Reduced to Time (but with some surprises)

Reduced to Time (but with some surprises)

The minimal Reductionism watch makes time-telling easy by displaying large numbers on a simple LED grid, but it’s also multifunctional as an indicator of incoming calls or text messages. Connecting wirelessly via Bluetooth, the watch notifies the user of calls with a quick vibrating pulse and transforming blue glow while text messages are indicated with red glow. Check out the vid to see it in action!

And Now It’s Time For A nWatch

And Now It’s Time For A nWatch

I love the passion that drives designer Mohammad Mahdi Azimi, he dishes out great Nokia concepts even in the troubled times of this erstwhile phone giant. Let’s take a look at his Nokia LUMIA Watch concept. With features like pressure indicator, compass, altimeter, GPS, Calorie meter, 4G LTE and syncing with the Lumia series of phones, this one is a good competition for the iWatch, what do you think?

Sneak a feel at the time...

Sneak a feel at the time…

We’ve all been in situations where we’d like to check the time, but avoid doing so because others might consider it rude. With the ultra-minimalist touch watch it’s possible to read the time both visually and tactilely so you can check it any time without being obvious! Simply press a button to trigger the hands to move to the correct time and feel for the small and large hands.

The iWatch Wet Dream

The iWatch Wet Dream

While some of my friends argue that an iWatch would be a failure, the success of TikTok and LunaTik go to prove that wearable gadgets on the wrist are more than welcome. Keeping this in mind, designer Tolga Tuncer capitalizes on the iWave with his version of the iWatch concept.

Time for All

Time for All

The Time Timer Watch PLUS incorporates visual, audible as well as tactile alerts to broaden the reach of its users to include those with special needs or anyone who simply has trouble with time tracking. Time is depicted as a red disc that disappears as time moves, and user defined intervals are signaled by both sound alarms and vibration. With an easy-to-use interface, it’s perfect for blind or deaf users, or anyone who just needs a productivity push.

iWatch

iWatch

iKnow, we all waiting in anticipation for something spectacular to come forth and the iWatch rumors are pretty strong. So if we were to indulge in fantasy for a minute, then this is how Esben Oxholm thinks the Apple team would design the phone/watch. Heavily inspired by the look of the iPhone 5 and sporting a minimalistic, sleek look, the watch is crafted with black aluminum on the outside and a thin layer of soft matte rubber on the inside.

Low-Tech Timepiece

Low-Tech Timepiece

The beautiful and simplistic OWO watch features a minimal face with white hands against a pure white background. Hard to see the time right? Wrong! Simply shake the watch and iron particles will stick to the magnetic hands making the hour and minutes visible. The thoughtful design encourages interaction and lets the user control their awareness of the hour rather than feel rushed and distracted by ticking hands.

Timed Ring

Timed Ring

The Ring Clock is a simple approach to marry two of the biggest and much needed accessories that we use. Yes, we wear rings and we wear watches, and it’s not the first time that the two have been integrated. What I really like about the Ring Clock is that it is designed simple, with the clock aspect integrated into the ring’s band. The ring rotates as time goes by, and thus showing the current time.

Time in Color

Time in Color

Gotta love this clever take on the modern watch! The Colorclock redefines the way we envision time by slowly transitioning the hue of the face across the color spectrum as time goes by. Now you get up five minutes to green, grab some lunch at half-past yellow, and go to bed at the stroke of purple. Do want!

Reclaimed Wood For A Better Watch

Reclaimed Wood For A Better Watch

“The best time to plant a tree was twenty years ago. The second best time is now.” I love this tagline and the simple truth behind it. Essentially this is a direct lift from WeWOOD Watches and they are compelling me to think about what I can do for my planet, even if it’s through Product Design. Sure, haute horology is something everyone craves, but how many can truly say that what they are wearing is something that reminds us of a tree’s powerful way of life; rooted, yet reaching.

For the Archaeologist Within

For the Archaeologist Within

Bones is a one-of-a-kind timepiece that was inspired by the strength and stability of the skeletal structure, and much in the same way our bones support our bodies, the bright ceramic shell protects and stabilizes the soft wood detail throughout the watch. The unique combination of materials and natural shapes creates an interesting, organic aesthetic that’s sure to be a conversation starter.
