It was one of those days you’ve had more than your share of outdoor merriment and fun and you are home by dusk, making room for some great indoor fun to end the day happily; sated. That’s about some reading, a good drink; good food and if an idea strikes then penning it down. “So
Simplifying a jargon In other words, it’s Bluetooth® communication. It helps a watch to link with a mobile phone running an app that gives you access to a watch’s various functions and settings. You don’t need to fumble with the buttons and crowns in the conventional way anymore. This comes as a great aid to
We got this far; however, it’s high time we mark the differences (and similarities) clearly between a smart and a hybrid. Only then we will be able to see how a hybrid watch can benefit you. Don’t just hit the ‘Buy’ button at once.[Recap] Points of contrasts Knowing these so-called differences between hybrid and smart-watches will help
While some think the smartphone to be enough blight; a smart watch does help to remove that stigma up to quite an extent. A small confession to begin with It’s for more than one reason I sat down to pen down some of my observations on the Smart Watch. Certainly they don’t exude the timeless elegance
RC or GPS – What should be your choice? On our way to pick the right one You can always take an easy way out dodging past that question, going for the GPS-Atomic hybrid; the system combining GPS signals and standard radio waves from multiple locations to display an accurately accurate time. Many would;
Imagine running a chronograph, an alarm, a countdown timer, World time/dual time functions, a fully automatic calendar, Mobile Link (Wireless Linking Using Bluetooth®), a Phone Finder, LED light, an AM/PM indicator – all running at the same time on a battery with a limited life-span. Frequent battery replacement – in this case – is inevitable.
With this post, we’ll end the dial-related discussions we held since some time. To go back where we started from, click here. We now speak about NTPTTM Carbon. Extremely thin layers of carbon fiber 30 microns each twisted to 45 degrees to the next layer. This creates distinctive patterns upon machining a solid block, depending
Navigating the complicated, online maze for that perfect timepiece is fun till you feel dazed and confused. This is the time when you feel like throwing away your preferences and going for the next one you come across; worse, you give up the spree altogether. Should you have stayed focused on a few, good points;
Those that get moving from stop (after running for some time) and give us the advantage of finding back the time we apparently lost; we call them the split-time chronographs. Chronographs: Nothing hair-splitting about it The magic of chronographs is eternal! It’s for many among us. It measures for us the passage of time upon
This is something similar to what once I came across in a gun forum. The questioner sought advice from other members about two particular brands of handguns; about which one would make a better personal defense tool – a Walther PPK or a M1911A1 – both in .38 cal. The real knowledgeable forum members down-voted
Power reserve is not something belonging just to the realm of mechanical watches. The Solar, Tough-Solar, Eco Drive or Kinetic Direct-Drive – all got their own versions of power reserves. The duration varies and longer ones are tougher to obtain with single-mainspring mechanical movements than with electronic types. Truly outstanding entries in the power department
A word of advice from Gonzo: NEVER, EVER go for a digital watch unless: You got some real hots for the digital format. Some particular digital model tickles your fancy. You are into a very, very active lifestyle and inclined to the adventurous side of life. Digital watches are mostly sleek and sporty and meant
Affordable, a vague and variable term; in modern luxury contexts presents something presentable; something that doesn’t cost you an arm and a leg. The watch kingdom, as we see it today, offers quite a few of such surprises worthy of respect. Which to endorse? All equally good for the purposes they have been built. Most
Purchase something on your birthday! It’s not mandatory that you go for a lump-something, but it should commentate the occasion for an extensive period. In simple words, it should last. Purchasing a new timepiece serves the purpose well. Many prefer exotic chronographs that are worth looking at and these do not cost you a fortune. You may consider them over a Patek or a VC or a Lange, for very few would put those super-expensive big names under a real test.
Casio has been belting out real surprises for its Edifice line for quite some time. These refined cousins of their G-Shock lineup made possible wearing tech with your everyday clothes without being blatant about it. That’s what is most likeable about the Edifices and with their EQS line-up; things definitely turn a whole lot rosier.
