Could this watch help you appreciate the little moments in life a bit better?

Time to change the way we see time. Wundrwatch is coming. Official Trailer (4K Ultra HD)
You may have to learn a new way to tell time, but it’ll be worth it. Say hello to the Wundrwatch, a timepiece that has but one hand, making for a 24 hour clock that helps you “appreciate those special moments that matter.” Because its single hand passes each marker only once a day, the Wundrwatch promises to give wearers a new appreciation for the ephemerality of time, and perhaps, life itself.

Currently available on Kickstarter, the Wundrwatch has already surpassed its funding goal with a month left in its campaign. The Swiss movement of the piece is waterproof up to 100 meters, with a stainless steel case and a non-reflecting, extra-hardened mineral glass face. Wundrwatch’s straps are made of Italian leather, and can be changed with the push of a button to fit any outfit and every mood. And with a battery life of 46 months, you won’t have to waste any precious time keeping your watch running.

While the Wundrwatch, like all watches, is meant to help you keep track of time, precision won’t necessarily be its strong suit. After all, the team says, “Does it really matter if it’s 10:22 or 10:24? Usually no.”

Promising accuracy within five minutes, Wundrwatch makers note, “A day has 24 hours, so we think a watch should have [the same]. This allows you to see the entire day in one view and experience time in its very natural state.” Besides, the team says, you have your smartphone to give you exact, down to the minute clock readings.

“We live in a world run by time, constantly reminded and driven by our smartphone notifications of meetings, calls, dates, and events,” the Wundrwatch team says on its Kickstarter page. “With Wundrwatch, we want to create a reminder of how particular every moment of life is. Because we think life is not about time, but what we make out of it.”

Samsung and Thom Browne give you a reason to spend more on a Galaxy Watch 4
Close-up of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 Classic Thom Browne Edition's custom watch face.

Samsung has announced that its Galaxy Watch 4 Classic Thom Browne Edition smartwatch will be available starting September 29 for $800. The limited-edition smartwatch comes in a pack with three different straps, and has five special Thom Browne watch faces already installed. It arrives several weeks after the release of the standard edition, which costs $350.

The Thom Browne Edition is based on the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic and will only be available in the 42mm size. The sporty Galaxy Watch 4 won't get a Thom Browne edition. What makes the Thom Browne Edition special is that, rather than leaving the smartwatch's stainless steel case bare, rhodium plating has been added to it. Often found coating the case, dial, or movement on mechanical watches, rhodium is durable, resistant to corrosion, and scratch-resistant, plus it gives stainless steel a highly polished appearance. There's a Thom Browne inscription on the side of the case, too.

Google has been rumored to be working on a Pixel Watch for years now, and over that time we've heard rumors of development and cancelation of the project. Now, however, it seems as though the Pixel Watch is full steam ahead -- at least according to new leaks from leaker Jon Prosser.

If accurate, the Pixel Watch could end up being one of the better-looking smartwatches out there. Unlike the Apple Watch, the device has a round display, and it looks relatively thin, which is always nice.

What do we mean by rugged? The Watch GS’s body is made from reinforced polycarbonate with a stainless steel bezel, all built to meet the MIL-STD-810G military toughness standard. It’s water resistant to 50 meters, and withstands shock and extreme temperatures, too. In other words, it won’t mind if you take it swimming, skiing, or hiking.
