three bars will flash, showing you the hours, the minutes are displayed in the curved middle, and the bottom radioactive sign indicates the exact minute. The battery is rechargeable, and the wrist strap can be adjusted to fit a variety of sizes. If this fits your aesthetics and doesn’t look like it would be too crazy for your personal style, you’ll be looking at $159 for this elaborate time piece.

The smartwatch industry is certainly looking as though it is moving in the right direction, there is no doubt about it. However, with the likes of the Moto 360 being announced left and right, is there a market for “dumber” timepieces, so to speak? Fitness buffs might be looking forward to the Wellograph sapphire crystal wellness watch that happens to be the winner of CES 2014′s Innovations Design and Engineering Award.

Wellograph happens to be an activity tracker, in addition to being a heart rate monitor and a running watch, all crammed into one, delivering live, insightful information concerning the wearer’s activity thanks to a slew of high performance sensors (9-axis motion sensor and tri-LED integrated heart rate sensor). The Wellograph will also be able to measure other indicators such as steps, pace, idle time, calories burned, and heart BPM, among others.

With a sapphire crystal face that is on par with that of luxury timepieces, you can be sure that its scratch proof surface (other than diamonds) will serve you well for the longest time. It has a 7 day battery life and will support iOS, Android, and Windows Phone platforms – sorry, BlackBerry users.
