The competition for iPhone and iPad is stronger than ever, and Apple finally decided to change their product strategy, trying to be the first to introduce a new gadget trend: the wearable technology. Let’s face it, they did not come with a new device for some time. In the last years, they just polished their old gadgets, making those minor modifications look like major improvements. But, seeing Samsung’s sale numbers from 2012, I guess they decided to switch their strategy and went for diversity. Maybe it was about time to innovate and create new gadgets. We love upgrades and iPhone 5 is a great smartphone, but we need to see that spark that made us fall in love with Apple for the first time.
Maybe the title is not suited for this post, because I’m going to present expensive items. Someone said that “The watches I liked, I couldn’t afford … so I decided to capture good images of them instead”.Wearing a timepiece is more than fashion or style, it’s a passion that must be justified. A timepiece is so personal, it defines who you are, it’s a mirror of your personality. Everything comes with a price, and if you want to know more about high-end watches, you should first understand that the culture of luxury watches is an art: you either live it, or you don’t, and that’s it….
We live in a world where social etiquette and visual indicators are really powerful and sometimes definitive, but this does not mean you have to spend everything you have on appearance. The taste is not a matter of money, it’s a matter of feeling.
So, if I buy a watch that’s over $3,000, I’m not investing in a device, I’m investing in an art object, in something unique and precious. Maybe I’m taking things too far, but for some folks, the watch is like a mirror of their soul, ticking day by day.
Following The Engine Watch, I would like to present a fresh and unique design: The Bullet Watch.
Designed by Yvan Arpa, The Bullet Watch combines bullets and timepieces in fresh and outstanding appeareance. I’m not a fan of guns, but I would buy this piece.
The watch is called Sun of a Gun, and the concept is a metaphor, meaning that time is a killer. This is just the beginning of Arpa’s long range of morbid watches. via artya.com
Sony Smartwatch could be your smartphone’s best friend, giving you a quicker way to read text messages and emails and receive updates on social networks. Also, the accessory can manage phone calls and control music player on your phone.
SmartWatch links to your phone via Bluetooth connection. It is resistant to dust and moisture, can operate for several days with one battery charge and it is compatible with a wide range of Android-based smartphone models offered by manufacturers such as Sony, HTC, Motorola, Samsung and others.
I wrote many times about watches on Crazy Cool Gadgets and I always try to find new and interesting watch designs. The Engine Watch is developed by 2LMXx and only 5 watches like this are made per year, so you’ll have to be very lucky or very rich in order to get one.
If you loved the “Tron Legacy” movie, you’ll love this watch. 2 Beating rings of illume, a stylish futuristic invention & LEDs winding around your wrist, this Tron Style watch adds an ultra-modern feeling to what is basically a veritable watch.
It may appear bizarre, but those 2 haloes point to the minutes and bits precisely as a conventional wristwatch making it easy to read at a coup d’oeil.
This watch is called IQ Watch and it’s designed by Ralf Sachs. Amazing concept, great idea.
I really loved math in high-school, but it took me a while to understand what the number ’5′ in this Fortis’ IQ watch stands for. The decorations on this Geek Watch are laced with super-luminova.

If you read this blog for some time, you know that I’m a fan of solar energy. The main reason is that solar energy is clean, green and assures the sustainability of planet Earth!

So, here are my findings: my top 5 Solar Powered Gadgets:
