The Simplest-Looking Watch on the Planet Is Actually Super Smart

By Molly Oswaks on at

The Mutewatch may look like just a loop of plastic with a buckle, but don't let its featureless face fool you. With one tap, a digital time display appears on your wrist.

Its three modes—alarm, timer and clock—can be accessed by swiping its flat touchscreen, in the same way you slide to unlock an iPhone. To set an alarm, tap the top of a digit for a higher number or the bottom for a lower and squeeze the face to set your wakeup.

The Mutewatch is highly motion sensitive and will increase its vibration to match your own movement: so, if you're fast asleep, you'll wake (hopefully?!) to a base-level shake; if you're out for a jog and have an alarm set for a reminder of something, Mutewatch will vibrate stronger, so you can feel it.

£160 may seem like a heavy price tag for such a simple-looking design, but Mutewatch is anything but simple. [Watchismo via BoingBoing]
