We’ve had smart watches and fitness bands with heart rate sensors for a few years now. We’ve seen Casio smart watches with Bluetooth, whether they had analog dials, digital, or were all-out Android Wear. Now, for the first time, heart rate is built in the G-Shock MOVE GBD-H1000.
In the world of watches, there is no doubting the popularity of the dive watch. It’s an ever-present style in the broader category of sports watches, and it screams of robustness intended for hard use outside. The problem is – how do you make your dive watch stand apart, particularly if you’ve not got decades of history to pull upon? Well, you focus on a different aquatic sport, say, surfing. That’s what Shinola has done with the introduction of The Duck.
Time and again, there’s a singular type of watch that proves popular on Crowdfunding sites, particularly when a brand is starting out. That style, of course, is the dive watch. Sure, many brands pretend to go the minimalist route, but it’s really just a parts catalog exercise. When it comes to divers, you really do get a diverse look across brands. The latest, making a very colorful splash, is the Audric Seaborne 500.
Hope is something you give yourself.
We never publish anything provided by a brand as-is, we comment on it, try and provide more information. Today is a little different. O&W, a watch brand acted quickly and has set to making masks. Here’s the info and ways you can help.
H. Moser is certainly no stranger to coming up with crazy one-off ideas, generally poking fun at some aspect of the industry. Last year, however, the fun was had at their expense, when they posted up a watch with a black dial and blacked-out hands. You know, sort of ensuring that the one thing a watch is meant to do – tell time – would be all but impossible. Well, the folks just ate up the idea, so here we are a year later, and these watches are real.
Casio makes amazing and amazingly rugged watches. For under $200, you can get one of the hardest-to-kill timepieces around. That’s why we love the new Utility Color GA-2000, a capo colored G-Shock multi-function piece with massive water resistance and great style.vv
The Casio PRT-B50 is a stylish hybrid workhorse of the Casio ProTrek series of outdoor watches – it has both analog and digital sides, and pairs with a smartphone app for settings and customizations. The newly released YT-1 model adds to the line by featuring a black ion plated titanium bracelet and clasp, giving the whole package a sleek, stylish look.
It seems like it was not all that long ago that we were talking about the Christopher Ward C60 Elite 1000. And it wasn’t actually, just at the end of February. In the intervening time, we’ve gotten a loaner in for review (which is actually on my wrist as I write this article), and now there’s a new version hitting the catalog – the Christopher Ward C60 Elite GMT 1000.
The Casio F-91W is almost the classic digital watch – it’s small, light, easy to use, and inexpensive – but it works. People around the world have been wearing this classic watch forever- including myself. Now, Casio has released a new special color edition of the watch, featuring pastel colors, clear and smoke grey, in translucent jelly straps – a fun new refresh of the classic.
We strongly believe in microbrands. Not just for the value they represent (frequently, they’re more affordable than big Swiss brands sold in boutiques), and not just for the romantic notion of the entrepreneur, but because they have greater creativity, and are willing to try things that are off the beaten path. One of those is Esoteric, with the ESO Bathayal.
