NOOKRONO, Chronograph Watch by Nooka

NOOKRONO, Chronograph Watch by Nooka

You know I’m a huge fan of Nooka, purveyor of the most unique watches you can decorate your wrist with, but all their timepieces were digital, until now. The NOOKRONO is their first chronograph and true to Nooka form, it’s eye catching and minimalistic while retaining a sexy level of futurism.

The Moto Gear Must-Have

The MEDA is an ingenious addition to any rider’s regular gear that gives them extra visibility to other drivers by using integrated lights that work in tandem with the motorcycle’s existing braking and turn signal system. The backpack is so lightweight and ergonomic that riders will even want to use it when they’re not carrying cargo. See it in action —->

Body Fuel

Body Fuel

I am training hard and on a mission to knock off some excess weight, so I totally understand the need to eat the right food at the right time. According to my trainer, the timing of our meals should be set, which is why the FuelME concept is apt for us. It is a customizable and sustainable meal box that features room for utensils, snacks and supplements. One can carry three to six meals at a time and the food remains fresh as ever.

Rethinking the Ruler

Rethinking the Ruler

Duplo might be a simplistic twist on the ruler but its basic redesign gives it much greater functionality! A sliding component makes it easy to draw predetermined line lengths in a flash. Just slide it to the desired position and go! It also makes it quick and easy to identify and save the length of measured objects without having to peer closely or line up. Just snap it on and slide it closed for perfect measurements each time!
