What is now a gadget that every guy has? I’ll give you a hint: It’s a clothing accessory that every guy throws on before leaving the house. Watches. We wanted to find some of the more amazing and cool watches and bring them to you. There are links provided to each one so you can purchase them if you so choose. So sit back and enjoy 2012 Gadgets 4 Guys Watch Gift Guide. Ladies, we recommend you go ahead and pick one of these gadgets out for your guy this year for the holidays.
This was probably one of our favorite Gadgets 4 Guys items that we stumbled across and knew it would have to make our best of 2012 Watches List. The watch at first glance appears to be just a straight band but when you are ready to activate the watch, you simply rotate your wrist. The time appears but then you actually have the ability to go through the different functions with a very nice and intuitive swipe option. The watch is a show stopper and will immediately garner the attention of anybody around when you activate the watch. This is one that we are considering purchase just to get the true hands on with the watch. That says something when a product is even considered for our limited budget to do hands on with the tech gadgets we find 🙂
E-Ink Phosphor Watches
So we picked this model out of a lot of different options that the company Phosphor has produced. They have been picking up a lot of steam lately and were even featured on KickStarter. The watches look amazing (full disclosure: we don’t have a hands on with this product) and they have used some of the cool technology to integrate into the wrist watches. We know the e-ink type of technology that is used within the different e-readers out there and Phosphor applied it to their wrist watches. After looking through their entire watch collection, we made the decision that the e-ink digital hour clock watch was E-Ink Digital Hour Clock with the black leather band. It looks amazing and the particular one we liked as a gadget 4 guys featured product had a simplicity combined with elegance approach. You can purchase the watches directly from the Phosphor online store.
The Reveal Watch
This watch is very minimalist in the way that it appears on the face of the watch. It turns a standard analog watch into one that appears to be digital. The name of the watch explains it all and “reveals” the time to the person wearing it. You can find The Reveal Watch at the Yanko Design website and the simple appeal of this watch makes it a Gadget 4 Guys.
So this watch comes from the designer Christophe Claret and is a very unique and specialty watch that is done and sold in limited amounts. We were unable to find the actual price tag because it appears the watch is sold in approved only retailer locations (the Wynn in Vegas is one of them).
