Fitbit Surge

Even with the Apple Watch release looming in the horizon, other companies are pressing ahead with their digital watches and fitness trackers. Fitbit has announced that the Fitbit Surge is now available for pre-order for $249.95. This “Super Watch” has some unique features that I’ve not seen elsewhere.

Greyhours Essential Watch

The Essential is a sleek timepiece made by Greyhours that represents everything I want in a watch. This minimalist watch tracks only the time, day, and date—the only features I really care about—and it’s beautiful to boot.

Mondaine Swiss Railway Watch

The clocks used along the Swiss Federal Railway have a very iconic design, one that is both simple and elegant. Even Apple couldn’t resist using this trademarked look in the iPad’s clock app. Since I can’t very well strap an iPad to my arm without looking like a complete idiot, I’m looking into getting one of the official Mondaine Swiss Railway watches,…
