Watches are considered a necessity for many, and even a luxury for a few. For the blind, there are two options to read the time; One being an analogue watch with static bumps that help users orient the watch hands in relation to the watch face, but the solution can be inaccurate and time consuming. The other option, a digital watch tells the user the time with a voice, but this can be disruptive and the user cannot check the time discretely. With Haptica Braille Watch, designed by David Chavez, visually impaired users can read their watches by using the adopted Braille system. The result is actually quite stunning and beautiful. The Watch has won two international recognition awards through its beauty and innovation. Also received the 2020 National Design Triennial at the Cooper Hewitt Museum. The developer of the watch asks that everyone who reads this entry help spread the news for this concept to become a reality as it needs massive funding.

We’ve all heard of the group Far East Movement from their chart topping song “Like A G6”. Now the group also tops the scene in fashion with a style of their own, wearing many things that are “fly like a G6”. In their “LA Dreamer/Rocketeer” they sport a nifty watch by LA entrepreneur Levi Maestor of the web television series, Levi Knows.
Maestro began this project with jewelry designer Shayan Afshar with the intention to “communicate that when I give my heart & my word to something, then my energy, my love, my mind, & of course my time become infinitely dedicated”.

The piece is meant to be a reminder that anything becomes achievable when one gives his all to do something. The handless watch serves poetically for that symbol of hard work through time; now that hard work could be an infinite work ethic, or ironically we can waste time and not even know how much of it had gone by. The watch has a very sleek & modern appeal that utilizes a black PVD finish for the case and bezel, making the price point also very affordable at $85 USD.

We all know that Apple make some great products but they are definitely not known for making watches - that is until now. When Steve Jobs alluded to the new iPod nano as being watch-like it spawned a whole host of companies to come up with various designs to hold the little gadget firmly on your wrist.
The most famous perhaps was created by Scott Wilson, the founder of Chicago-based MINIMAL, who put the call out on Kickstarter to bring his TikTok Nano watch idea to reality and raised a cool million dollars in the process. Here at NW towers we love gadget watches and couldn’t resist compiling a short list of what we deem to be the best straps on the market right now!

Nike and TomTom have collaborated to create the Nike+ SportWatch GPS. In essence its a wrist-mounted portable computer that supplies an athlete with information they may need while on a run. It captures location details and shows time, distance, pace and calories burnt on the screen within a customisable layout.
Tap the screen to set laps and activate backlight, or view history with data from past runs. Owners can access personal records including those from Nikeplus.com and even connect up a heart monitor. The GPS receiver works in tandem with the Nike+ Sensor, which is built into an athlete’s shoe and feeds additional information to the device.Plug it into your Mac or PC and the Nike+ Connect interface will launch for automatic information transfer to Nikeplus.com.
From here, each run is graphically mapped using TomTom technology and includes route notes, elevation and length. Runners can find their ideal route and search by location, length, difficulty and landmark.Data from each run is automatically applied to all current Nike+ Challenges, Nike+ Goals and Nike+ Coach programs in which the runner is involved.To top it off, the watch also gives acknowledgements and encouragements. The Nike+ SportWatch GPS will go on sale from the 1st of April. Checkout more gadget watches on the store.
