THIS IS CRAZY !!!
Apple Watch was designed to be secured to your wrist, its diminutive size also lends itself well to other places, an unlikely one being at the steering wheel of your car thanks to the Oh-Thumb peripheral. While seemingly strange at first, the placement actually makes sense given the easy operability of the device with only your thumb, negating the need to dedicate an entire hand away from the steering wheel to prod at your smartphone. This allows you to focus on driving instead, while you might want to use something with some more screen real estate for driving directions. The Oh-Thumb is currently being funded on Japanese crowdfunding platform Makuake, and is due to ship in November of this year.

According to their numbers, when the Watch first launched it was selling at around 35,000 units a day, and now the number has dropped to a measly 5,000 units per day. Although the data may not be perfect, it certainly sheds some light on how the product is doing. While we all have fond memories of endless lineups for the latest iPhone and hot anticipation for any Apple device, this slow down may surprise many.
In addition to introducing Apple Music as well as iOS 9, Apple today previewed watchOS 2, the first major software update for Apple Watch. One of the most requested updates, watchOS 2 will finally let you turn your favorite photo into a new watch face or view pictures from your favorite photo album with the new Photo and Photo Album watch faces. Also, with the Time-Lapse watch face, you can choose from a selection of time-lapse videos shot over 24 hours in iconic locations including New York City, London or Shanghai.
A new Time Travel feature lets users scroll with the Digital Crown to explore events in the future (and past) including upcoming meetings or activities, the temperature for the week, and information from third-party apps, such as upcoming flight information.
Additional watchOS 2 features include: Nightstand Mode that transforms Apple Watch into a bedside alarm clock, with the Digital Crown and side button serving as snooze and off buttons for the alarm; support for Transit in Maps, so you can view detailed transportation maps and schedules, including walking directions to the nearest stations with entrances and exits precisely mapped; using Siri to start specific workouts, launch Glances and reply to email; and Activation Lock, which lets users secure their Apple Watch with their Apple ID, preventing another user from wiping or activating the device if it is lost or stolen.
watchOS 2 will be available this fall as a free update to Apple Watch. For more information click here.
Created with means of measuring and recording a series of consecutive lap times, Audemars Piguet presents the new Royal Oak Concept Laptimer. The wristwear has been largely comprised of forged carbon and titanium, as it is a followup to the 2010 delivery by Audemars Piguet ambassador and 7-time Formula 1 world champion Michael Schumacher.
The watch showcases split-second measurement thanks to two central seconds hands. With the press of a button, one hand stops and the other continues to circulate, altogether marking an intermediate time. The hands can then be reunited upon pushing the button once again. The wristwear can also measure, display and record record time with a single second hand while the other can be stopped and restarted independently.
This impressive and functional work of art from Audemars Piguet is set to be released in limited edition fashion (221 units) with a price tag of $229,500 USD.
The French house that specializes in making outstanding jewelry and watches has pushed the boundaries and mastered the technique that redefines creativity and expertise.

Though the watch is powered by caliber 430 MC, it’s this unique setting that brings life to this time-telling device.
